In May 2016, a Peterborough family came to B!KE on George Street with an idea: To create a facility that supports the development of skilled cyclists. A place for play for people of all ages. This simple idea sparked passion within the electric city’s cycling community, and planning for a bike skills park within Peterborough began.
A bike skills park provides a safe, natural space where bike riders of all ages, on all types of bikes, can practice bike handling. With planned features, riders are provided a self-taught environment that allows for skills progression; from toddlers learning to balance on their first strider bike, to aspiring racers honing advanced skills.
To make BikeParkPTBO a reality we need the support of the over 700 members of B!KE, and the Peterborough Cycling Club. We must also reach out and engage the greater Peterborough community.
