JOHN DAY: New bike park is shaping up

Exciting things are happening with the new bicycle trail system being put in at 7th Street in John Day. Ptarmigan Ptrails has begun the trail construction for Phase 1 of the 7th Street Bike Park.  At last night’s City Council meeting Aaron Lieuallen, Senior Project Manager gave an update to the public and said they should be finishing Phase 1 pretty soon. Lieuallen gave us an idea of what the bike park will be like:

“There’s one called the Explorer Trail, which is a trail that beginners can ride on. It kind of circles the bike park. A couple of intermediate ones that have some table ramps and bank corners—a beginner can ride on it, you just go slower. Someone with skills can make it look cool. And then there’s a technical trail further down the hill.”

The Grant County Economic Council and Eastern Oregon Trail Alliance are jointly-sponsoring the project. Find out more at cityofjohnday.com
