    24-Hours of COS 2011

    24-Hours of Colorado Springs is happening on October 1 and 2, 2011. The race is USA Cycling Mountain Bike 24-Hour National Championships!

    24-Hours of COS

    USA Cycling National Championships - 2011 Race Schedule

    Race proceeds will proudly be donated to help assist families and soldiers of our military through support of The Wounded Warrior Project.

    *Racers and support should be prepared for a cool/cold night, however, the race course is very near to hotels, restaurants, gas stations, etc. Although schools will be in session, this could be a great chance for a mini-vacation for families and friends.

    *Expect lap times of 60mins for elite riders. The race course has moderate to challenging single track with several modest climbs and lots of flowing twisty fun. Solo racers can expect designated areas for support/camping. Teams (Duo and 4-Person) will have a transition and support area near the finish line, however, camping areas will be separate.

    *Camping rules must be followed, see website, but note that our climate is very dry, especially in Sept., Oct. Please plan for gas or charcoal grills, but no open flames, fire-pans...wood burning in general.

    On behalf of the amazing riding community of Colorado Springs, our growing list of sponsors, the City of Colorado Springs, and the mountain bike crazed state of Colorado; I would like to invite riders across America to join us in the ultimate test of endurance racing.

    Sincerely,
    Tim Scott-Race Director
    Tier One Productions

    I wouldn't rule out a wet Sept./Oct. We had 20" of snow in October 1997... And without a doubt the long night will be cold.

    Should be a great race worthy of a National Championship.

    Congrats Tim!

    Is this on for sure, given the cancellation of the road race that was supposed to be on the Academy next month?

    Yes, on for sure! At the Academy for sure, well now that I can't promise. It's a Department of Defense issue that, even if restrictions ease up, could change over night. We are working to ensure the race happens in our area no matter what. So, yes it is on for sure!!

    While the Academy is an obvious first choice, we have so many miles of great trails and some great venues that could be host of the race that I'm just absolutely fired up to show off this community's racing spirit and mountain bike pride!!

    Evidently the Academy strikes again--good on Tim for having lots of foresight and thinking this through just in case he lost the Academy venue.

    I read there's no campfires or alcohol. I understand the no campfires thing, but alcohol?? Come on...

    I hear there will be a mandatory stop to racing at 9:00am Sunday for a church service led by Focus on the Family...

    Ha, funny stuff...maybe you could be in charge of the church time, sounds like you're all for that sort of thing?!

    Last year there was a fire ban in the front range due to a huge fire in Boulder and extremely dry conditions...so the organizers followed up with the Academy Fire Dept., but we couldn't have wood/charcoal fires at the last minute. As for alcohol, it wasn't sold or provided or seemed to be an issue.

    Don't know what the plans are for this year, but hopefully you can have a beer iv when needed. oh, and prayer time especially for you.

    Sounds about right. Co Springs has so much potential to be a great town (good location, great trails, mountains close buy, nice climate, etc..) but it will never live up to it. The churchy's, military, and now no booze in parks just ruin it.

    There should be a way around some of the ordinances...special events are just that, "special" so what gives? If alcohol is allowed or properly sold at an event permitted to do so, then whats the big deal...no one is inviting neighbor children to ride a lap then suck down a cold one and send the poor lil dears into hyper-dehydration.

    Heck, the neighborhood kids are up there hiding in the rocks and having sex already(and have been for years, any graduate of a city HS will tell you if they are honest).

    Hmm, so now that weed is so acceptable, not, but whatever...I wonder, if there is no alcohol per No9-9-410, thanks for that random bit of trivia kchri, who knows that sort of thing anyway?!, then do you think they would prefer a dispensary? Okay, bad idea

    Besides, it's not like the "no booze in parks" thing is new, I heard ol'man General Palmer was pretty strict about the sauce (http://www.coloradovacation.com/hist...am-palmer.html). Maybe that's why the parks are dry.

    Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

    I wouldn't be to worried about getting busted in the park with your beer! The CSPD will not even come out there if your car gets broken into and your stuff gets stolen. They tell you to fill out an online report!! Now that's the way to "protect and serve" CSPD, F-ing joke! Drink it up.

    All's I know is there have been plenty a beers drank in that park even though the sign says no alcohol. I'd suspect they will have police at the barricades that will be closing the park during this event. However guarding every point of entry will be next to impossible.

