Youth Unlimited Revolutions BMX Park Revitalization

15 May

Last weekend, Youth Unlimited Revolutions gathered the support of around 100 volunteers and worked to revitalize a BMX park that has been left un maintained for quite some time.  The project got the attention of the local councillor and a couple of trail building groups as well and will see an even bigger project happening in July with additional elements being added to the park.  After a bit of work, it was necessary for some of the youth to get out and test their work.  Here are some images and a timelapse of the day.

    Reblogged this on evolutionary catharsis: a blog by Archer Johnson and commented:
    This is a pretty awesome story! This a fantastic use of abandoned green space. What a collaborative effort from these youngsters, all taking part in creating a new space in which to express their passions. Often we think of expression in terms of traditional art but fail to recognize the creativity, soul, and dedication of athletic endeavors. Flowing through a rhythm section requires the rider to commit to being one with and feelthe bike in much the same way that a potter feels the form of the clay while at the spinning wheel. It is all about sensing, anticipating, and transitioning from that which is envisioned to that which is actualized. Sounds like art to me.
