New Singletrack at Bloomberg Park: Update 04/25
A new section of trail with possible future connection to the Ridgeline Trail
Taylor Bushnell, the DOD Land Access and Protection Coordinator, has been working on a section of single track in Bloomberg Park with the intention of holding short track races there. Bloomberg Park is located across from LCC between 30th Ave. and McVey Hwy. The Tensegrity Cycling team members have already been out clearing blackberries and getting a start on trail building. Sunday April 15th saw a good turnout of trail workers from both Team Tensegrity and the DOD, resulting in the lower trail being 90% completed including two log rides, a "rock garden," and some superb drainage management. The plan for the next work day out there is to cut new trail in the trees. This will be a fun place to ride and a great addition to Ridgeline rides by the end of the summer.
Important: There have been some grumblings from the local neighborhood association about the increase of traffic in the area. We have the Eugene Parks Dept. behind us on this project, but for now and until we sort things out with the residents, we are asking that you please do not drive down or park on Bloomberg Road to access the trails. If you want to check out the area, you can park at LCC and ride 30th Ave/McVey Hwy to Bloomberg Road. Or you can ride Ridgeline to Baldy to Spring Blvd and connect to Bloomberg Park via dirt roads.
