About

9th Street BMX. For the past 25 years, the South side of Duncan Park has been used as a BMX bicycle Jumping/Trail spot. It has been hand built by the local riders with very minimal involvement from the City of Austin and absolutely zero compensation. This is the official website of the 9th Street Locals.

9th Street; as it is called by the locals, is an ongoing community cooperative work project. A completely self organized and self directed movement. Non-profit and non-discriminatory. An internationally recognized BMX monument.

9th Street has helped shape Austin into the BMX mecca it is today. It has a very positive financial and economic impact on the local community. Created from free labor by good samaritans. 9th Street creates a unique, hand-built, BMX paradise for all ages to enjoy. Keeping Austin Weird.

Who We Are

9th Street Locals 2014

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.

Trail Ettiquette

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. 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 the back.
