Committee Our committee, led by Kahlil Zaloom and Andrew Cimonetti, was formed in February 2010 to explore the possibility of building a bicycle freestyle terrain park in Essex Junction. The committee members include staff of Essex Junction Recreation and Parks department, an EJRP recreation advisory board member, a professional mountain bike rider and course designer, and approximately 35 community members of varying ages from grade-schoolers to adults.
What is a freestyle bike park? Freestyle bike parks contain a variety of jumps, banked turns (berms), pump tracks and wooden features that can be ridden with a freestyle mountain bike or BMX bike. These features will be built with the specific geography of the property in mind and for riders of all ability levels.
The Dream Became a Reality! In July 2012 the bike park opened and a series of summer bike park camps taught children how to use it and how to take care of it.
