There's a future for recreational trails on Cypress. The question is what shape that future will take. That's why we're asking for bikers to attend any one of the 3 Open Houses and let DWV and BPP know that there's still strong interest and support for the trails.
Consider the known facts:
1 - The land manager is concerned about liability risks.
2 - DWV is willing to take responsibility for the trails.
3 - Development above the 1200' contour is restricted.
4 - Cypress Village will need customers.
5 - Mtn bikers have considerable disposable income.
There is potential for a win-win-win solution between DWV, BPP [HTML_REMOVED] mtn bikers. But there are risks with the current situation.
We want to encourage all parties to move forward as quickly as possible and identify areas for recreational trails. That's the message that should be heard loud and clear at the open houses.
