    The rebuilding of Calabazas bike park

    I don't know anything. But my pro builder buddy says he is breaking ground soon.

    Anyone have details?

    Sweet! I've been going there regularly with my 6yo daughter. I'm no expert, but seems like the place could be designed to flow a whole lot better. And some small tables with mellow transitions I think would help a lot for progressing skills.

    If community help is wanted, I'll gladly pick up a shovel. If anyone has any info re: getting involved, please share.

    Basas definitely can use some table tops.
    A rebuild would be so great!

    That said, I wa there just this morning. And no tractor in sight :/
    No signs abt construction etc either but maybe I just missed.

    They did clear the mess of weeds over the last week.

    If anyone has official word, let us know!

    Don't get your hopes up. I talked to a guy from Lake Cunningham that's helping Alex Fowler on this. He said they were mostly just cleaning it up and changing a few features.

    I'm no expert but I think that place sucks soooo bad.

    And maintained even worse.

    Yes, for sure. Iíd love to have the original Calabazas back. The rad ass place I rode back in the late 80ís and early 90ís instead of all these cramped up vert jumps. Need some decent tables and progressive gaps.

    i know itís not going to happen, but thatís how Iíll always remember the true Cali.

    Looks like just a tune-up. For now at least.

    Alex said he has proposed to the city to completely redo the park in abt three years. Concrete for the beginner pump track and mtn bike features where current advanced section is.

    Alex also wants folks to bring him and his team beer. 8am-3pm for next three weeks

    I met Alex. He's a good guy. He designed a pump track around Santa Cruz that was pretty good a few years ago.

    I hope he does something nice with Calabazas. The current "design" was done by a skater, according to the guys at Calabazas Cyclery, which is why there's no flow for it.

    Yeah, yeah.... I guess a lot will hinge on this work and the community feedback. So let's give some feedback.

    Maybe Alex is the one who ordered up all this rain. Yeah!!
