We brought a pump track to the Spring Roll this May, and it was the most popular feature in the roll – there was a line from before the event even started until the guys started taking the track apart to put it away.
Kids lined up and rode around the track 3 or 4 times before letting the next one on, and that continued for well over 3 hours.
We are working to raise money to bring this exact track to a park in Corvallis. The city has agreed this is a good idea and we’ve recently got word that the track will be located downtown, under the overpass – near the existing skate park. We couldn’t be happier with the location as it is centrally located, is right on the bike path, there is great parking, and fits in well with the existing facilities.
There are many options available – we’d like to bring at least a medium-sized track to a park near you. If you are interested in helping out or learning more, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All in all, the Spring Roll was very fun all around, hundreds rode around 3 city blocks for an hour.
There are three different configurations we are targeting and hope to make a reality, here are some photos of them.

THANKS FOR SUPPORTING TEAM DIRT AND HELPING US EXPAND THE ALSEA FALLS AND MAC-DUNN FOREST TRAIL SYSTEMS!!
During the short window for the 2015 Build It / Ride It Campaign, Team Dirt raised over $40,000 of the $60,000 goal for a
• Kubota U17 Excavator
• Canycom Mechanized wheel barrow
• Trailer for equipment storage
• Trail building tools
This will allow us to expand our trail systems with 30+ miles of proposed enduro, flow, downhill, and cross-country trails within the next five years.
Team Dirt volunteer time will be more effectively utilized with the support of machinery. Instead of spending countless hours breaking new ground by hand – a slow and tedious process – sustainable trails will be quickly and effectively structured using an excavator, and our volunteers can instead use their efforts to polish the miles of new trails for you to ride!
Team Dirt invited Kat Sweet to come to Alsea Falls and lead two skills clinics for all interested. Kat offered two classes, an all-comer’s on Saturday (October 4) and a women’s only clinic on Sunday. The […]
