Speaking of mountain biking towns, singletracks member nejmensi points out that the freeze on legal singletrack in Boulder, CO is starting to thaw. Here’s what he had to say:

Big news out of Boulder Colorado (my home) this week is that they are planning to enlarge the popular Betasso Preserve trail network by an additional 4.6 miles! The existing trail is around roughly 3.2 miles and is the most frequented trial in the county/city according to Boulder County statistics. This follows on the heels of countless new trials in the last few months including a completely new trail in South Boulder that includes the spanking new 3 mile +/- “Spring Brook” trail, “Vista…” loops, and “High Plains Trail”, effectively making the South end of town a full 15 mile +/- system. The Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance (BMA) is to credit for much of this… Boulder is definitely entering 2009 with a great new expanded trail network! About time…

Sweet. Now, if we could just establish a decent mountain bike town out here on the east coast!
