The MTB community has a LOT to gain from the 2022 Bond Program, but we MUST make our voices heard. Whether it be the proposed ~20-acre bike park at the O.P. Schnabel Park Expansion property (think of the progressive features at The Railyard, Valmont, and other bike parks)(District 7), the completion/expansion of the McAllister Park bike skills course with more progressive features and improvements (Districts 9 & 10), a MTB trail system in Pearsall Park (District 4), or progressive downhill trails at the Eisenhower Park expansion property (District 8 ), we have to come out IN FORCE to let the City know that San Antonio deserves and demands world-class mountain bike facilities/amenities.

We constantly hear from people returning from out-of-state trips to destinations like The Railyard, etc. in Bentonville and Rogers, AR or Valmont Bike Park in Boulder, CO (and many others) and the common theme/question is “Why can’t we have these types of trails, bike parks, etc. in San Antonio?” Well, here’s your chance to speak up and let the City know we want 2022 Bond Program funds used to build them in San Antonio. If you have been to these great MTB destinations, we need you to talk about how great the experience was and how everyone in San Antonio should be able to experience it without having to drive 10+ hours out of state.

We especially need people to show up and SPEAK at the Parks Community Meetings from 6:00-8:00pm on Tuesday Nov 16th and Tuesday, December 7th at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center (free parking). There is a 2 MINUTE time limit for Citizens to be Heard. Many of you are great public speakers, so come out an speak about your passion for mountain biking and how you want San Antonio to be a great destination spot for local and out-of-town mountain bikers alike.

MUST SIGN UP TO SPEAK BEFORE 5:30PM, so get there early!

Even if you don’t consider yourself a good public speaker, sign up anyway and say a few words about how much it would mean to have these projects funded. I know any one of you can stand up and speak for less than 2 minutes on their passion for mountain biking, what it means for your physical and mental health and how you want these progressive mountain bike trails and parks in San Antonio.
