Bike Parks: Plainfield, IL, Elkridge, MD, and Manhattan, NY

Designed, built, and funded by volunteers, the Plainfield Bike Park has jump lines for all skill levels, as well as a pump track and a technical skills area. Gathering 20-40 riders a day, the progressive design allows beginners to better their skills until they can eventually master the advanced lines. “The park has created a riding spot for hundreds of kids that had nowhere to ride before,” said Kevin Marley, Plainfield Bike Park Coordinator.
