Until we get a regular schedule for opening the lake jump, we will try to keep you posted here. Our first "Jump Jam" will be Saturday, August 13th starting at 6pm! We will have safety equipment including life vests, retrieval equipment, spotters in kayaks, etc. Mark your calendars and come jump with us!

Dumped on us some today. Probably be mostly yellow in the morning. Some trails should be green by afternoon if we don't get any more rain. We dry out fairly quick.

The jump lines and dual slalom are not finished yet and are under construction. We made some considerable progress over the weekend and have one intermediate line (4' jumps) pretty darn close. You can see a "test" video on our Facebook page. 

As for the lake jump... it is complete, however it will not be left open to the general public at all times due to liability and safety. We will open it during special events and it will eventually be able to be "rented" on a permit-basis. We were unfortunately too busy over the weekend to open it up at the end of one of the days! Please keep an eye out for the next time.

Thanks for your interest! Please keep riding and spreading the word... and Register for the GRAND OPENING events!! You can find links in the Grand Opening topic thread.

The Lake Crossing Trail and Lake Jump are basically complete! We have some finishing touches but check out some of the photos and videos on our Facebook page! Definitely a BLAST! We have assembled all of our pro-built Ramps and have started placing them on the jump lines. We are also about 100' of bench-cutting away from completing the 1 +/- mile "Advanced Tactical Training Course" (Beginner Loop 1) which includes some steep drops (with a bypass  :) ), fast downhills, and some technicality. It will need ridden in and polished but will shape up to be a great trail.

Our next big push is July 14th - July 17th when our Developer, Hilride Progression Development, will be onsite working with us. We will be installing all the jump ramps, working on building the features for the Dual Slalom course, building other features, and building/polishing up some new trails. We will be ready for Pro Rider Brian Lopes to come ride at our Grand Opening in October!!!

The evening of Friday, July 15th, the night before RAIN, we are hosting a screening of the mt. bike movie Not2Bad at St. Mary of the Wood's College! Come check it out! ALL proceeds will go to the Griffin Bike Park.

Be sure to mark some time on your calendar to come work and ride with us in July! It will be worth your time to experience a jump into the lake!!

We are working this weekend!! Nat Lopes, our developer with Hilride Progression Development is in town today through Sunday. Bring your bikes, come meet the team, help us continue to build, and then ride with us! We will be assembling jump ramps and installing them this weekend, putting the finishing touches on the lake crossing and jump, and building new trails. As always we will be there Thursday to Sunday from 8 am until 4 pm (later usually).

And don't forget to bring your kids on Saturday for IMBA's National Take a Kid Mtn Biking Day!! We are hosting this free event, with food, from Noon to 4 pm.

Come join us!

Very cool! I definitely will be there.

Looking forward to meeting you Dave! I almost hate to admit that I have not made the time to come ride Southwestway yet! I was close enough when I lived in Terre Haute, and I am close enough now that I live in Westfield... I am going to have to squeeze it in between softball games, soccer games, swimming, work, and the Griffin Bike Park!!

Come spend some time this memorial day weekend assembling some jump ramps in honor of those who have fallen! We will be assembling ramps tomorrow, Saturday, May 28th. We will have a BBQ at 11:30 for all who are in attendance. We could use some help assembling and moving these beasts! Just an hour or two will be a HUGE help! Thanks in advance...
