    The Eagle cycle park

    What are your thoughts on http://www.idahovelopark.org/

    How much would you be willing to pay to ride the velodrome or any of the other options?

    I live across the street from the proposed site and utilize the small network of trails in the area. From what little I know of the project I think it's a good idea.

    Ain't a couple of people from here kinda involved with the project like designing some of the trails and stuff?

    From what I was told several months ago by someone affiliated with SWIMBA is that use of the place was suppose to be free on non-event days. BTW...a rep for the place attended a recent SWIMBA meeting I believe. Who knows.

    Also...I understand that the city of Eagle has already committed some $ to the project??

    Anyhoo....I have about a dozen or so donation envelopes that were given to me by Margie Rosenberg. For some odd reason you can't donate through the velodrome site or the Idaho Community Foundation site. So if you are interested in donating, please get a hold of me and I'll get you an envelope soon.

    I think it's a great thing. Who knows what the timeline is, but I think this would be a great addition to the valley's cycling scene. If this thing does come to fruition, I honestly don't know how much I would be able to utilize it since getting to/from Eagle for me isn't that easy since I live out in the 2C.

    Ian can answer most of your questions pertaining to this project. So far from what I've heard the dirt portion of this project will start first.

    Seams like the right thing to do as developing momentum for this project will require a ground breaking of some sort - a 4X course or even MTB short track course will be easier to install then a Velodrome.
