I ran into an acquaintance at the one in boulder yesterday who is also a Longmont resident. We were kind of wondering what our local bicycle advocacy group has been doing to accommodate the MTB/BMX/Dirt cyclists in Longmont and he told me of this:
Three reviews, two with one star and another with three.
This review was informative in that it mentioned the next burg to the North is all-in on doing something significant: https://goo.gl/maps/JQK21SF1KfcZpVes5
This will be most Significant:

Richardson Park is going to be the Jimi Jam. It'll be about half the distance of the other good muni bike parks around and super easy to get to from where I live.Lucky!
What is in Longmont (sold as a skills trail) is not technical to me on my red Mesa Runner town bike. I went over to see a while ago and it's just as the reviewer said. Maybe 25 years ago those would have been slightly significant but now it's just plain sad, especially on its own with plenty of room nearby to have done more. Berthoud's plan has the skills trail, but I'd wager it's going to be mainly ridden by toddlers and other entry level riders for a short period of their riding lives. With most everything leaning towards flow anymore, it's a largely outdated concept.Interesting... What are "skills trails"? Being separated from the flow trail and jump lines, could this mean old school tech stuff? Tight twisty, rocks n roots? I'd love to see this stuff getting made in parks
