Portland’s Indoor Mecca of Bikes: the Lumberyard Bike Park

The first time I recall talking bikes with Will Heiberg of the Lumberyard Bike Park was at the Backyard Blam Pump Track. Like many Portlanders, he had dreams of a place to ride bikes when the weather turned sour. Turns out it was a vision he was unwilling to let go of, and teaming up […]
