Track and Trail Enhancements

Organization: Yukon BMX Parents and Riders Association

Year: 2008

Amount: 5000

Status: Project complete

Type: BMX

Address: Yukon BMX Track, Yukon, OK

A $5,000 grant is supporting the Yukon BMX Parents and Riders Association, in Yukon, Oklahoma, a suburb of Oklahoma City, as they work to resurface their track and build a mountain bike trail surrounding the BMX facility. These two improvements will help Yukon BMX support a growing number of young riders during peak times, and the singletrack trail will give kids who are interested in bicycling, but not necessarily in BMX, the chance to ride with their friends in a safe, off-road setting. This timely grant comes on the heels of Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett's challenge to his constituents to collectively lose one million pounds through healthy eating and active living.
