    NorCal Indoor MTB Park! (x-post from DH board)

    Just found out about this. Let's make sure these guys are successful so more places like this will show up around the country. I don't know how much FR oriented they'll be, but it looks like they're using Ray's from Ohio as a template. This may be one of the only institutionalized NorCal riding/pracetice spots left if we lose Sandhill, so let's show them some local love.

    I think it sounds kinda cool, especially for kids who live in the city and can't get to trails without someone driving them.

    I like this idea. I know I could always use an extra chance to sharpen my skills.

    I am not sure it is a sound business idea, but I would love to go at least check it out. I am always looking for new trials/stunts to try. My fear is that this model was a sucess in Ohio where they have long, cold winters. In NorCal, the winters offer too many beautiful days. I can't imagine hordes of riders showing up at this place on a 65 degree sunny day in February.

    The idea is ok... I guess? If you live in Alaska.

    What are the investors thinking? If they wanted to throw money away, I could always use a donation. Oh well... A fool and his money!
