Full Tour of Ray’s Indoor MTB Park Cleveland, Ohio
This place may look like an old warehouse from the outside, but its actually Ray’s Indoor Bike Park, an 120,000 square foot indoor playground for mountain bikers. Since this is one of our favorite places to visit when we’re in Ohio over the holidays, we thought we’d give you guys a quick tour. Ray’s has two full rooms just for novice mountain bikers, with small obstacles and painted routes to help you practice your bike handling skills. In the beginner room, you’ll find slightly larger, mountain bike oriented features, like this rock garden, that was actually fairly hard on a dirt jump bike. Behind the beginner section, you’ll find one of our favorite spots, the pump track. This is a really long pump track so it’s a great physical challenge, as well as just being really fun. Once you’ve mastered the obstacles in the beginner room, you’ll want to check out the “sport section” two whole rooms full of skinnies, teeter-totters, wooden ramps and even a bike elevator. Way more challenging than it sounds. We’d recommend checking out the “flow” section first as these features are a little more forgiving. When you do make it over to the “tech” side, make sure you look where you’re going so you don’t get surprised by that elevator. Nailed it? Yeah, buddy! Parallel to the sport section is one of my favorite lines at Ray’s, the “micro rhythm” line. This is a small jump line that’s really easy to lap over and over again. When you’re ready to move up to some bigger jumps, head to the “rhythm room”. This is another one of our favorite spots. Ray’s also has two whole rooms dedicated to skate park and BMX skills, this is another really fun place to hang out and practice skills. If you want to get some miles in, you can always ride a few laps of the green line. plus this will give you some perspective on just how HUGE this place is. For bigger jumps, head to the advanced jump line. or the jump room, where you can practice new tricks safely into the foam pit. We hope you enjoyed this quick tour of Rays.
