After the experience of clearing brush and building a pump track almost completely solo, (and by hand, at that) I knew that mechanized tools would be required to create a private bike park in the backyard that would live up to the vision I have.
The plan all along has been to bring heavy machinery in to do the heavy lifting. However, as I’m currently on a budget while seeking a new full time position as a web design & marketing (hiring in the Portland area? Email me!), the decision was made to hold off until my friend Jeff and his company’s excavator was available.
That day has finally come. (oh snap!)
Big thanks to Jeff Lebo, my bro with the excavator & the operator. Couldn’t do it without ya. And Eddie Jones, for coming out and shoveling some dirt, and showing us how not to crash on the pump track. Ha!
More to come soon.
