The planning process for the Swiss Bike Park Oberried took eleven years, but it was time well spent – the result is great. The park, about 40 minutes from Bern by bike or 20 by car, caters to everyone: visitors of all ages and skill levels can try out the many trails and tracks and have fun in the large park. The most important aspects are having a great experience and learning new skills.
Jump lines, pump tracks, stairs, berms, educational and fun trails: on some 2000 square metres, the Swiss Bike Park has everyone’s needs covered, from amateurs to top athletes. The park also includes wide trails, a track for specialised bikes and a panoramic route around Oberried, enabling a barrier-free access for everyone. Visiting the park is free.
By the way: the Swiss Bike Park also has a scientific purpose. The bikers’ experiences provide important insight and findings that can be used for training, science and traffic safety. Digital measuring devices and cameras will be added to the Swiss Bike Park and a service building will be constructed by spring 2021.
