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.
We ran a successful campaign through Indiegogo and along with some outside fundraising have currently raised a total of nearly $20,000 as of Dec 2017.
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
Mudslingers Bike Shop (Plano, IL)
Legacy Retirement Communities
Plus many more!
Here's a video we ran for our campaign explaining the need for this building in our state:
