BMX / Skatepark
Skateboards have been around as long as roller skates. Nearly 100 years ago, young people nailed roller skates to boards and rode them. Sometimes they sat on the boards and sometimes they stood up. Factory-made skateboards showed up in the 1960’s but really started taking off in the 1970’s with the manufacture of urethane wheels. Urethane wheels were much softer than clay wheels and gripped the road better. But there were still concerns about skateboarding. Drivers were concerned about skaters getting hit by cars. People on sidewalks worried about getting hit by skaters. Some towns even passed laws against skateboarding.
Here at Rocky’s Bicycle Shop we have solved all of those concerns. We have a Skate Park that welcomes skateboarders, in line skaters, free style bikers, BMXers, and freestyle scooter riders to come ride the half pipes and the array of ramps on the street course or enjoy the thrill of riding our soon to reopen sanctioned USA BMX dirt race track. Our shop carries an extensive selection of free style and BMX bikes, scooters, and skateboards with a selection of decks, trucks, wheels, and BMX parts and accessories. We custom build BMX, race bikes, and wheels. We also build motocross wheels.
We are open 7 days a week, except holidays, 10 AM to 6 PM Monday thru Saturday and 12 noon to 6 PM on Sundays.
