Shortly after IMBA’s World Summit conference, Trail Specialists Dan Hudson and Tammy Donahugh visited Newark DE to view and discuss feasible locations for a local pump track and flow lines.
Newark’s local chapter, the Trail Spinners, are well distinguished in planning, fundraising, and building great trails, but this will be their first foray on a bike park style project. Jim Ireland, president of the Trail Spinners, made sure to involve all of the proper stakeholders as well as provide Trail Solutions with a handful of possible locations and ideas for what could be achieved.
After spending two days meeting, riding, and visiting with the locals a site was agreed upon. The development would include gravity style jump lines for all ability levels as well as a pump track. The chosen location has park amenities already in place and links some of their in town trails together. What could be better!?
