MTBPARKS.COM REVEALS YEAR'S BEST BIKE PARKS | Riders' Choice Awards highlight top-five lift-served mountain-bike resorts by region in North America

JACKSON, WY - MTBparks.com, the definitive online guide to North American bike parks, reveals the rider-voted Best Bike Parks of 2014. Crowning the top five resorts for lift-served mountain biking in eight geographic regions, the awards are based on the results of the second annual "Best Bike Parks Riders' Choice Awards" survey. 

More than 3,000 riders participated in the online survey, ranking bike parks in more than 20 categories ranging from "Best Base Area Amenities" to "Best Technical Trails," but in the end, it was the question "What is your favorite bike park?" that determined the top five bike parks in eight distinct regions: Western Canada, Eastern Canada, Northeast, Mid-Atlantic/Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, Northwest and the Rocky Mountains.

MTBparks.com launched the Riders’ Choice Awards in 2013 to recognize resorts contributing to the growth of mountain biking, and to offer riders user generated feedback on the best options for lift-served riding in their regions. 

"As resorts continue to embrace the growth of mountain biking during the summer months, the survey shines the light on bike parks that are setting an example for progression and accessibility," says MTBparks.com Founder, Michelle Good. "One of the great things about riding at a resort is that it's the perfect setting, whether you're trying mountain biking for the first time or you're an expert rider looking to challenge yourself."

Good created MTBparks.com in 2012 as a one-stop resource for riders after frustrations encountered when planning a riding trip across the Western United States due to sporadic and inconsistent information. Today, MTBparks.com continues to grow as a resource for riders, resorts and industry news, and allows users to submit content, photos, videos, events and reviews.  

MTBparks is also offering the MTBparks Pass for a second year in 2015. The first of its kind, the MTBparks Pass gives riders free lift tickets and a wide range of deals and discounts at a growing list of many of North America’s Best Bike Parks for one low price.
