Event description

The 6th annual Bike Park Blowout will take place at the Castle Rock Bike Park on Saturday, September 16th. The event will run from approximately 9:30am to 1pm.  The Blowout will be handled by Growlers Gulch Racing, an affiliated group of NWTA.  A pump track, jump lines, and numerous skills stations will be available to riders of all ages.

The park was constructed by a group of mountain bikers affiliated with Growlers Gulch Racing. GGR solicited $25,000 in contributions to build the park and also relied heavily on recycled materials donated by the City of Castle Rock, Cowlitz PUD, and the Port of Longview.

Proper Cycle Werks will have mechanics on site to conduct safety checks and do minor bike repairs. Peace Health will provide helmet checks. Helmet and safety checks being at 9:30 with skills stations opening at 10.

North County Recreation Association will serve hotdogs and chips; the Castle Rock Baptist Church will provide water. Take Exit 48 and follow the signs to the park, which is on Dike Road, right along the Cowlitz River.

Directions:  Approximately 1 hour from Portland.  Heading north on I-5, take Exit 48. Turn left at the end of the ramp and follow the signs (we will have real clear signage up to get people there).
