History

Since 2008, The MBP Founders have been working with The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department, SF Parks AllianceSF Urban Riders, and many other community groups, to bring a bicycle skills park to San Francisco.

Phase 1 opens on Saturday, October 21, 2017!

We need your help to keep the momentum going to get Phase 2 built. Please follow the McLaren Bike Park page on Facebook or contact us here. Please click here to donate.

The bike park’s location as seen from Google Maps, prior to construction of Phase 1.

The location we have secured was a decaying asphalt wasteland, and was used for dumping trash and unwanted furniture, etc. Our plan has removed the asphalt, mitigated the trash dumping and resulted in a recreational facility for the community.

We’ve been working with Alpine Bike Parks to ensure that this park will be professionally designed and constructed, and ultimately become a unique draw to visitors from the Bay Area and beyond.

McLaren Bike Park

MBP Rendering Created by Alpine Bike Parks LLC, Whistler, B.C.

Its design will contain elements appealing to families with children just getting comfortable on two wheels, young adults seeking the thrills of a jump park or wanting to improve their technical skills and anyone that wants to experience the joy of riding a bicycle in an off road environment.

IMG_4144-2It will feature beginner to advanced level bike features such as flowing trails, berms, progressive table top jumps, dirt jumps, wooden ladders, wall rides, a pump track, and much more.

Thanks to everyone for your support, especially the MBP Founders who’ve contributed a wealth of time and money to the project!

    This is an awesome idea. I am semi-geezer 44 that is getting back into bmx racing. I go to Napa BMX track, the closest to me. It makes so much sense to have something like this in SF.
    I pray it happens.

    I have two young boy bike riders and can’t believe we don’t have a pump park in SF. I’d love an update since no news is here for 2012 and would like to help, please post an update
