The Rock Sports Complex
Milwaukee Bike Park at the Rock – Franklin, WI
BMX Races, Mountain Bike Trail Riding and Chair Lift Downhill Gravity Biking
If you’ve been jonesing for some fresh riding in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area, you’ve found it. The Rock has everything from an Olympics caliber BMX track to gravity-fueled downhill runs -- with miles of cross-country trails and skills practice areas for good measure. All crafted by the top design teams in the world. We’re bike savvy, family-friendly and ready to help take your riding to new levels.
Moms and Dads--why not bring the kids out and introduce them, and yourselves, to the exhilarating sport of downhill mountain biking? Our rental fleet has bikes for everyone from six-year-olds to adults, as well as helmets, gloves and padding to help keep everyone safe. We even offer coached lessons to get beginners up to speed with downhill bike handling skills. If your little grommets are already flying off curbs and ramps on their BMX bikes, they’re ideal candidates for The Rock’s BMX race series.
Our chairlift takes a lot of the grinding and grunting out of downhilling, but if pedaling uphill is your thing you can opt for a reduced rate no-lift access pass and climb to your heart’s content. We’re adjacent to the Alpha Trail in Whitnall Park, so you can add a loop there to get in more miles. And for cross-country greyhounds looking to put their mettle to the pedal, our Wednesday night XC Challenge race series runs all summer.
After a day on the dirt, sit back and relax on the outdoor patio at the Umbrella Bar while you watch a ball game on one of the baseball fields below. Or grab an adult beverage and a snack at Tap Works, our beer and wine tasting saloon. Everything tastes better after a day of riding, and besides—you’ve earned it.
No matter what kind of off-road biking you’re into, c’mon out and give The Rock a spin!
