I was under the impression that the new tracks and skills area were to start construction early this past summer. What the heck happened to that? It would be great to have that all in place before the Midwest MTB summit!
Ken- we ended up doing site improvements first. All of the fence is gone, which really change the look of the place.
We have a prelim design for most everything and that goes to the Parks Director for approval. There are some tweaks that mostly involve footprint, but I want to get the design in soon, have permission, so that when the weather allows we can start building.
I can say that we think the pump track grew and incorporates a bigger area with more options. This opens up more trail in the woods and the ability to add additional technical trail features.
We are in the process of purchasing a large quantity of clay. We have also engaged a local construction firm to adopt-a-park. This company will demo the dugouts and move the dirt from one location to the park.
So nothing tangible built, but it is ok to ride bikes there on the social trails.
How about doing an "adopt-a-trail?" I know there isn't much to adopt, but if one business wold adopt the pump track, one for each loop of single track, etc, we could generate money to keep up and improve the park.
