A Man, A Plan, A Bike Park - Panama
Panama is well-known to travelers for its surfing and rain forests, but it has a growing mountain bike scene that is under the radar of most riders. Thanks to the efforts of Michael Brown, however, that is about to change, as Trail Specialist Jason Wells is currently on the ground in Isla Perico, outside Panama City, building the country's first pro bike park.
Slated to have a pump track, skills development area, kids' circuit trail, and singletrack on the adjacent hillside, Trail Solutions is initiating the development and training local riders and builders on proper construction techniques. Once it is complete is will set the standard for bike parks in Panama and foster the creation of other facilities in the country.
