"You may have read today's Coloradoan cover story about a meeting for
public input to the City of Fort Collins Parks and Recreation Plan. It
is scheduled for this Thursday (June 12) at 5 PM at the Northside
Aztalan Community Center. The news article said the City had retained
a consultant (GreenPlay) who, through focus groups determined that
residents favored parks hosting community gatherings and large events.
We know a velodrome and cycling park could provide a venue for great
events and gatherings, and not just for cycling. With the weekly
growth of participation and attendance at the 6 Day Races at the CSU
Oval, it is a good time to remind parks planners that we need some
land for our facility. Not as much as golf, tennis, soccer, or
baseball facilities take of course, but some land is required. Legacy
Park has been eyed by our association as a possibility, and while it
has challenging aspects, it could be put to far better use by us than
it currently is.

This will be mostly Mountain Biking Events like X-country race, FreeStyle even and Slopestyle however the real gem for probably some cyclist is the Vail HC.

Short Track Round 1 Complete

News Item: 

My season opener is done. Short track did go to night unless you were an A rider. I raced the B's hoping they would start the single speed folks in the back but due to time limitations they could not. The field was medium, maybe 30 riders, but that made it hard because this short track course was short with very few chances to pass. The race went good, I keep Charlie Hays in eye sight and with 4 to go the rain started and with 3 to go they shorten it to 1 lap but I never made it back, the mud was so thick my bike stopped and so did everyone else.
