(Grand Junction, CO – October 15, 2010) The award-winning non-profit trail organization, Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association (COPMOBA), announces the Lunch Loop Bike Park (LLBP) ribbon-cutting will take place Saturday, October 16th, 2010.
The early bird gets the worm – or in this case, the sweet line. This Saturday morning, kids of all ages and abilities are invited to experience the soon-to-be-opened Lunch Loop Bike Park at Monument Road’s “Tabeguache/Lunch Loop” trailhead.
What to Expect
The ribbon-cutting ceremony will begin at 9am. Attendees will receive complimentary breakfast provided and served by the Grand Junction REI staff, as well as fresh-brewed coffee from Roasted Coffee House. COPMOBA President, Chris Muhr will speak on behalf of the non-profit organization and the LLBP project. LLBP Spearhead and COPMOBA Board Officer, Jen Taylor will speak on behalf of the vision and mission of the project, and recognize its Partners and Sponsors. BLM Manager, Chris Ham will speak on behalf of the BLM’s involvement and the importance of the LLBP.
The park will then be dedicated to the Community with the ‘cutting of the ribbon’. Professional demonstrations will take place throughout the morning and skills clinics will be offered to the public.
Between 9:45 and 10:00am, a custom-built Cove park-bike package – donated by Grassroots Cycles and valued over $2500 – will be raffled off to one lucky winner. $20 tickets will be sold until the drawing is held. All proceeds benefit the bike park. Must be present to win.
Bring the family, bring the bikes! And celebrate the grand opening of the Lunch Loop Bike Park!

About COPMOBA (Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association)
In 1989, a visionary group of mountain bikers worked tirelessly with land management agencies to establish the first interstate mountain bike trail, Kokopelli’s Trail from Fruita, CO to Moab, UT. As a result, COPMOBA was formed to advocate for, design, build and maintain the now-extensive and world-famous 1500+ miles of singletrack and doubletrack trails in western Colorado and eastern Utah. Trail systems include Kokopelli’s, Tabeguache, and Paradox, as well as the Grand Mesa, Palisade, Gateway, and Ridgway, CO. Through volunteer trail construction and maintenance projects, land-agency advocacy, rides, and fundraising efforts we act as a positive voice for mountain biking and trail recreation, dedicated to the development and maintenance of mountain bike trails on the Colorado Plateau.
