May 09, 2011 – Portland, OR – The Lumberyard is positioning itself to be the premier indoor bike park operator in the Pacific Northwest. With the initial location slated for Portland, Oregon, the Lumberyard will deliver year-round riding opportunities to fulfill a latent need for recreational cyclists of all types, ages and abilities.
The Lumberyard features beginner/sport/expert sections, a foam pit, rhythm & jump lines, a BMX street park, pump/race tracks, XC loop and much more. It will be more than a riding venue and will serve as a community cycling hub and a world-class training facility. Skills workshops, day camps, private instruction, races/competitions, demo days will all be offered at the Lumberyard. It will include a concession counter with food and drink, a cafe lounge for parents and an event room for special events, parties and club meetings. Additionally, the Lumberyard will have a small retail & service shop, providing replacement parts and rental services for bikes and safety equipment.
A short fly-through video of a conceptual rendering is available on the Lumberyard Vimeo page.