    I'd keep an eye open for hikers with heavy packs

    I really think this is a great thing for the City of CS. It will showcase some of the great riding this town has and how a park that is so central in location can KICK ASS! The GoPP lawyer guy will fight this and try to have the event moved, he needs to hear the whole plan and see that if the city wants to hold this event there, he is **** out of luck on flexing his over paid degree and fees! The trails will see some much needed help from people working to get them race ready and whos knows, maybe some money might find it's way to the likes of Med Wheel to help with the park as a whole. The GoPP have some good people, but they also have some idiots, the park needs some trail help and its clear that the GoPP are not doing the job! When has the park seen some good trail work being done? Support this event and I promise that the park will be better from it!

    Unfortunately, there are several people who echo his biases on the City Parks Board, and especially TOPS board. Witness the recent actions of the F0RRP who decided to build stairs on Section 16.

    Considering his actions I'm tempted to write the Parks Board/City Council and request his resignation as head of the FoPP.

    Perhaps we need to start a petition? or a group signed letter? Anyone interested in signing?

    The article said the Parks Board was unanimous in their support. I think he is a lone wolf, but taking care of the park is something the organizers (Tim) and Park Dept. are sure to take seriously. For sure oranje23 is right on, the park needs this attention.

    I can't wait for this race. I was excited for last year, but this, now, in PPark...its got to be one of the greatest ideas ever. Anyone see the video interview with Cameron Chambers, SS Nat. Champ.?

    My comments are more big picture than a single race.

    Trust me. There are some very shrewd people on the Parks and TOPS boards and while they may have come out in public in support of it, you don't have to go very far to find out that they are wprking behind the scenes to make sure that it doesn't continue.

    Conservation Easements are a very effective tool for eliminating "competitive events" and "active use" recreation.


    Colorado Springs TOPS Minutes 5/4/11
    http://www.springsgov.com/Files/TOPS...S%205-4-11.pdf

    Discussion on Defining Passive Recreation Uses for TOPS Open Space Properties

    Ian Kalmanowitz introduced the guidelines that he, Linda Hodges, and Jackie Hilaire met to create for the definition of Passive Recreation uses for TOPS open space properties. A matrix using yes or no answers to 5 questions was created to determine whether a proposed activity or use is passive or not. The use is not defined as passive versus active recreation but as passive versus organized, competitive or mechanized recreation. If the answer to all five questions is no then the activity is permitted. If the answer to one or more of the questions is yes then the activity is not permitted. These are guidelines for staff to use in determining whether a requested permit for an event should be issued. These guidelines should not serve to limit individual use of open spaces (but the door has been opened and TOPS can modify it, or interpret it, to do so at a later date). Jackie Hilaire added that the subcommittee used the extensive previous discussion from 2009 to create this matrix as a starting point or a pilot process which may need to be adjusted in the future.

    Call to Action: Active vs. Passive use in TOPS parks redefined (again)

    The President of Friends of Palmer Park.

    I feel his comments are very uneducated and biased for someone in his position and do nothing for user group relations.

    Posted on the Gazette.

    Tom, if you're home from Italy, I hope you guys had a good trip. Second, you will find that I have completely the opposite view -- we will be busy trying to repair the damage the race causes. I just sent out a blast to the second half of the email list -- as President of GoPP, would you be so kind as to forward it to the first half? And as I said, would you give me 5 minutes on the agenda at the next Board meeting, to address this issue?

    What an unmitigated disaster for the park and for those of us who love and use it.

    "Unmitigated disaster"?

    Maybe you could rename the race:
    Nuclear Meltdown in Palmer Park?

    OK. I read that already. For some reason I thought you meant head of GOPP(I told you I'm slow)

    The only thing I find on FOPP is a facebook page From New Orleans. Is there a place I can read about them? So is the Pamp fella head of FOPP?

    No he is not the president, just a member who happens to be a lawyer. But I think he wants to be the president og GoPP some day.

    The GoPP website is http://www.gopalmerpark.org

    Agree or disagree with what they do, come out and help do some work on 7/23/11 and make sure they know you ride and support the event being held at Palmer. It is a group with good intentions just not enough involved bikers. Want any additional info PM me.

    Sorry UT and everyone it was late. FR is NOT the president and does not speak for all members of GoPP. He does think GoPP is to bike friendly and more needs to be done to control the "erosion machines".

    He may have a degree but he is far from educated.

    Please consider coming out on 7/23/11 @ 8-11am to help with some trail work. If you have any feed back please PM me with it.

    I still think they should rename the race Nuclear Meltdown.

