In less than two weeks the pump park has gone from a drawing on a piece of paper to this. The majority of the machine work is done and there is now a lot of hand finishing left. They are working from west to east and you will see the difference in level of finish from end to end. The jump lines have been cleared of vegetation and work is starting on them. You can see the master plan here. Please keep out. Parts look rideable, but remember this is an active construction zone and nothing is fully packed or ready for traffic. Remember, we still need more money to pay for all this. Buy a raffle ticket to support this project here. The bike we are raffling will be a shredder in this park.
With an abundance of natural moisture in the soil, Flowride Concepts is off to a blazing start on the park. They are currently building an access road for moving the thousands of yards of dirt delivered to the top of the dam. The pump track is the first order of business. As foreman Ward says, "it's going to get ugly before it gets pretty!" Remember this is an active construction zone. Please keep out until we officially open. It won't be long at at all.
Trail Maintenance Day at Beck Lake a Big Success
A big thank you to the more than 30 intrepid souls who braved the 30 mph wind gusts to get the Beck Lake Trails into prime riding shape. Winter has not left and we have active water flow coming from numerous drifted in gullies. Most of the wet spots were fixed. We also fixed more bike tire ruts than I would like to see. Remember, it you are leaving a rut, get off the trail and fix the damage, even if it means coming back to the damaged area later when it is a bit drier.
Gather up your families and friends, s and show up to support the Park County Pedalers at their annual, family friendly FUNraiser with Jalan Crossland and Kalyn Beasley. Park County Pedalers is proud to cap off our Beck Lake Bike Park fundraising efforts with our annual concert. Bring your wallets, dancing shoes and a thirst for some fine Red Lodge Ales beverages. There will be an amazing silent auction, beer, and refreshments.
