The Golden Colorado Bike Park that we reported on awhile back is moving into motion. Here is some news that has been floating around the last few days...

Golden Bike Park: Need your help!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The rumors and plans are becoming reality! The Golden Bike Park is very close with final plans with approvals coming up quickly. The Golden Bike Park development Team needs your assistance on a few matters; and its only a quick email away:

The Golden Bike Park is meant to appeal to everyone. We are planning to have several elements that include:
-Gravity fed flow trail
-Gravity fed jump trail
-pump tracks (2 initially, one for smaller kids and one for bigger kids (adults))
-cyclo-cross / XC loop
-DH skill trails
-drop zone
-Dirt Jumps
-progression & obstacle elements trail

All of these elements will be phased in over time, and our window for phase one approvals is getting very close.

How you can help:

1. Support
2. maintenance crews
3. Trail construction

1. I would like to get your support. All you need to do is send me an email, stating your support of the park.
-please include
-your full name
-your address, city, state
-email address (this is for communication only, I WON'T SPAM YOU!!!)
-telephone number (optional)

2. We are putting together a long term maintenance plan for Golden Parks & Rec's Dept. Because they have never maintained a facility like this, short term, we need your help with a maintenance plan. If you would like to volunteer some time, helping with trail maintenance and other bike park help, Please let me know in the email!!!
-state in the email: Please contact me for help with bike park maintenance.

-our expectation is that we'll run a voluntary once a month (initially) crew to keep the dirt in the right places and make sure the trails are the way we want them.

3. Longer term, we'll be putting together new trail plans and Bike Park Idea's from you. We want this to be a place where everyone (XC, DH, DS, DJ, DS, FR, Cyclo-cross, kids, teenager, groms, wives, beginners to seasoned experts) can come and ride. In addition to your support, please realize that when you send your support for this park, that you may be a part of its longevity as this grows into something for everyone. Building trails can be a lot of fun, please let us know if you're interested in that as well.

So please, send me an email, with the above info (your name, addy) and let us know if you're interested in being a part of the trail crew (both routine maintenance and long term planning input).

Please send emails to: goldenbikepark@gmail.com
