Living in Portland, Oregon, I have rode mountain bikes across the western United States, from San Diego to Seattle, and Utah and Colorado as well. I have seen the positive effects on communities when cities add bike parks to their infrastructure. Recreational cyclists want nothing more than a place to ride that is (a) close to home as possible. (It is best when one can ride from their front door to their favorite place to ride.) And (b) legal, where they don’t have to worry about illegal trail building and hassle from private land owners and law enforcement. Please listen to the residents of San Francisco and adopt the plans to build a bicycle skills park at McLaren Park. Thank You.
