Sol Vista Bike Park: It’s on!

I’m in charge of paperwork, negotiating and signage; Steve Wentz is in charge of trails. He hired TJ Sharp and Mike Moga to help, and I’ll bet they’re building as you read this.

In the valley below, the sleepy town of Granby has no idea what’s coming.

The site has no info about the bike park, but here it is anyway:
