Inside the Lumberyard Bike Park


Portland, Ore., is blessed with a number of amazing concrete skateparks that are mostly bike-friendly. But one thing that Portland has not possessed in years is an indoor park that catered to BMX [or bike] needs. That left the local BMX scene sitting out the average 155 days of rainfall per year. That is now about to change. Recently, a new bike park opened in the Portland area dubbed The Lumberyard. It's not BMX-specific, but it is BMX friendly, and the locals [including Shad Johnson, Justin Inman, Ben Hucke and Caleb Quanbeck] have started to take advantage of it. In the above video from Ben Hucke, we get an inside look at a typical BMX session inside the Lumberyard.
