Most of it should be done in a month I believe. The downhill portion of the jump trail is pretty much done as of the end of the day yesterday. It just needs to be ridden and packed down. The uphill return trail is still super rough and needs a lot of work. Pump track and skills area haven't been started yet.All I want is to be hardcore.

Here's the basic info. E-mail them so you'll get the updates.
How you can help:
2. maintenance crews
3. Trail construction
1. I would like to get your support. All you need to do is send me an email, stating your support of the park.
-your full name
-your address, city, state
-email address (this is for communication only, I WON'T SPAM YOU!!!)
-telephone number (optional)
2. We are putting together a long term maintenance plan for Golden Parks & Rec's Dept. Because they have never maintained a facility like this, short term, we need your help with a maintenance plan. If you would like to volunteer some time, helping with trail maintenance and other bike park help, Please let me know in the email!!!
-state in the email: Please contact me for help with bike park maintenance.
-our expectation is that we'll run a voluntary once a month (initially) crew to keep the dirt in the right places and make sure the trails are the way we want them.
3. Longer term, we'll be putting together new trail plans and Bike Park Idea's from you. We want this to be a place where everyone (XC, DH, DS, DJ, DS, FR, Cyclo-cross, kids, teenager, groms, wives, beginners to seasoned experts) can come and ride. In addition to your support, please realize that when you send your support for this park, that you may be a part of its longevity as this grows into something for everyone. Building trails can be a lot of fun, please let us know if you're interested in that as well.
So please, send me an email, with the above info (your name, addy) and let us know if you're interested in being a part of the trail crew (both routine maintenance and long term planning input).
Please send emails to: email@example.comAll I want is to be hardcore.
