Bellingham Dirt Bike Jump Park
Arne Hanna Aquatic Center Bellingham WashingtonDirt Bike Jumping At Bellingham's Dirt Bike Jump Park
The Bellingham Dirt Bike Jump Park, located next to the Skateboard Park on Puget Street has recently been renovated to address drainage issues and give bike daredevils new jumps and thrills.

Some of the changes have also been made to make it easier for beginners with novice slopes and jumps. In fact, half of the park is now dedicated to beginners and small frys just learning to ride and jump with little 2 foot jumps while the advanced portions of the park have jumps up to seven feet!

Dirt Bike Jumping Has Evolved Into A Sport With Its Own Moves And Jumps - Non Dirt Jumpers Almost Need A Dictionary To Understand What Goes On At A Dirt Bike Jump Park. A few common moves are:

ET - Is during a jump, pedaling in mid-air much like the famous scene from the ET movie when the kid goes flying with the alien in his basket
360 - Is spinning yourself and bike in mid-air a full 360 degrees before landing in your original position.
Front Flip / Back Flip - Is pretty self explanatory but it gives no clue of just how difficult a maneuver this can be.
Dangler - While airborne you take both hands off the handlebars and have one foot on one pedal.
Superman - While airborne put feet back in the air and hold on to the handlebars like you are flying like Superman
Canonball - While in mid-air of course, you take your feet off the pedals and then grab your seat with both hands

Mountain Bike Dirt Bike Jumping Can Be Dangerous But Wearing Protection Can Help Limit Your Potential InjuriesThese maneuvers and many more variations on the theme all seem crazy, difficult, and dangerous however once mastered, avid dirt jumpers make it look simple and easy. Always wear knee, elbow and head protection while attempting to dirt jump. Experienced jumpers will tell you, even with protection injuries are common including fractured wrists broken ribs and concussions. 

Other places of interest in the Bellingham Civic Field complex are the Downer Softball Fields - Joe Martin Baseball Stadium, and the Frank Geri Softball Fields.
