Mountain biking can be good clean fun when done on trails designed for the purpose. There are no such trails in Cesar Chavez Park. No activity tears up dirt trails for walking and hiking like mountain biking, and weekend warriors on dirt bikes can put walkers in fear of injury from collisions. There’s a club based in El Cerrito specifically formed to stop dirt biking in public parks.
It’s hard to imagine that this gang of destructive morons on big-ticket XC bikes are connected with any of the organized mountain bike clubs in the area. The singletracks.com local mountain bike trail map does not show any trails in Chavez Park."
If repeated, the Conservancy may ask citizens to lobby Berkeley City Council for an ordinance to ban off-pavement riding in the park.
Chavez Park is a 90 acre preserve by the Berkeley Marina.
