Syracuse, NY — Wheels are set to get into motion this weekend at CranX Bike and Sports Park in DeWitt.

The state-of-the-art recreation center is the first of its kind in the region and based on a unique concept limited to a handful of facilities in North America.

“We got our certificate of occupancy (from the town) and we will definitely be open Saturday,” said Seth Fischer, who, along with business partner Dale Cruce, created and operate CranX. “We’ve already added a lot of new stuff.”

CranX is parked in and around a 90,000-square-foot former warehouse at 6341 Thompson Road, across from the Verizon building and not far from Carrier Circle (as you’re facing the building, the entrance is on the side toward the back).

It’s designed to cater to a wide range of bike enthusiasts. It features a vast array of amenities to appeal to road bike, mountain bike and BMX bike enthusiasts.

The indoor and outdoor — three acres to be developed in the spring — park features a cross country track, freeride trails, jump trails, a road track, half pipe, foam pit and a street region. It’s sectioned into beginner, intermediate and expert areas.
