FIRST CHAIR ALERT: Bryce Bike Park Opens May 16

BRYCE, VA – Bryce Bike Park opens this Saturday, May 16, for the summer of 2015. This two-time Top 5 winner in the Mid-Atlantic/Southeast region of the Riders' Choice Awards has fresh trail updates on tap and returns to the MTBparks Pass program with a free day for 2015.

Bryce partnered with Gravity Logic out of Whistler, BC, 402 Trails and Trek Bicycles in 2013 to bring adrenaline flowing gravity riding to Virginia. The brand-new custom designed bike park features seven lift-accessed trails with features unique to only Bryce Resort and cater to everyone from the beginner to advanced level rider.


Bryce Bike Park is a two-time Top Five winner in the Riders' Choice Best Bike Parks Awards for the Mid-Atlantic/Southeast Region.

Riders of all ages and capabilities can enjoy Bryce Bike Park becasue of a focus on the introduction of downhill mountain biking to all riders. Progression is a cornerstone of Bryce's trailbuilding philosophy, and each trail helps develop foundational skills and building blocks to conquer that next trail you want to shred. Bryce Bike Park offer trails for the very newest riders and trails to test even the most skilled riders.

Every weekend offers riders premium trail riding as well as great opportunities to meet new riders. If you have members of your family who aren't riders, we have them covered as well. Bryce Resort offers great alternatives while you are riding including a Zipline Tour, Summer Tubing Park and even its very own lake with a beach.

New for 2015


With the addition of a new amateur downhill trail for the 2014 season, Pickleback, riders have yet again been offered a supreme trail to build on skills gained from shredding Copperhead trail. Pickleback offer riders a variety of advanced features including a rock garden, 30-foot road gap, drops, step-ups, wall rides, table tops and one gnarly gap jump!

This year Bryce Bike Park will be swapping out older features with new features to add a bit of freshness to the park. Adding these new features will not only offer freshness to the park but help keep building rider skill. The park also plan to build some progressive drop features to help build necessary skill and confidence to hit drops safely and effectively. A new Skills Zone is being added to the meadow area of the park providing all ability levels a chance to try different features before attempting them on the big trails up top.

This will also provide a place for instructors to teach mountain bikers a wide range of skills to help each rider improve their riding.
The new Bryce Mountain Bike Park also includes a new learning center, teaching beginners proper riding techniques and giving advanced riders a chance to upgrade their style and performance. If you need a little gear to get rolling, a new bike retail and rental shop awaits riders too, featuring Trek bikes and all the pads and gear that you will need for a day on the hill.
