Cottage Grove Bike Park dream becomes reality for lead volunteer

Email

It has been a whirlwind year for Cottage Grove resident and BMX enthusiast Chance Glasford.

Last spring, Glasford had a dream to build the area’s first all-ages, multi-skill level mountain bike park. And with the help of hundreds of volunteers, a $33,000 Bell Helmets grant and support from the city, his dream became a reality at the ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday for the new Cottage Grove Bike Park.

“This is just really sweet,” Glasford said.
