It’s been a long time in the making, but it’ll be worth the wait. Events are back and so is SkyPark Bike Fest 2021 Vol. 4!

We’re excited to announce the return of SkyPark Bike Fest the weekend of June 5th and 6th. Reserve your Day Passes in advance for $59 (ages 13+) and $49 (kids ages 4-12). Kids 3 and under and seniors 75+ receive complimentary park admission. And if you’re a SkyPark Passholder, this event is free! Be sure to make your Day Pass reservation early because guests will receive a complimentary Bike Fest t-shirt at the door (while supplies last). Whether you’re new to mountain biking or a seasoned rider, there’s something for everyone! Get your Day Passes here:

 

Bring your little shredders and start the weekend off with Arrow’s Balance Bike Races (sponsored by Prevelo) from 10AM-11:30AM on Saturday, June 5th and Sunday, June 6th. These races are designed for children ages 2 to 5 who want to show off their riding skills and compete in a friendly atmosphere with other balance bike riders.

Registration is included with paid admission and kids are welcome to come practice from 9AM-9:45AM. Each age group will also have time for 1 practice lap directly before their race begins. These races are quite possibly the cutest thing you’ll see at SkyPark, so be sure to cheer your little shredder along as they make their way around the track!

 

We’ll also be offering bike clinics with the pros, live music on St. Nick’s patio and raffle giveaways. Enjoy special buys and information from your favorite brands, so be sure to stop by their booths to hear about the latest in the industry!

ABOUT SKYPARK BIKE PARK

The mountain biking here at SkyPark is in a league of its own. Our trail network winds through a thick canopy of pine trees and sports several well-marked, directional mountain bike trails for the beginner to advanced rider. The bike trails take you through 10+ miles of dense Alpine forest, natural jumps, wall rides, ladder bridges and obstacles. Each trail is specifically designed to prepare you for the next, slightly more challenging one. And don’t forget, there’s always an easy way out if you’re not feeling it at any particular point. Soon enough, you’ll gain more confidence and ability as a rider with each lap! There are also 3 skills areas, a large and a small pump track and a Balance Trail for our youngest groms.

Our trails are groomed daily, the berms and jumps are perfect and our beautifully crafted wood features provide an exciting challenge. And if you don’t have a bike or just itching to try a different one, our Bike Shop offers demos on a first-come, first-served basis for both kids and adults.

 

SKYPARK ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES

Don’t forget that SkyPark’s favorite everyday activities are also included with the price of admission! Practice your skills at the Royal Games where you can join King Celwyn’s Ax Challenge or take your best shot in archery or the Northwoods Sharpshooter Gallery. You can even build strength on our climbing tower or bouldering room. Silver Bells Arena offers complimentary skate rentals so you can let the good times roll, and don’t forget about our Rock N’ Roll-themed Skate Night on Saturday, June 5th! And when it’s time to take a break, take the family to our outdoor Sky Pavilion to hear the Stories of the Northwoods and see our Puppet Show.
