Welcome to the FUTURE 

                      Phoenixville Bike Park, PA!

 

The Phoenixville Bike Park will offer three different trails to ride: A beginner-friendly flow-inspired trail, an intermediate trail with approachable features and go-arounds, and an advanced rider trail offering more challenging features and opportunity for skill development! 

...from balance bikes to mountain bikes, BMX bikes and dirt jumpers, there will be something for everyone. Whether you're 18 months old or 118 years young, all riders will have easy and FREE access to the skills park.

Our Skills Park and the three distinct loops will offer trails with a combination of "Skinnies", "Rollers", "A-Frames", "Bridges", "Drops", "Berms" and "Kickers" (did we mention a "Whale Tail" on the Advanced Track?) making for hours of outdoor fun for families, kids, and grownups!

             We are a few thousand dollars away from our goal and

The  building in July 2022 Build!!!

Here's the NEW and IMPROVED Plan!

..Why? To get MORE KIDS ON BIKES and Keep Them There!


Children enjoy a fun place to ride. Actually, we all do! A bike space away from busy streets in a place made for them. Safely tucked into Reservoir Park in Phoenixville, the skills park is easily accessible to folks living in town and across the region! For locals, it's conveniently located on the north side of Phoenixville, accessible by sidewalks, or by street. The Reservoir Park is located directly across the street from the new Recreation Center and catty-cornered to the Renaissance Academy on Fillmore St. The park is adjacent to several neighborhood developments, and rests just a half of a mile from the Schuylkill River Trail access points and trailheads. This new space will be situated next to the Reservoir Dog Park, with ample parking. 


***The Schuylkill River Trail, is a multi-use trail which will eventually run 140 miles, currently winds itself from Parker Ford all the way to Philadelphia. With spurs to Black Rock Sanctuary, the Perkiomen Trail, Valley Forge Park and beyond, The "SRT" makes for a splendid bike-way to and from the skills park! 

The Future Looks Bright!


The future Reservoir Park MTB Skills Park will be enjoyed as a casual recreation space for the community, and it will serve as a practice area for the Phoenixville Inferno and other visiting NICA/PICL Teams. Additional planned events include bike clinics and youth bike programs. Its a space where grown-ups can teach their children the basics of biking and hone their own skills before hitting the adjacent single-track!


It will be a place for friends to gather, laughter to be heard, and accomplishments to be achieved!


Fun, fitness, family and friends... what better way to spend a day?

More Kids On Bikes 501 (c) (3) Is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to get more kids on bikes!

Our primary focus is to support and expand youth mountain biking.

We believe mountain biking is an exciting lifetime activity, that not only offers an opportunity for physical exercise, but also supports mental and emotional wellbeing.

Two primary ways we engage our community is through Phoenixville Inferno Youth Mountain Bike Team (NICA/PICL) and community based Trail Maintenance. These two programs have brought us to this current project!


We at M.K.O.B. are dedicated to supporting the vision to create a MTB Skills Park at Reservoir Park!
We are thrilled to be able to help lead the fundraising initiatives needed to make the The future Reservoir Mountain Bike Skills Park, a reality!

 

We at M.K.O.B. believe mountain biking is more than just a recreational activity, or a hobby. It's a sport that brings people together! Wether the individual or the team, mountain biking helps build self-confidence, teaches perseverance, develops and nurtures the value of personal goal-setting, strengthens leadership skills, and highlights the importance of understanding team building dynamics.


Our mountain bike communities also focus on educating our riders on the importance of proper trail riding etiquette, natural resource stewardship, and service opportunities (like trail maintenance, coaching).


We pride ourselves on reinforcing bike safety measures, providing group riding opportunities and local partnerships.


We are a community of inclusion. Mountain biking (no matter how cold it is outside) is a place of warmth and welcome to all! We strive to be a space for all with an emphasis on equity, equality, safety, access and community.
