Indy Parks to highlight bike park expansion options[/color]
[/color]
[/color]INDIANAPOLIS – On Tuesday, Indy Parks will host a public meeting to highlight bike park expansion options for Washington Park. Currently, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) offers its bike skills and safety programs for youth at the bike park, which is located to the northwest of Washington Park’s family center.
[/color]
[/color]What[/b][/color]:            Join IMPD and Indy Parks to discuss bike park expansion options   
[/color] [/b]
[/color]When[/b][/color]:           Tuesday, November 28
[/color]6-7:30 p.m.
[/color] [/b]
[/color]Where[/b][/color]:          Washington Park 
[/color]3130 E. 30th Street
[/color]
[/color]An expansion of the current 5-acre bike park would allow for an increase in IMPD’s bike programs and community outreach. Park planners and IMPD representatives will be on hand to review options and answer resident questions.
[/color]
[/color]Residents are invited to learn more about the bike park and ways the current space could be expanded. For more information about Indy Parks, visit indy.gov/parks, or call (317) 327-PARK.

We will have our first work session this Saturday, 12/2/17, from 10a-2p.


This new trail will be outside the fenced bike park and open to the public to ride anytime.


Bring gloves, water, and your bike!  We will work and ride.

Thanks to Mike, Steve, Chris, Lee, and Ted the Trail Crew was able to make a great start to what is going to be an extensive addition to the trails at the HQ.


Stay tuned for future trail building opportunities.

Looks like we may have some snow cover on Saturday morning so the Trail Crew is going to take advantage of the sunshine on Friday to do some trail work.


If you would like to come out and swing a Rhino we will be working from noon-4 on Friday.


Thanks again to everyone who helped us kick off the new trail build last Saturday.

Steve and Lee made it out and along with the Trail Crew we got another 1/4 mile of sweet singletrack  complete.


We have added approximately 1/2 mile to the outside perimeter trail in just 2 sessions!


Watch for more opportunities to come out and help.
