Ogden's Mountain Bike Park

Ogden has awesome trails that are easy to access already, but it still needs a mountain bike park. If set up like many city run bike parks, it will have something for everyone. A skills area for the budding rippers, a pump track, some things to huck for those that prefer to occasionally disconnect from the trail, and flow trails for those that like rhythm. This will help people that want to try mountain biking have a better first experience and try it again. Those of us with families will be able to spend less time away while still getting on our bikes because we have an option everyone can enjoy so we can bring them along. Having a controlled environment to practice the basics will help everyone to gain more control of the bike and hopefully help better understand our limits so we can stay on hiker's good graces, or get on those good graces. Ogden's bike park has been in the works since late 2007, but with the latest meeting it has a real opportunity to become reality with professional trail builders designing it. With enough community support it can become everything that Valmont or Trailside bike parks are.

  5. Road bikes have thinner, smoother tires. The tires of mountain bikes, however, are broad with a significant amount of traction to handle rough terrains.

  6. When you buy a mountain bike, take a look at the tires. Do you plan to ride on very rugged terrain? Then make sure the tires are wide, a little bulky, and provides lots of traction. motorcycle shipping
