In 2019 Family FreeRide started in an effort to get kids on their bikes more often. Weekly group rides were organized, and the local bike park was adopted and revitalized. In April 2019, after a year of proposals and grant applications, The Fair Oaks Recreation and Park District Board of Directors approved $30,000 of Measure J funds to add a dirt pump track to the existing Fair Oaks Bike Park. It was built in June and opens to the public on July 6th.
The cost to put in the pump track was covered, but maintenance expenses are not, and that is what this fundraiser is for, and also for other features for the bike park, like a shade structure, an entrance way arch, a metal sculpture built by a local metal artist, made out of old bike parts, to go on top of the arch, a sprinkler system, tools, and volunteer worker incentives like t-shirts and food.
This fundraiser will show the park district that there is community support for the new bike park and help Family FreeRide advocate for expanding the bike park to include a jump area, a perimeter cross country-flow trail, and a larger asphalt pump track.
