The Sturgis PAL Board of Directors has teamed up with the staff of Extreme Dakota Bicycles and collectively begun efforts to raise funds for the construction of the Sturgis Bike Park. The Sturgis Bike Park will be built for users of all ages.
Phase 1 of the Sturgis Bike Park includes two paved “Pump Tracks.” One pump track for users of all ages and the second pump track will be designed for younger and smaller children. A “Pump Track” is a fun place to ride, skate or use a scooter for people of all ages and skill level. The “Pump Track” is designed so the rider can maneuver the track with minimal pedaling or pushing.
Phase 2 will be a “North-Shore” style skills park for users of all ages and skill level. The skills park will include obstacles such as drops, wall rides, skinny lines and jumps. The skills park will be constructed with a combination of wooden obstacles and dirt paths.
Phase 3 will include the construction of dirt jump park, which will include a series of BMX style dirt ramps and table-top jumps constructed with safety in mind.
Sturgis PAL will be contracting with Pumptrax USA to complete the construction of the Sturgis Bike Park. Pumptax USA specializes in the construction of top caliber BMX and Pump Track. Pumptrax USA was contracted to build Olympic BMX tracks for the 2008, 2012 & 2016 Summer Olympics.
