A new all-purpose bicycle park has risen from the devastation of flooding in northern Cedar Falls.

Tondro Pray Bike Park, named for two early land developers of the city and located at East Main Street and Logan Avenue, is up and running — or rolling.

“The bike park itself is part of the flood recovery plan,” said Brian Heath, public works and parks manager. It is built on land acquired by the city after the record flood of 2008.

It will offer different kinds of bicycling for several skill levels, including mountain biking; a “pump track” in which the cyclist uses the track’s rolling dips, turns and contours to maintain momentum without pedaling; a junior-skills cycling area; and a “cyclocross” track with different challenges for more experienced cyclists as well as a proposed “single track” path circling the park.
