Petitioning Prince William County Park authority

Change the rule at the new Veterans Skate Park to allow bicycles to ride.

The new skate park will not allow bike riding. 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 that will be permitted to use the skatepark. Bicycles do no more damage then any skate boards or others. 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. We will try and collect as many names as it takes to change this. Thanks...
