Well, if you haven't made it out to Cranx by now, it's too late. After nearly six years of serving the Syracuse cycling community, Cranx closed their doors, and U Haul will be taking over the building. This indoor park offered sections for both new and tenured riders, from cross country to BMX, there was something to do for everyone. It was even just last year when outdoor dirt jumps were introduced.
Trish, Dezzi and I, decided to take a 2-day last minute trip together from Canada, to ride the park at least one more time before they closed this past weekend. The owner Dale, super nice, had a big smile for us like always.
For BMX, Cranx had everything for every style of rider - street, park, race, you name it... On the bright side, let's look at this park as just the beginning of something better, as rumors are swirling that a new location in the area in the works, and we can only assume it will be bigger and better than the original Cranx. Best of luck to Dale and Seth, we hope to see Cranx 2.0 soon :)
