-- FRISCO, Colo. – Sept. 22, 2011 - The Town of Frisco is proud to officially open the Frisco Bike Park this Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011. After two years of hard work and dedication, the once beetle-infested landscape has been repurposed into a multi-diminesional park with something for every rider. The park is free and open to the public from dawn to dusk, seven days a week until the snow flies.
The Bike Park opened the upper trails on July 2, 2011, and was well received by local riders. “We're stoked to open up the rest of the park this Saturday and finally get riders down in it,” said Josh Olson, bike manager for the Town of Frisco.
The top start zone allows riders to choose between intermediate and advanced jump trails or a beginner flow trail. Each of these trails descends into the base area where there is a dedicated dirt jump zone, created with a multitude of line options for all levels of riders. The large pump track is nestled into the base area providing riders with a wide variety of skills-building and two-wheeled fun.
The grand opening celebration is more than a chance to ride the new features, it is a full day of fun. The day will kick off with a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m., followed by pump track races, jump jams and to cap it all off, some live rock-reggae by P-Nuckle, at 5:30 p.m. Our local bike shops will be on hand to show off the latest bikes. Bring your family and your friends and enjoy a fun-fueled day of riding trails, boosting jumps, enjoying a cold beverage, and grooving to some live music.
The Bike Park was funded in large part by the GOCO(SPELL OUT) grant provided through the Colorado Lottery and the Town of Frisco as part of the summer vision for the Frisco Adventure Park. The new park allows locals and visitors to appreciate and enjoy the great Colorado landscape. Thank you to all the sponsors and people who helped make this vision a reality.
