The public is invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Torguson Park Pump Track at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 1st. The track is located on the southwest side of Torguson Park at 750 East North Bend Way. Demo rides and guided practice rides for all ages will follow the ribbon cutting from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m.

Come back on Saturday, June 2 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for a Pump Track Party hosted by Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance. The event will include contests, prizes and more.

The 35,000 square feet bike park is now open to all levels of riders. The newly built park replaces an old user-built course and includes features that both advance and novice riders can enjoy together. A separate Striders track offers a safe environment for young children still learning to ride and allows parents to walk along and assist.

The bike park project is a collaborative effort between Si View Metro Parks and City of North Bend along with strong support from the community. Local bike groups and community volunteers including Mount Si Mountain Bike Team and Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance have donated hundreds of volunteer hours building, smoothing and testing the tracks for safety in varying weather conditions.

Funding for the project came from King County Youth Sports Facilities Grant program, City of North Bend, Si View Metro Parks and Si View Community Foundation.
