Raising awareness of little Bailey, Colorado’s big plans to become the economically thriving trail-sports hub that the Front Range foothills region needs. They have launched an effort to build 140 miles of trails.
Dirt Rag has been generous and let us share the article published October 1, 2012, titled, "Colorado's Missing Link: How a 100-mile Race is Helping a Small Town Find its Singletrack Soul." As a thank you to Dirt Rag, we are asking folks to be sure we give a "Like" to the Dirt Rag page on Facebook, if you haven't already.
There is a vision for Bailey, CO, only 50 minutes outside Denver, as a world-class destination for mountain bikers and other recreational trail users, sparking dramatic economic revitalization for the small, scrappy mountain community. It is a vision that is shared by a growing number of local residents, regional businesses, public officials, economic-development experts, and certainly outdoor enthusiasts.
Bailey Trails hopes the town could achieve “Ride Center” status by the International Mountain Bicycling Association, a designation it has given to only seven cities.
