A Park that’ll Lower our Nation’s Future Carbon Footprint by Training Present and Future Generations of Cyclists

Boulder, Colorado, is known the world-over as a mecca for mountain and road biking—as well as garnering awards, each year, for being among the most bike-friendly cities in the US for the daily commuter. But what we’ve lacked, up until now, is a community hub for cyclists and would-be cyclists of all ages, and all styles. Now, the community, helped by IMBA and others (?), has come together to provide a world class bike park for this—and the next seven—generations.

Kudos!
