BMX Track In Lake Stevens


Dear Editor,

I favor the possible addition of the BMX Track that has been proposed by both the City of Lake Stevens and Snohomish County in the Cavalero Community Park. My son and I are involved in BMX racing, which has provided my son and I with a great bond since we both race and have fun.

When we go to the BMX Track it is all about having fun and meeting people. We have racer’s that grew up and turned pro. We have a Olympian rider living here who also trained here.

Colleges now offer BMX racing in some of there cycling programs, and scholarships are now available for this sport.

In September the BMX Nationals will be held in WA. Riders from all over the Country will come here.

The main thing is my son and many other kids would have a place to ride there bikes an stay active right in Lake

Stevens. There are so many parents that help out at all the tracks and help new riders get started along with helping the season riders. When more parents get out and spend time with there kids it’s a good thing.
