No. of Reviews: 1

The Cottage Grove Bike Park is in a 3 acre all inclusive Urban style bike park in an up and coming young neighborhood in the City of Cottage Grove, Mn, a suburb of St. Paul, Mn. It is free to the public and is a grassroots effort. The park as been built primarily by volunteers with the assistance of the local IMBA chapter, The Minnesota Off Road Cyclist (www.morcmtb.org), as well as the City of Cottage Grove Parks and Rec Department.

Cottage Grove Bike Park, at this time, has completed phase one of three phases. The park will open this summer with the 4x track and two pump tracks complete. Phase two of the building will begin as well. The park will be adding a tot track, an area designed for 16 inch wheels and smaller, as well as a dirt jump plaza. The park is also a finalist for the 2014 IMBA/Bell Built Grant. If the grant is won, the winnings would be put toward the Dirt Jump Plaza. Please help us win by going to www.bellhelmets.com/bellbuilt during the weeks of April 21st through May 4th.

Phase three of the park is dependent on funding but is scheduled to begin the summer of 2015 and be complete by fall of 2016. This phase will include an all inclusive mountain bike skills course to help riders develop the skills needed to ride all aspects of this bike park but also any mountain bike trail they may encounter. Phase 3 will also include a slope style course with similar feature to the L and XL slope style course located in Valmont Bike Park in Boulder Co.

Summary:
The parks is awesome! I spend most of last summer helping to build it! It is set to open officially this summer and I am so stoked! Almost every week something new is added out there. When it is 100% done it will be one of the greatest places to ride in MN, especially if you are into alternative riding! It has easy access from around the metro and the community of Cottage Grove is awesome and very receptive!

Recommended Route:
It is right off of HWY 61, just south of HWY 494 in the SE corner of the Twin Cities Metro!
