New Bike Park in Tampa

I hope that this project is a welcomed addition to the area, if attendance is sub-par we can always go back to what we have for our sport, nothing in the area but riding on pavement for miles and miles and calling it a "trail"...

Anywhere new to ride is welcome. We appreciate the hard work. I work right down the road from there and have plans to check it out as soon as its ready.

Drove by the gate two days ago,,

Grass all growing tall, The Trail work I saw a few months ago was no longer visible. looks like It's already closed for good.

I got to get a better look at the size of the place,,way too small for my taste..
I seek only the 'Flow'

yeah, a lot that small was never gonna fly for xc type trail. What I think could have worked would be some small jump lines similar to whats at the vortex TH, some skinnies, and other technical objects to wreck yourself on :)