    After 7 hrs in the saddle yesterday, I'm toast. Can't imagine what 24 would be like.

    mczen,

    Could you provide some additional details such as where to meet, anticipated work environment (picking up trash, bring a shovel, etc.), which trails are to be worked on, etc. I just spoke with Andy and we'll send the info out to the Sand Creek Sports contact list and hopefully get you some volunteers.

    cheers, matt

    Matt and Andy,

    Thank you for helping out. We will be meeting in the parking area off Maizeland & Academy at AM. Look for the RV and GoPP sign. All tools will be provided, so only bring personal items like a hat, sunscreen, water and work gloves,long pants may be a good idea but not necessary. I have several different sections to work on depending on the turnout. If you have a section you would like to see work on let me know. I will be heading out Tues or wed to start planning and you are more than welcome to join me.

    What time where you thinking about going over on Tues or Wed? Unfortunately I still have a day time job so I couldn't meet you there until late, say 6:30 PM either day unless you went over in the morning around 7 AM.

    What exactly does the military do to hold the town back? I'd like to hear your expert opinion.

    I live in COS and am not native, but my wife is. I find that most of the BS thrown it's way come from people who base their opinions off of one news story, but have rarely experienced or lived in the town.

    Ignorance is bliss I suppose. C Springs is a hell of a lot more diverse than Boulder, unless you deem diversity as rich white people acting like dropouts and creating zoning laws to keep everyone not like them out. The riding in the Springs sure beats the concrete bike paths in Denver. I don't really see any group holding this town back. Sure, the "church" types make the news, but the town is close to half a million now, and one label does not fit down here.

    .
    The percentage of agro military guys with buzzed hair cuts, bad tattoos, and loud military mouths is way too high. No thanks...

    I guess if you're married with kids and never leave your subdivision, it's probably not so bad.

    Been to C Springs plenty of times. Nice place to go ride and hang out with friends. Wouldn't want to stay there for long.

    And, what does "creeping on them" mean?

    JitteryWheel and all,

    Currently the projects are determined by GoPP and the park caretaker. I have been asked by the group to take over the duty of scheduling, planning, and directing the work done on the trails by GoPP. I have been involved with Medicine Wheel as a crew leader and other trail groups for several years and have taken several courses thru VOC and IMBA as well as get out and do the work several times a month. My plans include getting Medicine Wheel involved, city parks dept, and only using IMBA construction practices for work done. I will be happy to answer any question, address any concerns and listen to any ideas you have. Please feel free to PM me.

    Please consider coming out and working with GoPP on any of their work days. Check their website, go plamerpark.org for information. The next day is 7/23/11 8am till 11am

    Thanks,
    Brian

    I think your view is very myopic, but you are entitled to your opinion regardless. One man's paradise is another man's ghetto.

    I ride in the park on a regular basis, two to three times a week, and it seems that the trails are constantly being modified. I am glad to hear that someone who has been through VOC and IMBA is going to be heading up the work. Medicine Wheel is a good name to have associated with the trail work too. I have to say that my opinion of GoPP at this point is very low. They appear to be a group that feels entitled to make changes, at anytime their members wish, to the park trails. It is a City park and not a GoPP park. I hope that you have a positive influence on how the members perform trail work from here on out.
    According to the GoPP website the last work day was held on the 18th of June. There is no information about anything on the GoPP website for August or September.

    People that are associated with GoPP, like Frederic R. Pamp and Clara McKenna, and their comments on the Gazette really do not make cyclists feel very welcome. It appears like they would rather exclude uses for the park that they do not agree with.

    I do have the links to the Gazette article and the GoPP site but cannot post them yet. I do not have enough posts. Stupid rule MTBR.

    Any ideas on what the 24 route would look like at PP? I'll admit as a local guy, I rarely ride it at all...

    Hopefully headed out to Palmer Park for a spin this evening. I saw a video about the course on a website recently, but no specifics...13+miles of ouch I think. It will be a sufferfest of short climbs, bumps, small drops, tight turns, wide trails, then sandy spots, a few switchbacks, some horse poo...then do it all again...at least that's what most rides in PPark are like when I ride.

    TRAIL WORK
    I've noticed the changes and work done, but not since the most recent work day. MCZEN and crew have been doing a pretty good job, though sometimes I'm not ready for the changes as I come around a corner. Still, it is awesome to have some organizers and people involved in keeping the trails more sustainable for all users. I think people really love this park for all sort of reasons, so the attention is well deserved and needed!!

    Rock on
