Pushing for Grass Valley Jumps

This afternoon, I made a very brief presentation to the Grass Valley Parks and Recreation Commission about implementing a bike skills facility on city property. This facility would be comprised of dirt jumps, a pump track, obstacles and more. Again, the commissioners were receptive and one mentioned her intention to check out the new bike skill facility in Folsom at Cummings Park. They asked a few questions about maintenance and security of such an area, but said nothing indicated that they are opposed to the project.

As is often the case with new trails, this will be a classic case of slow progress toward a fantastic final goal. I plan to remain persistent and continue to get our ducks in a row until opportunity presents itself. I am convinced that ultimately, Grass Valley will have a sweet bike skills park.
