    Lee, this looks awesome! But, to far away for me. Do you know of something similiar near Farmington, NM/Durango, CO?

    This just in from Tammy at IMBA:

    On June 16, 2007, 10am- 3pm, Lory State Park near Fort Collins will
    celebrate the grand opening of their brand new mountain bike offering
    — the Coral Center Mountain Bike Park. Featured in IMBA’s new book,
    “Managing Mountain Biking: IMBA’s Guide To Providing Great Riding,”
    this park facility is intended to provide novice to advanced riders
    the opportunity to hone their skills on constructed features, a pump
    track and dirt jump park.

    The festival will mark the opening of this new bike park, the first
    of its kind in Colorado State Parks, by offering activities for all
    family members. Mountain bikers can take part in bike skills classes,
    relay races, guided mountain bike rides, geocaching demonstrations,
    scavenger hunts, product giveaways, bike demos. A professional dirt
    jumping exhibition will highlight the lunch hour, with food and drink
    provided. Park entrance fees are waived during this event.

    Combined with the expanded trail system open to bikes in Lory State
    Park and the recent connections to the Blue Sky trail, Horsetooth and
    Devil’s Backbone Park trail systems, Lory is fast becoming a Front
    Range mountain biking haven. IMBA is working with Colorado State
    Parks to develop more and better riding opportunities with
    consultation and trail planning having already been undertaken at
    Lake Pueblo, Cheyenne Mountain, Staunton and Lory State Parks. We ask
    that you support Colorado State Parks by riding — buy a State Parks
    Pass, hop on the saddle, and then let the Park Superintendent know
    how much you’re enjoying the work they’re putting into improving
    mountain biking opportunities for Colorado residents.

    Lee, your link to the PDF flyer is incorrect. It’s a PDF and not a JPG. All you need to do is change the link. See you Saturday if you are at Lory.
