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!!

I was out on Saturday the 8th trying the jump lines. First time on anything that big. What an adrenaline rush. Planning on coming back out on Saturday for the Grand opening.

On another note. Did you order the wooden jumps as prefab jumps or were they built by hand?
If prefab what is the name of the company you got them from.
Would love to put 1 or 2 of them in at a park in Fishers.

We did order the wooden jumps and features in the Basic Training Skills Zone. They are "pre-built" but we had to assemble them onsite. We got them from Progressive Bike Ramps. They did come out and help install the skills features and showed us how to assemble the ramps. It was quite a bit of work to assemble all those ramps!


Looking forward to having you at the Grand Opening!! Spread the word and bring your friends!

The XC course will be about 6 mile laps. We will follow ALL formatting for DINO's race series, including start times. If you are not familiar with that, here is a link to their formatting: http://static1.1.sqspcdn.com/static/f/1923838/22502296/1455240474250/mtbchart.pdf?token=5%2BlEdB%2BVkFRMEzosPs9TnRenrmY%3D


See you there!
