    Good job! Golden Bike Park update

    okay, the GBP cre has killed it the last two days, making a lot of progress on the lower Flow Trail... nice work-- shea, nathan, taylor, casey, and friends.

    at this rate, we may be able to start the Skillz Area next week...
    to that end, if you are available to help *during the week, during the day* next week please shoot me a note.

    Sorry, we're a ways off for being open. Whereas the flagship trail is being completed, we still have a lot of work to do.

    That's cool. Thanks for the update. I might try and swing by and check it out and grab a shovel or something to keep things moving.

    So we got the flow trail complete today. There will be fine tuning, but we're done! We installed the green trail with some really fun turns, complete with a double radius berm (its an odd feature that works). The skills area will have dirt moved in it over the next week. We may be calling for volunteers the 2nd weekend in July.

    not just yet... but soon.

    we may try to sneak in one more volunteer day for some finish work, at which time you could bring your bike, you know, to test out the work you did.

    otherwise technically all trails are closed until park is officially open.

    thanks for your patience.
