BERLIN – Town officials this week approved plans for a bike event at Berlin Falls Park.
The town council voted unanimously to approve plans for Get Ramped, an afternoon of mountain biking and skateboarding. Officials were quick to voice their support of the Oct. 23 event.
“We’re very excited,” Berlin Mayor Gee Williams said. “This is one of the things we had in mind back when we were first talking about preserving this property.”
Organizer Tres Denk of the Eastern Shore International Mountain Bike Association says the free event, set for 2-5 p.m. on Oct. 23, will be similar to the ones he’s hosted in neighboring municipalities. His group and other area non-profit organizations will provide mountain bike instruction and helmet safety lessons. Ramps, donated by K-Coast, will also be set up for skateboarding and biking.
