Mountain Bikes Silo Center Bike Park

6.1.17 UPDATE: Due to construction delays and rain impact, the opening of the Silo Center Bike Park has been postponed. Once we know an official date, we will share that information with the community.

We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to sharing this new amenity with the community soon!

------------------------------------------------------------------

A new hub for the fast-growing Louisville bicycling community will soon open at The Parklands! On Saturday, May 27, 2017, the Silo Center Bike Park in Turkey Run Park will open to the public, offering flow trails, a skills loop and pump tracks, all specially built by the talented professionals at the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA).

Each amenity is suited to a specific level of rider, offering beginners a smooth introduction on less difficult, natural-surface trails, as well as more challenging opportunities for experienced riders. Go at your own pace, testing and improving your abilities using the Toasted Swine Skills Loop and beginner pump track. Once you’re comfortable, hop over to our flow trails or the intermediate pump track.
