Turkey Mountain Dirt Jumps and Pump Track

Posted on Jun 10, 2011

The FROFLO and the new Downhill trail out at Turkey Mountain are not the only things getting attention out there. The Dirt jumps are running great and the lines are getting bigger and longer every week. We also added a new pump track as the latest addition. It is ridable as is but still needs a few small tweaks and lots of water and riding to get it really burned in good. Get out and ride!

Here are some photos of dirts jumps and the last two photos are of the pump track.

The FroFlow - New Freeride trail at Turkey Mt, Tulsa OK

Posted on Apr 23, 2011

Thanks to cooperation with the Tulsa River Parks The FRO crew recently knocked out an enormous amount of work in two day to create on sick trail at Turkey Mt. We have named it the FroFlow. This trail is a first of it's kind at Turkey Mt. and offers something for everyone. There is a drop, jumps and berms. The trail was designed for all riders of all skill levels. All jumps can be rolled and the drop has and easy "go-around".

The success of the FroFlow as a trail and the example FRO has set as a organization willing to put in the hard work, has sparked an interest for our type of riding within the River Parks. We have already been given the green light to add more trails to the area. Within the next month we will have another large build day to add a new longer downhill trail and add additional dirt jumps for all skill levels.

Road Trip - Heading South Feb. 5th & 6th

Posted on Dec 28, 2010

Get ready to ride! We are gonna head out for two days of Dirt Jumping with a little freeride mixed in. The current plan is to head out of Tulsa Saturday morning and head down to Marietta, OK to ride at Allen's place. Allen's has all kinds of terrain to ride and they are super cool hosts. Then we plan on stopping my a super secret set of trails, so secret I am going to stop talking about them. Last stop of the trip will be meeting up with some TX boys in Dallas at The Mound. The mound has some nice dirt jumps and some really fun freeride/DH trails. Everyone is welcome and we would love to drive down with a big group.

Tulsa Dirt Jumps - Turkey Mt.

Posted on Dec 27, 2010

Tulsa Dirt Jumps

A while back the long-lived Riverside dirt jumps were dozed to make way for a construction project along the river. While this outraged many Tulsa Dirt Jumpers and locals, at least the River Parks did not just say "too bad" to us. After taking down the jumps the Riverparks contacted a few of us to express thier willingness to give us a new spot to dig and ride on the Turkey Mountain Property. It took a while for the digging to really get going but there is finally an intrest and the area is growing quick. There are jumps for all skill levels from a table top line to Giant Doubles.

The area has a ton of potential, we just need people to come out and start digging and riding. We hope to have lines with several options, hips and transfers. We are also trying work with the Riverparks on getting us water access. We now have access to a water spigot near the jumps! Usually spots like this are strictly regulated as to what can be built. We have been giving free reign to dig as long as we don't cut down trees and we stay within the boundaries of the land provided. Just use common sense if you want to build something new, make sure it does not kill the flow for another line. The best way to see what we are currently working on, or what future plans we have is to check out the forum.

What is it?
