    Not too far in the past when the Brick Skatepark opened, a concerned group of individuals approached the town council about having an area for bikes or letting bikes into the skatepark.
    As of now the rules have been relaxed to the point that bikes have an uneasy “ok” to ride in the local park.
    James Rempkowski at one point approached the council about having a BMX track in Brick, getting all the info from the aba and giving it to the township, who, of course, promptly did 0.
    But then again, that was a few years ago before this whole website and “movement” started.
    So Jim and I have decided to reinvest some time into this effort and attempt to get NJ’s first BMX practice track, i.e.: no sanction place to ride, going in Brick.
    This will require some effort from all the Brick locals, and there are quite a few, but nothing is impossible, you just have to make the politicians believe it is in their own best interest and in Brick, youth activities are a major interest.
    So, we will be finding out when council meetings are and will start hammering home the points, meeting after meeting and getting some sort of act together on this.
    BMX is covered under the same laws as skateboarding, and rollerblading, i.e.: it is an obvious dangerous activity and keeps the town our of major liability issues.
    If you can help and live in Brick, post here, pm me, or email and I’ll get you my number.

    I thought Bill already built a practice track behind his house. 😀 😀

    To be honest, no status, but since we all had the collective BFO (blinding flash of the obvious) about practice tracks, its been in my mind and I am curious to see how you and Jim (the guinea pigs) make out two weeks from now. Even though the ABA is not officially here, anything Bill Curtin might be able to throw our way? That would raise the ABA’s stock here a little. We all know how much help we’re gonna get from the NBL on this, even though they (at least as of now) will benefit in the long run from our efforts.


    I’m sure our status after that first meeting will be….
    But gimme like 5 or 6….and a year..and 20 kids…
    So…keep looking for updates, lol
