Dear Sir or Madam (Parks Manager)
I am writing this letter to let you know about a recreation opportunity that I feel would be very advantageous in our community.
Mountain biking has become very popular around the world and is growing in popularity in our city/town. With riders of all ages and abilities looking for places to ride combined with the rapid learning curve of youth, safe, fun riding areas are needed in our community.
Much like skateboard parks, bike 'skills parks' are a mainstay with many other cities and communities like, West Vancouver, BC. Olympic Nordic Center, Canmore, Alberta. Corral Center, Colorado. Sherwood Park, UK and a series of other places around the world that use skills parks as a risk management plan and a fun progressive place for riders to learn and experience.
The funding required to build bike parks is less than skateboard parks and can vary in size and styles using green space in urban areas or adjacent to recreation centers. Many examples of funding for parks have come from Rotory, Lions, tax dollars and private donations.
There are established materials and resources available on 'skills parks' through Hoots http://www.hoots.ca
and IMBA (international Mountain Bike Association) http://www.imba.com
Thanks for considering a bike park in our neighbourhood!
