Valmont Bike Park programmer contractor selected
The City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department has selected Avid4 Adventure to provide a variety of cycling classes and programs at the recently-opened Valmont Bike Park, located at Airport and Valmont roads in Boulder.
Avid4 Adventure was selected upon review of numerous proposals received after a request for proposals was posted earlier this year. A one-year contract with renewal options for up to two additional years was awarded. Selection was based on criteria established by the department for management of programs and classes to be offered at the park.
Beginning this fall, Avid4 Adventure will become the primary provider of all organized recreational programming at Valmont Bike Park, including program development, staffing and registration. The City of Boulder will share revenue generated from these programs.
“We are thrilled to partner with the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department,” said David Secunda, Avid4 Adventure Program Director. “Valmont Bike Park is a facility without parallel around the world. The city has shown great leadership in bringing this asset to those in Boulder, and we are proud to compliment this one-of-a-kind park with world-class instructional programs.”
Over the next year, offerings will roll out at the park to serve youth and adult populations. Programs may include after school programs, summer camps, private instruction and school programs. Residents interested in these new programs can visit www.avid4.com for information.
“Avid4 Adventure is a proven and trusted source for off-road cycling camps and classes in our community. We are excited to partner with them to offer another way for youth and adults to enjoy riding at Valmont Bike Park,” said Kirk Kincannon, director of Boulder Parks and Recreation. “People are still free to enjoy the park on their own. These programs simply add new ways for visitors to learn riding techniques, meet people and experience the park.”
