Credited as the birthplace of mountain biking, San Francisco bicycle enthusiasts have pushed hard to bring a bicycle park to the city to challenge both new and experienced bicyclists with a plan that would turn part of a 312 acre park into a dedicated haven for enthusiasts to practice their skills.

Leave it to San Francisco bike advocates to come up with a mountain bike park that would incorporate nature and extreme riding trails into an urban setting.

The Bay Area is the birthplace of mountain biking, yet San Francisco doesn't have a single bike park. A local group called San Francisco Urban Riders intends to change that.

SFUR is pushing to bring a bicycle skills park to a suitable location inside San Francisco's second-larger park, McLaren Park, which provides 312 acres of nature trails and recreational amenities.
