Construction on the bike park is moving along, most of the trails are nearing completion. Local Artist Christian Mueller has installed the concrete and the two support pillars for the podium (Boulder style 5 man). The podium steps are cut stones with a concrete base. Without a doubt, this will be the coolest podium in the world. Thanks to our buds at Pearl Izumi for donating $30,000 to pay for this. This week the steel header and steps should be installed:
J2 Contracting has been working on the parking lot and bridges. Two ditches run through the site, and the bridges are required before the gates can open. Here is a shot of the excavation work for the bridges. They are being built not only for bike traffic, but will also be able to handle an ambulance or other emergency equipment.
None of this is as cool as the bike features, but the infrastructure needs to happen before bikes inundate the site. Be patient, this place is going to be over the top. Please respect our friends at the City Of Boulder Parks Department and do not enter the site. Poaching is not cool. Stay tuned.
