Brookfield Park Bike Skills

TrailsforYouth.Org, in partnership with the Fairfax County Park Authority, and with support from the local Springfield Civic Association, community members, and others advocated and built a small bicycle pump track at Brookfield Park in Springfield. This fun dirt pump track provides additional opportunities for local families to enjoy learning or improving their mountain bike skills which give them confidence as they start to ride on the local mountain bike trails.

TYO is working with the local park authority and our local IMBA chapter, MORE, to increase biking opportunities at Brookfield Park for local BIPOC youth. For more information, or to follow their efforts, follow them on Facebook for updates.

 

“This track is perfect, my son wouldn’t touch the strider bike at home and hated it, now he wants to come here and ride over and over and is learning how to ride. It’s great, we love it!”
