NW School of Freeride is a RealityAfter almost a year of digging and building and dreaming, the NW School of Freeride is a reality. Park honch Kris “Jaymo” Jamieson told us: “My partners Sam Pinner, Tim Windell and I have about 100 acres of pure, private and secluded, wooded NW forest just shy of Mt Hood. We have built a full-service off-road cycling school. Anything from XC and trail to BMX and freeride, as well ‘faux-urban-cement’ is available. Not to mention we border about ten zillion acres of BLM and National Forest land, but that is just a bonus.”

Jamieson notes that he wants the entire bike industry to benefit from the venue, and he is open to hosting jams, photo shoots, build parties, pros, and video shoots. According to Jamieson: “Our lodging and kitchen is quite nice and we are extremely kid friendly. If you can think of it, we can probably do it. We are one hour from Portland International Airport and want our venue to inspire and get people on bikes!”

NW School of Freeride has been working with the Diamondback Pro BMX team and many of the Dakine crew out of Hood River to develop BMX terrain. Phil Sundbaum helped design the dirt jump line. The venue also includes a 14,000 square foot indoor park with a foam pit. Ben Boyko has created some impressive lines—taking down some huge trees and turning them into some big drops.
