I have to tell you it lived up to the hype.
The park truly has something for everyone: jumps, skatepark-style stuff, cross-country…you name it.
Scott Steinbrick, a Ray’s local, was cool enough to meet up with me on Saturday for a session at the park. After a quick tour of what the park all had to offer, it was time for some riding.
I think I ended up riding for close to 4 hours and there’s still plenty of stuff I wish I could have spent more time on. There is so much to see and ride. On top of that, the staff was awesome…very helpful and while seemingly always busy, never reluctant to answer a question or provide assistance.
I want to give a shout out to Scott for showing me around and locals Joe, Brad and Jeff* for being so cool to chat and ride with (and being so spot on with suggestions for places to check out on Saturday night!)
Ray’s MTB is a bike park you definitely want to check out. (I’m already trying to figure out a time when I can go back!) And while I didn’t have the foresight to pack a video camera, the good folks at Vital MTB recently posted a video of the Ray’s season opener that provides a real good feel for what’s like to ride at Ray’s. Check it out.Vodpod videos no longer available.
*I hope I got everyone’s names right…
