Wild, Wild West
There is a new sport in town pardner. Well, maybe more like a new take on the beloved sport of bicycling. The Boulder Valmont Bike Park is incredible opportunity to ride a variety of dirt courses, of varying degrees of difficulty. All ages of riders are welcome, though clearly some of the trails are far more technical than others.
Little Kids And Big Kids
You are going to find young riders enjoying the dirt trails and experienced riders hanging back flips on the various tracks at Boulder Valmont Bike Park. Me? I might be big, but I’m sticking to the easier rides for now. I shot a number of photographs on a recent sunny Saturday afternoon, and there was a little bit of everything.
Parents with young riders, older bicycling fans getting a good workout, young persons with hardcore full face protection gear getting set for death defying jumps. With a beloved dog park next door and pavilions for picnicking, Boulder Valmont Bike Park really does offer something for the entire family.
