Good news on Public/Private Project at BCSP
« on: April 01, 2014, 02:02:46 PM »
Great news for Brown County today as it was announced that there is going to a great addition to the Brown County Trail System.  The parks are continually looking for ways to increase revenue for the parks to keep them in the black. 
 
It was announced today that the Hoosiers Nest Cabin, in partnership with several local breweries,  is going be converted into a craft beer pub.  Plans are still in the works, but a trailside pub should be a gold mine of revenue for BCSP.
 
Concessions likely have to be made to other user groups, who are demanding that Bud Light be available as well, but overall reception has been great.

 In other news, bar ends have made a comeback and are now the must have fashion item for mountain biking in 2014 per a recent poll by a distinguished mountain biking periodical.

That makes sense.  The crowd for the zipline from fire tower to campground will guarantee a brisk business.

January 31st Hope was there with purple Dave. Get some! https://www.facebook.com/hopetech/photos/a.179027565472417.40824.161958553845985/657647887610380/?type=1&theater

Will there be a package deal for camping and the zip line? I will need to stay there if I enjoy the craft beers.

We do have another plan generating revenue.  Since the bike industry is clearly off base with respect to the correct wheel size, we are going to start building trails at BCSP specifically for 28.25" wheel sized bikes.

This will drive the bike industry towards what is obviously the correct wheel size for mountain bikes.

We plan to phase in the 28.25" wheel size by charging a fee for other wheel sizes, until 2018, when only 28.25" bikes will be allowed at BCSP.

Good April Fool's, Paul!  But with the way the tire sizes have been going the past few years, it sounds almost believable!   ;)

My bet is on the 36" wheels.  If bigger is better than 36" should just be absolutely awesome.  You could just roll over all the obstacles and not worry about your technical riding skills or other handicaps.  :P

Make people walk 20 feet up the trail in order to get Bud Lite and the demand will go to zero.  ;)

European 28.25" or American 28.25"...cause there's a difference.

Sadly, you had me sucked in till I read that last paragraph.  I had visions of inebriated riders missing turns on Limekiln at 30mph, or down on all fours somewhere on Wanut ralphing.  :o  As Tim O'Donnell once said, "I know funny. And that, my friend, is funny!"

Wheels?  Why not a 3" wide caterpillar track in back and a ski in front.  Great traction for climbing.
