Lunch Loop Bike Park: Volunteer Day #2 + Huktoberfest

News

Quick report on the 2nd LLBP Volunteer Day + Grassroots Cycles’ Huktoberfest fundraiser…

We had another 75+ adults & kids show up en force to build additional challenge lines on Kids’ Meal singletrack and tamp dirt in the bike park zone.  Some commented that a few of the challenge lines looked like Holy Cross!  The BLM Water Truck made a few cameo appearances – kids young and old were psyched to get on the hose.  A fun time was had by all…

From there we migrated uphill to Glade Park’s The Ranch for the LLBP fundraiser, Huktoberfest.  Hosted by Grassroots Cycles, it was a thriller for all spectators with DS and Slopestyle competitions, brats and dogs and cool ‘fall-is-coming’ temps.  3 hours of big air and sweet tricks wowed the crowd of equally-respresented kids and adults.  The pump track provided hours of entertainment for kids on bikes, and parents providing tips on how not to pedal.
