* BMX Pump Park At Wenatchees Lincoln Park Pushed Back To 2022.
Wenatchee, Washington USA -- 09/24/2021
Construction for a BMX pump park in Lincoln Park will not be completed this fall and will instead be
pushed to next summer. The Wenatchee City Council on Thursday rescinded approval for an $181,400 contract
with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for a pump park at Lincoln Park. Councilmember Travis Hornby, whos
worked as a project manager for the alliance, recused himself from the vote. Evergreen had committed $10,000
of its own money to the city for the project and planned to use some volunteer labor. After nearly two months
of negotiation, the group stated it would not be able to complete the contract as bid. A lot of it was volunteer
work and a lot of the volunteers were fighting fires,” Mayor Frank Kuntz told the council. They basically
said they didnt think they could make the deadline. Construction was expected to finish by October, but
Evergreen proposed moving back construction to next summer. The citys capital projects manager, Charlotte
Mitchell, said since the contract included a set schedule, it had to be rescinded once the contractor couldnt
meet the deadline. We cannot just allow the contractor to set the contract in this case, Mitchell said. Because
then we would have to allow that for every other contractor. We couldnt be seen to be showing favoritism.
The pump park work will instead be wrapped up into a larger contract for improvements to the entire park,
including a splash pad and soccer/lacrosse field. That larger contract will go out next month and Evergreen,
which was the only company to bid on the pump park contract, is expected to bid as a sub.

* Wenatchee BMX Park Coming In 2021.
Wenatchee, Washington USA -- 07/09/2021
Lincoln Park is getting its newest upgrade in the form of a BMX pump park. The Wenatchee City Council
voted unanimously Thursday to award a $181,448 contract to the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for the
project. Construction is expected to start this summer and finish by October, and the parks size will be similar
to that of a full-size basketball court. The addition will be the latest in a series of upgrades known as the
Lincoln Park Renovation Project, which began in 2015. Construction on future sub-projects, including a splash
pad and soccer/lacrosse field, is planned for the spring and summer of 2022. The pump park, which will be in
the southwest corner of Lincoln Park, was initially planned as a dirt park. However, the city settled on a paver
park to reduce long-term operational costs. The Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, which worked on East
Wenatchees pump park, was the only entity that submitted a contract bid after the city sent out solicitations
to over 200 companies. The alliance will use some volunteer labor to complete the project and is putting in
$10,000 of its own money as a grant to the city.

Thursday night with the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance to design and build the pump park, much like projects
the nonprofit group has overseen in East Wenatchee and Cashmere. City Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services
Director Dave Erickson says now that its approved, the pump park should be open and ready for use in October.

* City Of Wenatchee Plans Pump Track By Fall For Lincoln Park Remodel.
Wenatchee, Washington USA -- 07/07/2021
The city of Wenatchee has plans for a $3.5 million remodel at Lincoln Park, including the addition
of a pump track. According to Kuntz, the goal is to have the pump track built this fall. The pump
track will be asphalt and similar to the pump track at the East Wenatchee Park. The park is expected
to be funded with a combination of state funds, grants, county dollars and the citys sewer fund.

* 13-Year-Old Asking Wenatchee City To Change Skatepark Policies.
Wenatchee, Washington USA -- 07/06/2021
Sam Wagner started skating when he was 5 years old. Today, as a 13-year-old attending Pioneer Middle
School, its still his favorite thing to do. In fact, hes at Hale Park skatepark nearly every day. Its that love
for the sport that motivated him to petition the city to extend the closing time from dusk to 10 p.m. and turn
on the lights at the skatepark. The park opened in September 2019, and lights funded by a state grant were
installed in 2020. When they werent turned on, Wagner assumed it was because of COVID. And Now, he is
questioning why the lights still arent on. ---- Gene`s BMX Quotes:- First Off, Hale Park Is Not A Good Place

Even Before The Hale Park Was Add There. That Land-Area Has A Troubled History. - Two:- The City Of
Wenatchee Should Turn On The Lights For Safty. If They Do Not, The Kid Shoud Go Over The Citys Head

* Guest Editorial: Why Cant We Make Bikes In The US?.
Boulder, CO USA ( BRAIN ) -- 03/18/2021
OK, so right from the get-go, I will come clean and tell you that I don't have a background in economics,
finance, or supply chain/logistics. So, perhaps what I am going to write below will be seen as pie-in-the
-sky idealism at best, or total naivete, at worst. I want to know why, aside from the original reason -
Americans wanting less expensive goods cant the bike industry find the will to start manufacturing bikes
and components in the United States again? ( More )

* Broken Chain: Why Not Build More Factories? Heres Why.
Boulder, CO USA ( BRAIN ) -- 03/09/2021
Three years ago, social media feeds filled with colorful, striking images of abandoned share bikes in China,
piled into teetering mountains. They shocked the world, or at least inspired use of shocked emojis for a few
hours.In the Chinese industry, the share-bike collapse lasted more than one news cycle. It may even help
explain why its hard to find bikes in the U.S., which got 88% of its bikes from China last year. After the share
-bike debacle, manufacturers are wary of another boom-bust. ( More )

03/03/2021:- 2021 USA BMX Great Northwest Nationals Has Been Cancelled Due To Covid Restrictions.



* ABA-USA BMX Great Northwest Nationals April 09th - 11th, 2021 In Redmond, Oregon Cancelled.

Quote:- We regret to inform you that the 2021 USA BMX Great Northwest nationals has been cancelled
due to Covid restrictions. We are truly heartbroken for our members in the Northwest that were
planning to attend this event. The Redmond event has been a staple on the national schedule for
many years & we cannot wait to bring the event back in the future.

At this time we would like to let everyone know that we are shifting the Lumberjack Nationals that
will take place August 27th-29th at Spokane BMX to a 3-day national. We feel this is the best thing
to do in order to give another score option for the Northwest riders.

We are proud to announce that a national event will still take place during the weekend of April 9th-11th.
We are shifting to Gretna BMX Raceway located in Gretna, Louisiana for the 2-day Bayou Classic Nationals.
Gretna BMX is an awesome track with a great group of volunteers that will have things dialed for all that
attend. We will get the hotels sourced as soon as possible, as well as, the event ad for this National.

As always, we appreciate your patience & understanding as we continue to navigate through these strange times.
