Valmont Bike Park Work Day!

Valmont Clean-Up Day, May 9th

We are getting closer to construction for the Valmont Bike Park,
and we need your help!

When: Saturday May 9th, 2-6pm
Why: Site prep    
Time to begin site prep for the Valmont Bike Park!  We hope to begin construction over the summer, but first work needs to be done this spring. We will meet at the site at 2pm, Saturday May 9th, to get the ball rolling on construction.  The site has been neglected for years - there are downed fences, windblown debris, and invasive weeds that need to be removed. We are partnering with BMA for this Valmont Bike Park work day, but we also need your help. BMA work days are rewarding and a good chance to meet other like minded members of the community, so pitch in, it is cool to help out. 
We scheduled the clean up so you could ride in the morning, and help out in the afternoon.  After breaking into groups of ten, we will learn about the park while prepping the site for construction.  This is your first opportunity to see the plans on site, ask questions and help out.  We will provide the materials, just bring work gloves.   
We have to limit the number of volunteers to 60, and there has been a tremendous outpouring of offers to help.  Please click here to register; register early because once we reach 60 volunteers, we will respond that the event is full.    
The Valmont Bike Park will be a model civic bike project for years to come.  Come out, watch it unfold, be a part of it.
