Pittsburg Trail Project

News

The 23rd street bike park is used for mountain biking.
 It has been neglected over the years, so this inspired Ethan Lomshek to do this for his project. 
His Father as well as community members have been assisting him in removing poison ivy and overgrown brambles on the trails. 
The Pittsburg parks and recreation has also been assisting him on the project. 

” It’s important because this way it will get people more active in the community because they will come together and be able to work on it like this and they’ll want to come out here more..maybe bring some more business out to the bike shop and bring more tourists to town because they will see a nice park.” said Ethan Lomshek, Life Scout 

 ” It’s something that the whole town the whole community is going to benefit from we’ve all the time you see kids out here riding their bikes having a good time and adults too..that like to bike as an exercise and don’t want to get on the roads so it benefits everyone. ” said Roger Lomshek, Owner Tailwind Cyclists Bicycle Shop 

Ethan has three more  work days left to complete his project at the trails on September 29th and 30th…as well as October 6th from noon to five.
