~Ben's Bike Playground, a Bike Park at Mirror Lake~ 

Ben's Bike Playground, a trailhead bike park, is coming to Mirror Lake Park next summer, complete with jump lines, skills loop, and pump track. 

Check it out at https://cmbralaska.org/2020/11/25/a-bike-park-at-mirror-lake/

Who's Ben?  Well, Ben Schneider was one of the Chugach Mountain Bike Riders' lead trail builders, the founder of our summer youth mountain bike club (CMBR Kids), and a pretty awesome Anchorage School District PE teacher. He was a champion for connecting youth with the outdoors, leading an effort to construct a bike playground in our community. Ben tragically passed away after a car crash last winter, and we are pulling out all the stops to honor him by bringing this community-driven bike playground project to completion.

Ben's Bike Playground will tie in with the existing Mirror Lake Park picnic area and existing singletrack mountain bike trails.  Beginning, intermediate and advanced riders will enjoy:

  • A dynamic pump track, suitable for all levels of riders.
  • An array of progressive trailhead jump lines.
  • A multi-feature skills loop with rollers, zig-zags, and more!

Existing multi-use and social trails will be repaired and realigned, making a better experience for all trail users. 

YOU can be a part of the awesomeness happening at the Mirror Lake Singletrack and help build a little mountain bike paradise for all to shred!  

DONATE TODAY  ------>

Major funding provided by a grant through the Municipality of Anchorage as well as from YOU. Construction is scheduled for Summer 2021.  Ready to send it?
