    Pump Track in Oakland

    Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay - BTCEB.org
    Published by Lauren Haughey October 6 at 11:07 AM
    Thanks to the efforts of a core group of dedicated volunteers, and support from the Bicycle Trails Council East Bay (BTCEB) and the Oakland Composite High School MTB club - the city of Oakland has approved the permit for a pump track in the city of Oakland's Joaquin Miller Park. The Oakland pump track will be free and open for all; situated on city owned park land (not currently being used), and built and maintained by the community.

    Please join our efforts to help fund raise for this project! Donations are tax deductible. Donate, and read more about it here ...

    Yeah, I don't understand the location either. Seems clearly to be Redwood Park.

    Here's where I got the info: https://www.facebook.com/OaklandDEVO...0749290211989/

    If you look at the JMP map attached, that spot is part of JMP and not Redwood. Remember, Skyline Blvd is NOT the boundary of JMP. The park crosses the road as well.

Definitely a creepy area when riding alone at dusk. A pump track will add some extra fun to the loop I do. I'll donate some money for that cause!

    Every pump track I have been to is better than McLaren, so I would guess the answer is yes, before it's even built

    dont forget that many companies will match your charitable donations and BTCEB is a 501.3c so it should be eligible. check your employee benefits!
