    Valmont Bike Park

    From the newsletter going out today:


    THE VALMONT BIKEPARK PROJECT
    A World-Class Cycling Facility
    Planned by the Community
    Built by the Best in the World

    Buy a Brick by August 21 and Make That Money Multiply

    The meetings are done. The approval from City Council was unanimous. It's time to create a place like no other. And we will all help make it happen.

    Actually, work has already begun. A design team of Parks and Rec Staff, BMA reps, and local landscape architects to select a Dream Team of trail building specialists to build the bike specific features of the park.

    What are we talking about?
    A UCI World Championship Cyclocross Race Course
    A BMX Jump Course
    A Pump Track
    Mountain Bike Skills Course
    Four Cross Track
    Singletrack Trails
    Progressive Challenge - For the Entire Family!
    We need the cycling community to step up and show their support via a "Buy a Brick" campaign that will help build the special features of this park.

    Buy a Brick and Help Build It!

    Today we kick off a fundraising campaign that will help us generate even more money through a grant from Great Outdoors Colorado. Grant applications that have strong community support score higher in the selection process. We are applying for a $200,000 grant! Your donation helps us win that grant!

    The City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Foundation and BMA (Boulder Mountainbike Alliance) are partnering to build the Valmont Bike Park. We like to call it 40 acres of bliss. We have big plans for the park- a place to ride, teach, learn, race and advocate. You will be impressed with the vision.

    Your donation is tax deductible (501c3#84-0725860) and will be allocated to the Valmont Bike Park, not the general parks fund, nor BMA. Be part of it, or at least come out and ride when it is done. The Park will be free and open to users of all ages and abilities. You will be greeted with the most progressive bike park ever built and of course, lots of ear to ear grins…

    Contribution Options:
    $25 Valmont Supporter- Keep me in the loop!
    $50 Fat Tire Society- Single track in Boulder? Sign me up!
    $100 SwitchBack Member- Engraved Individual Brick* (includes 1 year BMA individual membership)
    $250 CycloCross Founder– Engraved Medium Brick* (includes 1 year BMA individual membership)
    $500 Big Ring Society– Engraved Large Brick* (includes 1 year BMA individual membership)
    $1,000 Top of the Podium– Engraved XL Brick* (with your company logo or a personalized message and 1 year BMA individual membership)
    Other - Fill in a random amount you would like to contribute.
    We have lofty goals for permanent structures to enhance the park experience. If you or your company wants to be more involved, we are looking for donations to construct the following.
    Podium $2,500
    Belgian Run-Up $5,000
    Pump Track $25,000
    Event Registration Shelter $25,000
    Tot Lot Play Ground $50,000
    Platt Farm House Restoration $200,000
    Brick Details:

    If you purchase a brick, you will enter your name as text to be engraved on the brick. If you like you may keep your donation anonymous. Only the $1,000 bricks may have corporate messages and/or logos. We reserve the right to refuse text deemed inappropriate.

    Brick details are conceptual. Final park design is not yet complete. Donors may alternatively be honored at the park with their name on an engraved cobble, etched in a sandstone wall, or other recognition consistent with “Bricks” and final park design.

    Individual Brick

    2 lines per brick
    up to 16 spaces per line
    Medium Brick

    4 lines per brick
    up to 16 spaces per line
    Large Brick

    6 lines per brick
    up to 16 spaces per line
    Corporate Brick/XL

    8 lines per brick
    up to 16 spaces per line OR
    Let us contact you to arrange to add your company logo or personalized message.

    NOTE: Punctuation and spaces count as characters. All text will be one size font, all capitals, and centered.

    To buy a brick: http://bma-mtb.org/valmontbikepark/vbpsupport.php

    To contact Bobby Noyes, BMA Valmont Project Director: bobby@rockymounts.com

    Ask your employer to join in this effort, maybe they will match your contribution and more.

    Everything about this facility is going to be top notch, if it doesn't, we'll throw it over the fence and tell them to get it right.

    We have an agency that is enthusiastic, the full support of City Council, and a cycling community that is second to none.

    This is going to be fun. This is not the case where, "I'll let the other guy cover this." If you live in the Boulder vicinity, you need to step up and represent.

    Today we start the process of building a cycling facility that will be second to none.

    I certainly want a piece of that.
