The Jordie Lunn Bike Park opened up to cyclists across the Island Friday in Langford.
The $1.8 million bike park was named after a renowned Langford mountain biker who died trail riding in Mexico in October 2019.
The park was announced in February 2020 and has been a two-year building endeavour with city workers, building partners and community cycling groups. Designed to cater to cyclists of all ages and abilities, the park features dirt jumps, a pump track, a skills area and cyclocross and mountain bike trails covering 14 acres.
The bike park can be accessed off of the Galloping Goose Trail and organizers are asking visitors to ride to the park if they can. They are also asking for people travelling to the bike park from other areas to assess their health and follow all COVID-19 guidelines while visiting.
Bike park staff say they are planning a bigger opening celebration in June.
