For those of you living in and around Boulder Colorado, there's some big news....
Valmont Bike Park was unanimously approved by city council this past tuesday!!
For crossers, this is huge because the park is going to be designed with permanent cyclocross features and trails for training and racing.
The bike park portion of the site will be aprox 25+ acres and has some good topography to work with....which means there are a few hills i'm not looking forward to running up.

Top level trail designers and landscape architects will be chosen this fall and construction could start next spring. Attached is a quick glimpse at the concept rendering.
more to come soon!

The bike park will be on the north side of Valmont Road, up closer to the airport. The existing park is on the south side and it's planning to be enhanced as well...disk golf, ball fields, etc.
If anyone is interested, there will be a chance to donate to the park and get your name permanently marked at the site. more details to come soon...

how could a hippieinflipflops be allowed out of boulder?
though there were restrictions on exporting exotic animals?

*i do beleive they are permited to roam up to nederland, and as well for special events like shows... head to denver.

Awful Idea - Not Good - Too many getting hurt!

Has anyone taken into account that it is right next to the City/County Jail and what impact does this have on the neighbors? Does the city or county or anyone care?
The impact has not been thought through!

First off, welecome to the forum.
Second, you ask if anyone cared about the impact to the neighbors or the jail proximity. There were several community meetings on the topic and i'd guess substiantial research done to look into it's impacts. We're talking about boulder here. You can't cross the street without doing an impact study. Why are you flaming saying it's not though through? Have you asked anyone or just shooting off your mouth?

//FWIW there will always be NIMBYs who oppose even the best thought out development.

cocoboots- I hope you have a shower at work or your co-workers will love you for it

Pablo- I sold my CX bike last year but am working on the family CFO to put together another one in time for the season. There are some great Wed morning CX rides once you move here.

I already live in Strongmont and my last day at the court is tomorrow.

Maybe I'll throw some cross tires on my 29er and crush the Boulderites.
