Belle Isle Mountain Bicycle Skills Area Approved
The Richmond (VA) chapter of the Mid-Atlantic Off Road Cyclists (MORE) have partnered with the City of Richmond to create a unique bike skills area on Belle Isle. Utilizing in part a freeway overpass, the site will have an area for cyclists to practice both on- and off-road skills.
IMBA Trail Solutions designed the off-road skills area, which includes:
- Beginner pump track
- Intermediate pump track
- Singletrack trail
- Rock gardens
- Rock drops
- Log rides
- Technical climbs
These features, provided for a range of skill levels, are intended to mimic the types of riding found in the adjacent James River Park, which contains 18 miles of singletrack trails, making it one of the premier gateway trail systems.
