RideMKE has been established as a non-profit organization committed to the development of sustainable concrete skateparks within Milwaukee County. 100% of our efforts go directly to constructing FREE public skateparks within the Milwaukee community. Our plan is to organize a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) effort and build new structures as the money becomes available. We are always looking for more community involvement, so if you are looking to donate some of your time to help out please contact us.

First Proposed Street Element

So after watching the Atlanta DIY video that SkyHigh posted on FB, the idea of building a wedged manual pad with a smaller ledge and/or hubba ledge next to it started to look like a real good idea. This would also be a relatively easy piece to build and would allow for expansion/modification. Jeff Kay did these nice renderings of what something like this would look like (Thanks Jeff). I wanted to put this out there for all of you to have a look and give me your feedback on the design/ placement of this piece at the park. I stopped by the park on my lunch today and laid out the NE corner for the block wall we will have to build to retain everything, had a chance to talk to a couple people who were there at the time and they were really amped about something like this being built. 

Oh yeah, shirts will be here at the end of the week so make sure you have your $15 ready to pick yours up and don't forget to spread the word to all your friends about our efforts. We need everyone to come together to make this happen.
