WE TAKE IT FOR GRANTED. SOMETIMES IT’S EASY TO FORGET THAT YOUR BACKYARD IS A STATE PARK.
Exactly 0.6 miles from Onewheel HQ lies Natural Bridges State Park. It’s pristine sand and surf and epic natural arch attract lots of beach goers but to us, Natural Bridges is a satellite office, playground and most importantly, our primary testing facility.
The beauty of natural bridges lies in it’s riding diversity. On the surface, visitors are shuttled through by a half-mile stretch of pavement looping through the park. But roads are just a suggestion of course. It gets interesting when you start piecing together trails leading to and from the road. A single line could include dirt, rock, sand, pavement and plenty of hills to keep things interesting – the perfect Onewheel laboratory for strenuous testing.
Our favorite part? The zig-zagging wooden boardwalk intended for Monarch butterfly viewing during the fall. Zooming down the wood planks sounds like playing a washboard!
