Daly City's Mussel Rock BMX future (someday?) track info page
The futureDaly City BMX track (next to San Francisco) is stuck!
Location was supposed to be the southwest corner of Daly City at the old Mussel Rock dumpsite.
Tangent off of Westline Drive in Daly City, behind the Mussel Rock transfer station. Off of 280, take highway 1 south to Edgemar (Pacifica) exit, turn West, then turn right on Palmetto, follow to Mussel Rock.
December 1999: The Sanction choice is still up in the air, but the choice seems to have swung from originally thinking NBL to probably going ABA, to maybe giving NBL another slim chance, we'll see...
The Mussel Rock site overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
Some practice trails should be be included in the area design, we think.
Also, either in or next to the track, we may include X-game type dirt-jumping jumps (woohoo!).
The track will not be too long or too short at no more than 1,000 feet.
Pictures of the site and more details are coming soon, check back at least every week!
January 14th,2000: I sat down with the Recreation Dept track coordinator, the Broadmoor Bike Shop owners, and the track/landscape Architect.
We discussed what the track needs are and land requirements, as well as air and soil quality issues.
Then we went out tpo the track site and surveyed the area for layout and design, which will include the BMX racetrack and X-Game style jumps all in a fenced area (provided by Specialized Bicycles). We plan on including at least two ability levels of X-jumps, too. More later.
February 16th,2000: We REALLY need startup money for the track. So far, Specialized has offered a few thousand dollars, but we need several thousand more for the track's land architect, fencing, gate, starting pad and other things!
If anyone wants to help and get great publicity/advertising in return (we plan on cross-advertising with the ESPN XGames and more!), contact Steve (me) at 415-682-7261, Greg Johnson at Daly City Recreation at 650-991-8001, or Broadmoor Bicycles in Daly City/Colma and ask for Regi or Roger.
