Has anyone been to the new Bike Park in Tegueste?

Notapor potdog » Mié Oct 03, 2007 12:48 pm

Was told about this place http://www.bikeparktenerife.com on a visit to the local bike shop last night. I had a look at the website and it looks excellent for DH'ers and Freeriders, but want to know if there is anything there for riders who like the rough stuff but aren't into the big jumps. Don't think I have the confidence for things like that any more, now 25 years ago....I was jumping bikes off of everything and over my mates who I have to say were very brave (or stupid).
I would love to try the North Shore style board walks so may have a ride up there sometime anyway.

Also, on their website, they say that you must have insurance and mention that it can be through your cycling federation. But that's for a separate post I think.

Cheers all.

I haven't seen the place, but I've obviously heard of it, and had a look at the website. Their first few youtube vids were pretty crummy actually (but you didn't here that from me).

I've seen their van a few times while riding in Anaga.

It looks like it's mainly for free-riders potdog. I'd be too scared to give it a go also.

Yes, lots of full face helmets and body armor in the promotional video, which makes me think that it is pretty hard core. But the guys from the El Medano bike shop seem to enjoy it and they are more XC types so there must be something for an All Mountain god such as myself :lol:

I think they're mostly locals that go. You could alwasy try asking in the Spanish forum... and wait a few months for a response! :-D

I have PM'ed one of the Spanish members who responded to say that it is aimed more at DH and Freeriders, but there are soft options to all of the jumps, so maybe worth a visit even for a 40 year old extreme XC demon like myself :-D

Who knows, maybe I can pick up a few more scabs to go with the ones on both forearms and my right calf that I picked up this Sunday :lol:

I met the 3 guys running bike park Tenerife a few weeks ago.
While I don't remember their faces, I sure remember their bikes: Iron horse full suspension. *drool*
