Winter Park Mountain Bike Capital USA
The Winter Park/Fraser Chamber is getting a new website up and running strictly about mountain biking in and around Winter Park, Colorado. So far there are trails and some other such stuff there and it looks to be a great addition to their main website.
The website is http://www.mountainbikecapitalusa.com/ . It is still under construction but there are a few Winter Park bike trails there. If you would like to contribute photos or video there is a place to do that on the site.
With over 600 miles of trails, it’s no wonder that Winter Park & the Fraser Valley is the Mountain Bike Capital of the United States.
The Winter Park Lodging Co crew took a day this week to hit the Trestle Bike Park for some downhill gravity fed mountain biking and what a day it was. We will post some video of my falls when we get them edited. If you have not downhill mountain biked it is something that should be tried. It is a workout like nine other and quite the rush.
