After New York City, it’s the small town of Leavenworth, WA, with only 2000 citizens, that got the next Velosolutions pumptrack in the USA.
Chris Booher and Angela Harrison from the Blue Lotus Foundation put in a crazy amount of work to make this happen. The Velosolutions crew was just as stoked to build this one as it was in the big city on the east coast. It is extremely grateful to be given this opportunity.
Ever since the official opening of the pumptrack, it is packed with kids riding, and you can see in their faces, that they’re just as grateful for Chris’ and Angela’s perseverance.
|This is a special one! Wait - it seems like I say this about every pump track we build, but, oh well, this one really is. What a time we had in #Merica Everything else you'll see on the video or by visiting the track in Leavenworth yourself. Have fun. Biggest thanks to Angela and Chris. - Claudio Caluori |
The Blue Lotus Foundation was started in honor of Ellie Booher, who died in an avalanche two years ago. She loved the outdoors and always wanted the kids to be doing outdoor activities. The pumptrack is foundation’s first project in honor of Ellie.
Jill Kintner and Bryn Atkinson visited the 10,000 square foot pumptrack on the same day that Velosolutions laid down the last wheelbarrows of asphalt and rode a few laps while it was still warm.
