Gravel bike shred at Vailocity
Bike park at Vail Lake
Vail lake has been open to the public to ride mountain bikes for several years now. Odds are if you are from Southern California you’ve been out there for a race or a ride. I have another blog about racing at vail lake (click here). Talk around the water cooler has been that they are going to be stepping up their trail making game. Adding to some existing jump lines and creating some new ones. I’ve been watching them move some dirt around out there. Having not been out there since my last race.. (whenever that was??).. I was curious to see if they have made any progress.. They did!
As of right now they have added a new line to the existing jump line. With probably 4 or 5 new jumps. A few of them have decent sized gaps. With wide well built mountain bike jump lips. Also a few new jumps at the bottom of ladders.
Vail Lake pump track
Yes, there is a pump track at Vail now. I’ve spent very little time on it and only on my enduro. Seems pretty cool. Next time I am up there I will have my dirt jumper with me to give it a proper test. (blog will follow).
New jump area
Across the campground from the usual mountain bike area they have scratched in some new jumps lines. As of right now there is like 2ish jump line(s) in place.. All the new jumps/trails are freshly made. They will take a little time before they are fully tracked in. Some of it is a little rough around the edges. BUT! It is well built and fun to ride AND it’s only getting better..
As more things emerge I will be updating this blog as well as making new videos.
