Golden Bike Park: Need your help!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The rumors and plans are becoming reality! The Golden Bike Park is very close with final plans with approvals coming up quickly. The Golden Bike Park development Team needs your assistance on a few matters; and its only a quick email away:

The Golden Bike Park is meant to appeal to everyone. We are planning to have several elements that include:
- Gravity fed flow trail
- Gravity fed jump trail
- Pump tracks (2 initially, one for smaller kids and one for bigger kids (adults))
- Cyclo-cross / XC loop
- DH skill trails
- Drop zone
- Dirt Jumps
- Progression & obstacle elements trail

All of these elements will be phased in over time, and our window for phase one approvals is getting very close.

How you can help:

1. Support
2. Maintenance crews
3. Trail construction

1. I would like to get your support. All you need to do is send me an email, stating your support of the park.

Please include:
- Your full name
- Your address, city, state
- Email address (this is for communication only, I WON'T SPAM YOU!!!)
- Telephone number (optional)


2. We are putting together a long term maintenance plan for Golden Parks & Rec's Dept. Because they have never maintained a facility like this, short term, we need your help with a maintenance plan. If you would like to volunteer some time, helping with trail maintenance and other bike park help, Please let me know in the email!!!
- State in the email: Please contact me for help with bike park maintenance.

- Our expectation is that we'll run a voluntary once a month (initially) crew to keep the dirt in the right places and make sure the trails are the way we want them.

3. Longer term, we'll be putting together new trail plans and Bike Park Idea's from you. We want this to be a place where everyone (XC, DH, DS, DJ, DS, FR, Cyclo-cross, kids, teenager, groms, wives, beginners to seasoned experts) can come and ride. In addition to your support, please realize that when you send your support for this park, that you may be a part of its longevity as this grows into something for everyone. Building trails can be a lot of fun, please let us know if you're interested in that as well.


So please, send me an email, with the above info (your name, addy) and let us know if you're interested in being a part of the trail crew (both routine maintenance and long term planning input).

Please send emails to: goldenbikepark@gmail.com

If you know people that would be interested, please forward this text and info to them!

Thank you for your support.

I chose the right time to pick up mountain biking. It seems good stuff has
been happening locally ever since I started

Looks like funding is already rolling in.



More info here: http://comba.org/node/101

"This project is gaining momentum, thanks in part to partnerships with IMBA Trail Solutions, Momentum Trail Concepts, DHM Design, and the City of Golden Parks & Recreation Advisory Board. Look for more information in coming weeks and months as we seek to officially garner final approval from city council (and solicit volunteers) in order to hopefully break ground next Spring. Stay tuned..."

Just got this in an email from COMBA
_____________________________________________

Golden Bike Park

On Tuesday, February 16th, we will be making a formal presentation to the City of Golden Parks and Recreation Advisory Board regarding the proposed Golden Bike Park. This is an open-house event, starting at 7 PM at the Golden Community Center. We are expecting opposition from local neighbors and are calling on supporters to attend- especially residents of Golden or nearby areas. This is the first step of two for the approval process, which we hope to have granted by month's end for early Spring groundbreaking. Please join us next Tuesday evening and let Golden know that this is a good idea!

Note: following the meeting park plans will be posted to www.GoldenBikePark.com (currently under development). As always, we appreciate your support. Interested in volunteering for build days or maintenance crews? Send a note to volunteer@comba.org with contact info.

Golden Bike Park supporters,

We are at the final point in getting the Golden Bike Park approved by the City of Golden. Thursday night (March 4th) the Golden City Council will make the final vote for the Bike Park. We need your support more than ever before.

The meeting will be held at Golden's City hall at 7pm, March 4th. Council will be voting on Resolution 2042; The Bike Park. Seating is limited, so we need everyone to show up between 6 & 6:15pm to ensure we have more supporters than opponents. Please signup to speak if you are in support of this park. The opposition will be pulling out all stops to kill this proposal.

Location:
Golden City Hall
911 10th Street
Golden, CO


After party celebration will be held at:

The Spot Bar & Grill
111 North Ruby Drive
Golden, CO

The Spot will have beers available for happy hour prices earlier for the bike park supporters (you).

We'll have a Golden Bike Park donation/tip jar. All proceeds will go to Comba for the support of the bike park.

Schedule: (March 4th)
6-6:15pm: Arrive at City Council chambers, City Hall
7pm: Start of Council meeting
~9pm: The Spot Bar and Grill (if the vote is in favor of the park)

The complete proposal: http://goldenco.granicus.com/MetaViewer.php?view_id=2&event_id=26&meta_id=16541
