Bedford Co., VA - Bike riders will soon have a place to practice their skills in Bedford County.
The Parks and Recreation Department is building a new progressive bike track near Falling Creek Park. The track has dirt humps, a pump track and obstacles for bikers to improve their skills.
Even if you are new to the sport, you can learn here as well.
"An area like this they can come practice number one getting used to riding off-road, but also riding skills they might need while they are on the trails," said Kenny Palmer, a Bedford County trails specialist.
The bike track opens in May. Officials also offer courses on mountain biking.
