Through Bike Fed’s partnership with Baird Creek Preservation Foundation, Saris Foundation, and Hendrickson Family Foundation, Green Bay will soon be home to the new Saris Bike Park @ Baird Creek – a new, state-of-the-art mountain biking skills park.
The Bike Fed has been hard at work in northeast Wisconsin, partnering with advocates in Green Bay and the Baird Creek Preservation Foundation (BCPF) to bring a new mountain biking skills park to the area. We’re excited to announce that thanks to donations from Saris Foundation and the Hendrickson Family Foundation, the skills park is now officially fully funded and will be breaking ground in the coming weeks!
The new Saris Bike Park @ Baird Creek will be an incredible asset to bikers of all ages in Green Bay and surrounding areas who are interested in mountain biking, giving them access to a unique experience within the community.
Once construction is completed, Bike Fed plans to assist in running training camps for young riders, giving them the tools they need to ride and build upon their skills. With mountain biking increasing in popularity, the new bike park and programs that go along with it will serve as a community hub for outdoor recreation, youth engagement, and healthy living.
The park’s mission is simple: to build resilience and self-confidence in our underserved youth by getting them to experience the joy of biking through a world-class network of integrated off-street bike trails and bicycle parks/playgrounds. With this mission in mind, there will be beginner, intermediate, and advanced tracks at the Saris Bike Park @ Baird Creek, addressing the needs of riders of every skill level and ability.
Bike Fed is proud to have been involved in getting this community asset underway for northeast Wisconsinites, and we’re looking forward to working with local staff to establish youth education opportunities and mobile bike repair.
