Nearly twelve years ago, the Truckee Bike Park, broke ground. At last, it’s entered into the final phase of the construction process. The new Truckee Bike Park is a treasured addition to the community because it provides a safe place for kids of all ages to ride. Below are the highlights from the article published by Sierra Sun, but if you would like to read the full story click here.
12 years ago, Courtney Knudson and Brooks McMullin came together and planned how to build a community bike park.
“It’s a passion project that started and now we’re 12 years into it” – Knudson
As far as the final phase of the park, work has begun on a slopestyle zone with new features. The new features will include a wallride and a shark fin. The new zone will have areas for progression, which has become a staple at the park. (Source)
The New Bike Park
The park’s main annual event, The Little Big Bike Festival, has been announced for June 24th and 25th. The two-day event will feature dual slalom competitions, children’s pump track jam, a jump jam, and cash prizes.

“It needs to change into a fully funded thing if we-re going to keep it free”- Knudson
The Truckee Bike Park is free to the public and made possible through a partnership between nonprofit Biking for a Better World, Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District, Truckee Tahoe Airport District, and Truckee Sanitary District. (Source)
The park is coming off a successful fundraiser at Bar of America but still needs more donations to offset the annual maintenance fees stemming from labor, machinery rentals, dirt, and other costs.
