“Respect your local trail builders and be a good steward of the physical environment. Keep singletrack single by staying on the trail. Practice Leave No Trace principles. Do not ride muddy trails because it causes rutting, widening and maintenance headaches. Ride through standing water, not around it. Ride (or walk) technical features, not around them.” https://www.imba.com/ride/imba-rules-of-the-trail
South Texas Off Road Mountain-Bikers (STORM) supports efforts to allocate a portion of District 7 Parks 2022 Bond funds for a 20-acre bike park complex in the O.P. Schnabel Park Expansion. Let City Council know that the MTB community wants funding for this bike park complex!
Call 210-207-0870 or Email District7@SanAntonio.gov and let them know that we want and fully support a destination bike park complex built on the 20 acres set aside for this project.
We, the mountain biking community, are excited and grateful for the opportunity to have a 20-acre bike park complex added to the 2022 bond project for funding. With the pump track and beginner bike skills area being implemented into McAllister Park, and another pump track and kids zone area currently under construction at Pearsall Park, the residents in those areas are getting more and more diverse mountain biking and cycling opportunities. Mountain biking in San Antonio has grown exponentially in the last few years, especially during the pandemic. The available trails and bike amenities, like the pump track and skills course at McAllister Park, have seen a tremendous amount of use. This bike park complex to be built in the newly acquired O.P. Schnabel Park Expansion will be the first of its kind in San Antonio, both in size and scope. We constantly hear about people taking trips out of town and out of state to experience the type of bike facilities we now have the opportunity to build in San Antonio. With San Antonio at a population greater than 1.5 million people and Bexar County projected to grow from 1.9 million people in 2020 to over 3.3 million people by 2050, it’s more important than ever to invest in outdoor recreation infrastructure to help improve the health of our citizens.
