As soon as it was installed in 2010, Friesen Bike Park received many thrilled cyclists.The layout consists of a Park with more than a dozen modules on the lower part of the site and a pump track located on the top of the slope. Two facilities to suit all levels from beginners to advanced practitioners.
Heimersdorf bike park has 41 jumps spread over 4 tracks with four different difficulty levels. The green trail has 11 jumps, the blue track 10 jumps, the red track 11 jumps and the black track 9 (large) jumps.
The bike park is intended for family use while providing a facility that satisfies teenagers wishing to progress via more difficult structures.
It consists of various wooden modules, variants and play areas on the tracks. The modelling of 400 tons of topsoil was needed to create a starting hill, jumps, banked turns, etc.
The work was entrusted to the companies E2S and Mountain Concept led by former high-level bikers.
