Mountain Bike center for kids and adults of all ages
The Truckee Bike Park is a cycling destination that includes a pump track, dirt jumps, flow lines, drop zone, and dual-slalom. The park builds bike skills for all abilities of cyclists, and is fun for the entire family.
The park is the product of a non-profit, volunteer-supported effort to build a world-class destination for locals and tourists.
Our friends brought us to the mountain bike park and we had a blast watching our kids tear up the dirt! Our 4 yo daughter who is not super confident on a bicycle nevertheless had a blast going around the pump track, with some help from daddy pushing and helping her balance.
In truth, the pump track is a safe place for anyone who wants to try their hand at mountain biking on a safer track and learning some core skills (try keeping your momentum WITHOUT pedaling!)
Our 7 yo went on some beginner and even tried an intermediate track a few times.
I would highly recommend gloves, knee and elbow pads for kids who are going on the other tracks and jumps. This is a styled and maintained set of bike tracks, but there's dirt, trees, rocks and plenty of places for a biker to fall down just like any other outdoor park.
You will generally find respectful but adventurous outdoor types here. There are both hardcore mountain bikers and families too just coming for a few rides on the dirt.
note that the parking situation can be really crazy if there's a sports tournament happening at the sports complex. This happened to us, but we were able to get parking.
