II. Transportation Plan Ranchstyle will bus all patrons to the venue, and have limited parking on site for permit holders. We will have two shuttle stop locations for pick up. One will be at 4th & Colorado, wells fargo parking lot, where the shop stop bike expo will be. Parking for patrons coming to the shop stop will be at 3rd st. and Ute Ave. in big dirt parking lot. The other shuttle stop will be at Dos Hombres dirt parking lot at 412 Brach Drive (Broadway & Monument). Friday night and Sunday we will shuttle from Dos Hombres parking lot only. Two -four, 45 passenger busses will run throughout the day Saturday. The estimated round trip is one hour. Busses will pick up at both locations approximately every 30 minutes. We will add two more 45 passenger busses for the venue clear (6 total). We do have more busses available if we decide we need more to clear the venue in a punctual manner (ie. inclement weather). Venue Capacity is approximately 400 people. We will control our capacity by issuing online tickets and requiring a ticket/wrist band to board a shuttle bus. Parking will be permitted at the venue only by athletes, staff, and event credentials (media, vip). We will limit the parking on site to be self contained within the venue parameters (approximately 100 vehicles).

III. Partnership with Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Association (COPMOBA) – Three Sisters Park Ranchstyle is partnering up with COPMOBA to help raise money for preserving Three Sisters Park. The Mesa Land Trust will purchase the Three Sisters Property adjacent to the Tabeguache/Lunch Loop Trails, and will place a conservation easement on the property that will preserve it for public use. COPMOBA will develop beginner biking and hiking trails for kids and families on this land. Ranchstyle, for the first year, is having a downtown bike expo in conjunction with the event in Glade Park on Saturday, May 5th. Ranchstyle will request a $100 donation to the Three Sisters Park project from all bike shops and bike manufacturers participating in the expo. That will be the only fee they have to pay to participate. Grassroots Cyles (host of Ranchstyle) will be providing shuttle service from the bike expo area to Tabeguache trailhead area for bike demos. This will coincide with a Three Sisters Park fundraiser in the area that same day.

IV. Site Details


Best Trick Course is at base of venue. It’s the last jump of the Slopestyle Course. One jump, one landing. Slopestyle Course is approximately 800’ long. Various jump features including dirt jumps and landings, wood ramps, wood bridges, wall rides, and custom built wood features. Each rider will usually hit 7-8 features per run. Super Slalom Course is an all dirt track approximately 1,000’ long. The full length of the course keeps two tracks together, butting two racers head to head through an assortment of doubles, triples, table tops, banks, woops, and swooshes. Fun to watch, but more fun to ride! Parking at the main venue is restricted to permit holders only. We will allow a max camping capacity of 50 vehicles. We will provide parking permits for athletes, staff, media, vip. Estimate a total of 100. Vendors will have an assigned space that will be at the base of the venue, just below the finish corral. Vendors are responsible for their own infrastructure (tent, table, power, etc). Ranchstyle will provide waste management services. Camping at the Ranchstyle venue will be a great experience and fun & exciting weekend. Pre registration will be required and camp spots will be limited to 50 vehicles. There is plenty of space for 50 camp parties. Camp fires will not be permitted. Ranchstyle will have a camp host on site at all times. Camping will be permitted Thursday, May 3rd – Monday, May 7th.

The lot space we are using is approximately 11,500 square ft. The Expo is free to the public. There will be bike shops showcasing the newest gear and bike manufacturers demoing their bikes. The expo will have a fun interactive element to it as well.

The Shop Stop is also a shuttle stop pick up for patrons going to the main venue. There will be a checkin point where patrons exchange their online ticket for a credential to allow them access on the bus and to the venue. Anyone can participate in the expo, however, only ticketed patrons can get on the bus. Parking for the Shop stop will be located at 3rd Street & Ute Avenue.
