Let me take a stab at a translation:

One day, I was taking an alternate route to avoid paying the new toll on the Port Mann bridge. During this trip I happened to notice that the Coverdale Athletic Park has a bmx/bike park!

For more information and exact location, click here:

I have not yet explored further, but I am excited, because now I know of three places to enjoy yourself on a bicycle in Surrey!

Send me (him) a personal message to learn about additional locations, like Invergarry bike park (near 148 Ave)! He will give detailed and accurate (no doubt) descriptions to the surrey bike parks can also be found here:

Are you talking about the Cloverdale Athletic park?

It's at 6410 168 St and has some cool riding. We used to go there often when I lived in white rock.

The pump track is behind the little park in the pic, but it's in shambles as they haven't maintained it in a while. All in all it's a fun place, plus they have a concrete wave that rides really well.

Imho, it's a worthy place to blow a couple hours after work on a sunny evening.

Birdland has Invergarry which is really cool. That place used to be sketchy as fuck, until the SORCE put time into it. It's a fun ride!

Thanks to the hard work of my Off The Edge co-workers Gary J,Scotty B, and the 2012/13 Capilano University Mountain Bike Operations students Sechelt has a brand new pump track. The District of Sechelt donated the land, Salish Soils donated the dirt,Sechelt Indian Band donated the trucking and Hemstreet contracting donated the machines and talented operators to make a new killer spot to shred. Many locals showed up to lend a shovel and put on the finishing touches on the track.

Can't wait for my busted ribs to heal so i can get out there and scralp some berms. Uber proud of yet another amazing bike community project here on the SSC.

The one at 156 and 105 next to freeway ive dug for 30 hrs trying to buff it.
Its a real lung burner lots of real estate located around a sub division of new and old housing so it may not last ,try to check it out.Lots of up tight residents do not want you to park or dig/ride there.
Built by Sorce its called 604 pumptrack.
Bmx rolls best through the massive rollers,but a nice little hard tail with 80 mm suspension charges. My best time around is 24 seconds I have installed drainage pipes and trying to fix the west side chicane.When it drys out a bit this should run hot.

Technically 604 is not affiliated with SORCE it was built by myself and my friend Derek under the banner of dirt west. The track would run perfect if the shicane on the west side (put there by others) was reverted back to just being a roller it was much faster that way.

The exciting news is that alpine bike parks is going to be doing a bunch of work at invergarry bike park this spring.

As for clover dale I am currently trying to get the guys from earth ramps to tune that one up. The city of surrey is also kindly providing me a day with a machine at port kells as well.

Needless to say its going to be a deadly year to jam out on a hard tail in surrey.

Cheers,

Such a great pump track!
I spent a couple hours there yesterday with a buddy. Me on my Sanchez, and him riding his BMX. The pt is buff, and so fast. We swept some marbles off the burms and had a blast. The last time I was out there, it was far from completion but it looks like all the effort paid off.

Well done!

I've been to 604 a few times this year with my kid and our bmx's. Super fun, and we always had the place to ourselves. Good times and thanks to the builders!!
