Mountain bike parks have exploded in popularity the past few years. They come in
many variations, and different surfaces. Sometimes they include pump tracks, flow trails or jumps. Planet Zero Gravity focuses on
helping build a specific type of bike park, a ‘Skills Park’. It has
features designed to help mountain bikers become better riders. Instead of big jumps and intimidating rails, a skills park builds confidence and contains elements to build balance and help prepare riders for what they may encounter in a natural trail setting. A big plus is they can be built in small areas, sometimes only a parcel of 1/4 acre can suffice. This makes them a great addition to urban or brownfield renovation projects.
