Bikepark: To the next trail by conveyor belt
Many destinations expand their (summer) offers by bikeparks. Looking for the perfect climbing aid, many chose a Sunkid person conveyor belt.
A bikepark is a sports area for mountain bikers that is mostly meant for downhill sports (freeriding). Since these special bikes have only been constructed for riding downhill on them, cyclists need climbing aids to get up there.
Parents who want to introduce their children to freeriding will quickly face the problem that conventional bikeparks pose great risks to children. How can you safely take the step from regular cycling to freeriding? The solution is a bikepark with a Sunkid conveyor belt as a climbing aid. It creates a new offer for the destination's guests in which parents can share their time and their sport with their children.
They can get downhill in these special bikeparks on one of the slope trails at varying difficulties. In winter, skiing beginners may try out their first swings here on either side of the conveyor belt. The trails are not very steep and suitable both for beginners (starting at 3 years of age) and slightly advanced children. They can also be used by teens and adults who are just starting out on their first trail experience with a mountain bike.
The conveyor belt can be used for more than beginners' bikeparks. Bikepark operators in areas where the terrain generally is less steep also trust in this uncomplicated, perfectly weather and dirt resistant climbing aid that can span even a few hundred metres.
The conveyor belt is the first choice as a temporary climbing aid in bike events as well. With its modular build, it can use almost any available terrain without a lot of corrections. It is set up and taken down quickly and easily.
