Who We Are
The 9th Street Locals have moved
thousands of tons of earth, shovel by shovel. 25 years ago
the park was flat ground. Now it is dotted with hundreds of
dirt mounds sculpted to perfect form. Countless hard working
people call 9th Street home. It has been built with pride
and back breaking manual labor.
As an un-icorporated
non-profit organization known as; "9th Street BMX", we
work with the City of Austin and Austin Parks.org to the
benefit of the park. If you get a chance to visit, please
take a moment watch how things work. Be friendly, talk to a
local rider. Please pick up your trash and have fun.
If you are unfamilair with BMX, we kindly provide tips and advice so
you may be charming at the trails.
OBSERVE. Watch what is going on. The
trails flow in a certain direction, don't go against the flow. Please stay out
of the way of other riders. You could get in someone's way and get hurt.
This is especially important for kids, parents,
& families. The nature of this sport is inherently dangerous. We
build jumps for riders of all sizes and skills. We watch out for kids and
rookies by providing advice and support.
Respect the hard work it took to build the place you are enjoying for free.
Respect the land. Be nice and friendly to others. Appreciate the years and years
of work it has taken to build 9th St. Respect the Locals. Respect those who dug
here before you.
CONTRIBUTE. We don't ask
that you dig or donate. However, if you spend alot of time at the trails we ask
that you give back to the thing you love. People who are always there when the
trails are running and never there when we are digging are called DRY GUYS.
Don't be a dry guy. There are other ways to show your trail support than with a
shovel. You can just tell us we are doing a good job, shake our hands, a pat on
