how far do you go to get to a skatepark?
i sometimes ride 40kms to a skatepark for some good action,i dont do it often because there are a alot of good dirt jumps around here annd i also ride some street. up near the skatepark though there is a foam pit which is heavenly, and there are some wicked dirt jumps there aswell.

I got you beat there.

I don't know why he would have to ride 40k in Oz though. Seemed to me like there was a park on every corner, or next to every school. My youngest daughter already found the one closest to our house here, and she's claimed my Haro as her bike. Haven't decided yet if this is good or bad.

Shouldn't you be happy your kids like to ride though?

The closest park is 10 miles, but the skaters there are asses to anyone with a bike, and the one I usually ride is 25 miles away.

She's 13. I'm pretty sure she's in it for the boys.

I just got back from Jellystone(Warrens Wisconson) - 3 hour drive.

That's not bad though.

Mine local park would be about 5 miles (8km) away, and the woodland trail is right next to park, but i prefer trail as its muddy, speedy, extreme and fun. My park is so bul**hit as its so small. Well, that's life init?
