Grand Junction has got a BIKE PARK!

Grand Junction, COLO- (Oct 16, 2010)

A bike park, it’s no new idea. Bike parks are popping up all over Colorado much like skateparks did 10 years ago. Bike parks can be found all around the front range including Boulder, Denver, Golden and well into the mountains. This past weekend Grand Junction opened it’s brand new bike park, the Lunch Loops Bike Park, at the base of the Lunch Loops area and Tabeguache trailhead just outside of Grand Junction.

The park, slightly hidden from view, is tucked into western end of the trailhead parking lot. Once the park becomes visible, you will certainly be amazing with what you see. This entire park, including the dual slalom course, pump track and twenty plus dirt jumps ranging from small rollers all the way up to massive doubles were all built in two weeks time!

The Lunch Loops Bike Park, is spear headed by Jen Taylor, Grand Junction local and is an Officer of the Board of Directors for COPMOBA. Jen Taylor gave some insight on the start of the park. “The idea for this park hit me one day while riding Kurt's Lane, a popular fast trail ending at the parking lot. Riding fast down the trail I came to a stop overlooking the parking area wishing the piles of dirt where still there to jump. And that is when it hit me!”

The project began that April of 2010, with the idea that a bike park in this location could do so much for the community. The already existing infrastructure of a parking lot and bathrooms made it an easy choice. Taylor also said, “The River Front trail now connects to the Monument Road bike path, making it easy for families to get out there. Not everyone does has a bike rack for their car, so this is an easy access to get kids outside and to the park.”

The actual building of the park was completed on an extremely tight time frame of two weeks. “When Jen asked if we could build this park in two weeks, it seemed a little daunting, but possible.” said Greg Mazu of Singletrack Trails. Singletrack Trails was contracted out by the city to build the park. Greg, along with six other crew members erected the park is perfect timing. The park’s grand opening Saturday brought out several hundred people from the community and further.

When asked how he felt after completing the build, James Flatten of Grassroots Cycles replied softly, “I’m tired, really tired. I came into this two week mega build after spending five days in the Utah desert building at the Red Bull Rampage. I’m glad it’s over, now we all can enjoy the hard work that brought our blisters and sore muscles.”

If you have any questions on the park, or to get directions contact the Grassroots Cycles shop at 970.243.2453 or stop by at 401 Colorado Ave. Grand Junction, CO.

Hundreds of people from all over the Grand Mesa area and beyond came out for the grand opening of the park.

With the cut of the ribbon the park was officially open.

Freshly opened to the public, Grand Junction now has a bike park located at the base of the Lunch Loops trails. Go check it out, it is an amazing thing.

turtle turtle!

my parents showed me this awesome sea cave that is a popular hangout for sea turtles. the first time we went down i was not well prepared to photograph in the darkness of the cave. upon returning i was bummed to see there was only two turtles. as any good photographer would do, i took a seat and waited it out. after about 30mins of waiting there was now 12 turtles on the shore of the cave! here is one shot i got from my adventures! enjoy

old find new

i love bikes, paths make things smooth. sunsets make my face go to a smile. hope you find a place soon, to make things turn up; never falling. where does love come from? where does it go when it is gone? if you can swim it isn't mattering. never falling down.
