A hiking trail that has been abandoned has been revamped as a new biking trail in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a report said.

This serves as a “proof of demand” project to create new, accessible, and varied cycling options in Tulsa.

The park and trailhead are located at 2900 West 53rd Street, adjacent to the recently closed Remington Elementary building that now serves as the headquarters of Tulsa Bike Club. The club supports the development of the trails as well as new opportunities for cyclists of all levels.

“I feel confident that new cyclists, people learning to mountain bike, can come out here and safely learn,” Mike Wozniak, a co-founder of the Tulsa Bike Club, said.

With an investment of $85,000 from the Bernstein Foundation, a professional trail company was hired to enhance the trail first cleared out by volunteers five years ago. The main trail at Lubell Park is a 2.5-mile trail suitable for anyone who wants to go on easy to moderate mountain biking. The trail runs through the woods by Remington.

The trail will be accessible for mountain bikes that people with physical disabilities use. Wozniak aims to get more people interested in cycling at the new location in West Tulsa.

“We hope this is a great demonstration of how we can take advantage of our urban wilderness we haven’t utilized fully,” Wozniak said.

The club is currently working on a demonstration of this accessible trail in the hope of creating more repurposed bike trails.

Bike Club and Tulsa Parks will have a grand opening ceremony for the trail on Saturday (October 16) at 10 a.m.
