Born on a Thursday #55 – More Bike Love in Flagstaff, AZ

Meanwhile, I am reposting this message from the Flagstaff Biking Organization. As many of you know I am a huge cycling fan. I don’t own a car and I bicycle to get just about everywhere—to work, to get groceries, to visit friends—and of course, for fun. Flagstaff Biking Organization has been planning a bike park that will be super cool, and they have a chance at winning a $30,000 Grant.

It’s been a long day and I just got back from meeting Justice of the Peace Howard Grodman who is running for re-election in Flagstaff (I really liked him and was very impressed – he started a Mental Health Specialty Court! so cool! – I will write about what I learned in the next day or so . . .)

ABOUT OUR TRAIL PROJECT

Fort Tuthill Bike Park will be a fully-featured mountain bike skills park at the Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff. The proposed skills park will contain a wide array of progressive features to appeal to all levels of bike riders. The park will be free, open to the public, and available for competitive events and skills clinics. We are hoping to use the IMBA Bell Built Grant to implement the intermediate, and potentially beginner and flow trail features. This grant would be used to build the intermediate, and potentially also the beginner, flow trails. For details on the entire Ft. Tuthill Bike Park, click here.
