Auburn Bike Park Receives Specialized Grant

This summer Specialized Bicycles generously awarded us $2,500 towards bike park construction. We also thank our local bike shop, Victory Velo, for leading the effort to secure these funds! Swing by the Victory Velo/Specialized Bikes booth at the Food Truck Fiesta on Aug 21st and thank them for their support of the bike park!

What’s next for the bike park?
The environmental reports have been completed and will be open for public comment by mid-August. At this time, the ARD Board is expected to review and these reports at its meeting on Thursday, September 24th, thus giving final approval for the park. Soon after, we should be able to break ground! IMBA Trail Solutions will lend their expertise to the building of the features. We’ll provide an update and more details in September.

Even with the funds raised, we’ll still need volunteers and donations of equipment and specialized labor such as breaking up some of the old asphalt, fence installation, etc. Contact us if you can assist or with questions.

Thanks again for all of your support! It’s been a long journey and we’re almost there!
