Rossland’s Rossglen Bike Park is getting a facelift to reflect the changing desires of local mountain bike users.

Rossglen has been a fixture for the biking community for the past eight years but is in need of upgrades and expansion and a group of volunteers are working with the City of Rossland to see that happen this summer.

In addition to new wood features, the jump lines will be rebuilt with beginner and intermediate tabletop lines.   The pump track, which is comprised of a loop of tight berms, rollers and features, will be built in phases as funding and volunteer hours are available.

In addition, the large wall ride at the park is getting refurbished and will be utilized for a youth graffiti art project funded by the Youth Action Network (YAN).

Volunteer building days will occur early in the summer and anyone interested is encouraged to attend and lend a hand in the revitalization project.

For more information, contact Ryan Kuhn at (250) 231-9343.
