Taylor and his helpers designed and constructed a mountain bike skills course for the town park. The course is a place for all ages and ability levels to improve their mountain biking skills. It has multiple features from easy to difficult with each feature having a description and instructions on how to use it. The description teaches the riders about their approach, body position, balance, importance of momentum and speed control.
The project involved several approvals with the town, a town insurance policy change, a community survey, mapping of the course, building permit, dig survey, design drawings of all features, installation and town waver info. This project started with a simple idea based on my love for mountain biking and our town not having anything. It took lots of dedication, and in the end it has been a huge success.
