    One has a no bicycles sign, and the other has a bunch of kids on dirt jumping rigs testing out their marshmellow forks by flying out of the quarter.

    Funny.

    I'd like to see it though. Dirt Jumping bikes are a new reality for me. I didn't know they existed till a few days ago.

    Yeah. Thanks for the update, Chief.

    The only difference between a "bikepark" and a "skatepark" is the first half of the word; they're the exact same thing.

    That's funny, because the Sunnyvale skatepark has a subbox. As did the old Milpitas Vans park, which originally didn't allow bikes.

    That park has 2' subbox coming off a bank, and the skaters use it all the time. The Vans park had a subbox off a quarter, and they used that more than the bikers did (because the quarter was only 3' tall).

    I find it hard to believe that you think that skaters can't use subboxes; hell, the backside of the vert quarter at Sunnyvale gets used for footplants all the time.

    The streets are the best guyz, skateparks and bikeparks are ohk but if u really enjoi riding manual gaps and drop offs are best. theres only so far u can push a jump, theres always something better to do on the streets

    All joking aside, theres a combination park here in West van called Gleneagles...

    Its got a 'bike park' with log rides, bridges, teeter totters etc for the MTB crew.
    ..its also got a section of dirt jumps in various sizes...
    ..and right beside that is a concrete skate park




    I have yet to take my BMX here though.
    There are so many other skateparks close by.
