Bike Park Community Meeting

Thank you to everyone who attended the virtual community meeting on July 27th. The website has now been updated with the information we learned in this meeting. We will be continuously updating the FAQ so be sure to check back and if you don't see an answer to your question, let us know at StopBikeRanch@gmail.com 

What Is Shadow Mountain Bike Park,
Formerly Known as Full Send Bike Ranch?

Full Send Bike Ranch has changed their name to Shadow Mountain Bike Park.  We do not support their use of our community's name when so many neighbors oppose the bike park, so we will now be known as "Stop the Bike Park."

The Bike Park, if approved by the Jefferson County Planning Commission, Jefferson County Commissioners and the State Land Board, will be a 250-acre lift access downhill mountain bike park just West of Conifer on Shadow Mountain Drive and South Warhawk Road, see the map below.

They are expecting hundreds of downhill and freestyle mountain bikers daily with the developers estimating at the Community Meeting that there would be more than 1,000 bikers on peak days in 500 cars that would be driving to and from the Bike Park (1,000 vehicle trips) on Shadow Mountain Drive.

our concerns

We oppose the Bike Park because they plan on developing a pristine meadow into a commercial enterprise putting our mountain, our community, wildlife, and environment at risk.

Truck wrecked
Safety

Hundreds of cars driving to and from the Bike Park daily on a residential, winding, narrow, two-lane road with no shoulders and blind turns puts everyone at risk.

Reflection
Air & Water

The car pollution, human waste, and water needs of hundreds of mountain bikers a day and up to 1,000 bikers on a peak day (as projected by the developers) will have detrimental impacts on existing air quality and residential neighborhood wells, impacting the ability for existing ground water to recharge itself.

Elk Creek Fire at Work
Emergency Responder Resources

The Bike Park will provide only first aid, leaving Elk Creek Fire volunteers to respond to all serious accidents on the property. Elk Creek Fire will also need to respond to all traffic accidents caused by the additional use of Shadow Mountain Drive. The Bike Park will not provide adequate funding to assist Elk Creek Fire, which will reduce response times for all other emergencies in the surrounding area.

Wildfire
Wildfire

The proposed development area is in an extreme wildfire risk area. Adding more than 1,000 people on a peak day will greatly increase this risk, 84% of fires are human caused. Shadow Mountain Drive will not be able to handle the traffic load in the event of a fire evacuation.

Big horn sheet
Wildlife

The proposed development area provides habitat for a diverse wildlife population and contains established migratory corridors for some species. There is also summer and fall concentration habitat for black bear, habitat for lynx (an endangered species) and the northern goshawk (a species of greatest conservation need).
