SATURDAY August 22, 2015 STAFFORD MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK GRAND OPENING

Strap on that bike helmet for a ground-breaking ride: The first phase of Novato’s Stafford Lake Bike Park, the North Bay’s first public bike park, is set to open Saturday August 22, 2015.

The Phase I Opening Event begins at 10 AM until 2 PM and will be free to the public (waiving the usual $10 park admission fee). Everyone will have a chance to ride the trails, hear from honored guests, mingle with park sponsors, listen to live music, enjoy refreshments, and donate to the future park phases.

The key features of the Phase I bike park include a progression jump course, dual slalom track, and a perimeter trail. Still to come in the next few months are a kids-learn-to-ride area and beginner pump track (they may be finished in time for the opening!) Further fundraising would add advanced and intermediate pump tracks, a terrain park, downhill and flow trails, bridge crossings, a progression trail with balance features, and a main event plaza.
