Allow Bikes into Charlotte Public Skatepark
- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Parks and Rec.
- United States of America
This patition is directed towards the access of BMX bikes into the new proposed charlotte skatepark.
We, the undersigned, as residents of Charlotte North Carolina Aeria, support the use of BMX bicycles in the aforementioned skatepark.
It is a common misconception that BMX bicycles in skateparks create a dangerous environment. BMX bicycles are equipped with brakes and are highly maneuverable, making them at least as safe as the skateboards and/or inline skates already permitted to use the skatepark. Many cities around the country already recognize this by permitting BMX bicycles into publicly-funded skateparks, where they coexist with other skatepark users. Countless private skateparks already demonstrate that any and all skatepark designs are compatible with BMX bicycles.
For all of the above reasons and more, we, the undersigned, recognize the need for equal treatment for BMX riders, that they may have a safe and legal area to enjoy their sport.
