The McLaren Bike Park Founders have worked for over six years to bring a world class bike park to the kids of San Francisco’s southeastern neighborhoods. The SF Recreation & Parks Department has allocated just under 4 acres of land. City and neighborhood organizations have rallied to support the cause. So far, we’ve raised over $550,000 in grants, but need to raise additional funds for design.
Come have a blast, eat some great food, drink some drinks and help us close the funding gap!!! Attend the MBP DIG Silent Auction and Fundraiser, April 26th to benefit McLaren bike park. Buy Tickets here. If you can’t make the event, please donate here. With your help, kids of all ages will be riding in San Francisco’s first bike park as soon as Spring 2016!
Your tax-deductible ticket purchase gets you into the MBP DIG dinner and silent auction. Grab a table for appetizers, oven herb roasted chicken, pesto pasta, veggies, sides, dessert and beer. After dinner, check out the auction for great deals from bike companies and local bike shops and businesses. You’ll find everything from a complete Intense Cycles Carbine 275 to Stance Socks, Rumpl Blankets, bike apparel, premium Giants Tickets, and much, much more.
But, most importantly, you’ll be supporting McLaren Bike Park with that last pedal stroke to breaking ground on Phase 1.
If you’ve got a chunk of cash, check out the naming opportunities to help fund the remaining phases of the park.
To help plan the the location of the features in the park to maximize the space and flow, Alpine Bike Parks, the designer of Valmont Bike Park is designing MBP, and has enlisted professional riders like Cam McCaul to help.
Now, we need your help if we want to keep the project on schedule and be riding Phase 1 in 2016!
