Just days after Berthoud, Colorado, opened their 24-acre, $2.2 million bike park, Firestone, Colorado, opened one of their own on September 23rd.  Although smaller than Berthoud’s, the two acre park includes an asphalt Velosolutions pump track, wall rides, dirt jumps with wooden lips, drops, and elevated wooden obstacles. The park is located just south of the Mountain Shadows Park at 11267 Carbondale St. in Firestone.

An opening date for Windsor’s $250,000, 20,000 sq ft Velosolutions asphalt pump track has yet to be announced.

“In 2022, the Board of Trustees approved a contract to design and construct a Pump Track and Bike Park in the Mountain Shadows subdivision, just south of the Mountain Shadows Park. In the 2023 Capital Improvement Projects budget, Phase 2 of the Pump Track and Bike Park was approved, which included the dirt bike park portion. During the February 8, 2023 meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a change order to the original contract approved in May of 2022 to include the design and construction of Phase 2. With this approval, both phases of the park were constructed at once. Work began in late March of 2023 and is anticipated to be completed in September.

The Mountain Shadows pump track and bike park will allow cyclists of all ages to develop skills for off-road biking. The layout will utilize a mixture of asphalt and dirt pathways, intersections, and turns to allow riders to develop various ways of traversing the track. The park’s paths and obstacles will provide playgrounds and training facilities for bikers, skateboarders, or scooter riders at any skill level.”
