About Ruby Hill Bike Park
The Ruby Hill Bike Park is a regional amenity located within the City and County of Denver along the South Platte River. The park’s natural topography with more than fifty feet of elevation difference between the top and bottom of the bike park provide a great riding experience as well as views of the city skyline. The bike park will provide a family-friendly environment where riders of all skill levels can come and practice biking skills. The bike park is designed with a series of trails and features of varying size and difficulty that allow novice to experienced riders to develop skills and confidence as they progress through the unique challenges of each of the trails and features. The following features are incorporated into the bike park:
- Small and Large Pump Track: Designed to teach riders how to use their momentum and body movement to ride the track without pedaling
- Skills Course: Designed to teach basic bike handling skills and balance that would be used on a trail ride or on more advanced features found in the park; including rock causeways, ladder bridges, and banked turns
- Dirt Jumps: Allow users to practice jumping skills starting with novice jumps and progressing up to advanced jumps
- Slope Style Course: Consists of novice to expert lines (including a special ‘professional’ line) featuring a series of fabricated ramps and wall rides, berms, rollers, table top jumps, and a return trail with observation areas throughout the park
In addition to the grand opening ceremony on July 23, there will also be a formal ribbon-cutting media event with the Mayor on July 21 at 10:30am.
