2 MAIN RULES:
 
 
1. Waiver must be signed by a legal guardian
 
 
 
2. Helmet must be warn at all times while on a bicycle (if you do not have a helmet we have ones you can borrow)
 
We are much more than a bmx playground, we also provide a family friendly atmosphere so that all kids can feel welcome no matter whatage, sex or skill level.We try to treat everyone who stops out like family this includes enjoying meals together on our back deck while enjoying the sun and watching the younger kids ride. We try to work with today's youth and when the opportunity presents itself, giving guidance to help better their lives in any way we can.

FEDEX SMALL BUSINESS GRANT CONTEST 

In 2015 we were one of the top ten businesses selected out of over 2500 as one of the "Fedex Small Business Grant Contest" winners for our efforts in the sport of BMX and in & around our community. We were and are very honored to hold that title.

NOWEAR TO RIDE

In 2016 we set forth on a mission to put up a Free, Indoor, and Heated building that could provide year-round access for riders to ride and/or train. This building would also have state of the art training equipment provided such as a gymnastics style foam pit for safely learning the bigger stunts.
 
 
 
Here's a video by local TV station and broadcaster Lance :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnoU9XeJEFk
 
 
 
We ran a successful campaign through Indiegogo and along with some outside fundraising have currently raised a total of nearly $47,000 as of Oct 2018.
 
 
This money has provided us the chance to start our mission and we are proud to say we have broken ground as of October 2017 and with the donated help of local talent we are stretching every donation dollar to the max.

HSP Construction has been an integral part in construction thus far and they have agreed to stay on and assist us throughout the project! Thank You HSP Construction!.
 
 
84 Lumber has been a huge contributor with lumber costs and needs, Josh Larson a local avid BMXer and contractor has been helping with all the excavation work and footings for the building thus far. With the combined efforts of local businesses and generous people in the community we are confident we are well on our way to making dreams come true for so many kids.
 
 
 
Thus far we have partnered with some great local buisnesses such as:
 
 

The Bike Rack Omaha & Lincoln, NE
Dairy Queen Lincoln, NE
The Cherry Hill Company 
Jensen Enterprises
Harrah's Electric
84 Lumber
HSP Construction
Mudslingers Bike Shop (Plano, IL)
Creation Screenprint
Legacy Retirement Communities 
Plus many more! 
 
Here's a video we ran for our campaign explaining the need for this building in our state:

LATEST UPDATED INFORMATION
 
 
 
 
Here are a couple of the stories of families we shared during our campaign showing the need for this in our area.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

WHEN WILL THE PROJECT BE FINISHED?

A great deal more volunteering and fundraising needs to be done now and in the near future to meet our goal of being done with our Project by winter of 2018.
 
 
 
Currently there are NO indoor parks in Nebraska where a bicycle is allowed indoors. The closest indoor facilities are several hours away in other states.
 
 
 
Help us make this year the last winter any BMX kid spends without a place to ride. It's so incredibly important for kids to stay active all year round.
 
 
 
This will be the 1st FREE INDOOR BMX riding/training park in the WORLD of it's kind. Let make history together!
