    2 NEW SA PARKS TO MOUNTAIN BiKE IN!!!

    Rancho Diana Park and Medallion Park are two new additions to the SA park system.
    Please petition and make your voices heard to have these parks bike friendly before they are finished built, and we never get a chance to ride them!
    Rancho Diana Park is 9 times the size of OP Park and is right across 1604!!!
    the elevation changes and potential are better than Govt. But it could all be gone before it opens. Can we get some volunteers for petitions and making our voice heard
    Huh?

    Perhaps someone could make a presentation at a Parks Board meeting. See the link below for the schedule. It's possible these parks will be protected habitat for the Warbler.

    The Wabler doesn't pay taxes!!! Lol
    seriously, I would like to attend a city planning comittee meeting and see if we can get others to attend as well. If anyone has ever been to Eisenhower park; they can attest that it is one of the best parks around with great trails but no bikes allowed! I don't want this to happen to Rancho Diana or Medallion
    Huh?

    how long does it typically take the city to go from aquiring land to actually opening a park?

    i couldn't find any info on an active project?

    a narrow ribbon of singletrack would be much more warbler friendly than that mulched and grushed granite paths in a nature preserve like you'll find at Frederich Park. Think about it... they have to run at least a gator with a trailer through there to re-mulch. clearly other people have more sway than the bikers/trail runners of the world.

    That's because he charges at least 25 fiddy.

    BTW they've had the land for awhile I do believe....just been holding onto it in an undeveloped state. Isn't it all part of the parcels SAWS/Bexar Cty/SAPAR acquired to protect the recharge zone?

    They do the same thing out here...s;aughter land needelssy for the birders (I live in a resort town).


    Plus, we have a gazillion miles of state-owned trails, and despite a state law saying cyclists can ride on them, the local "horse mafia" has figured out a way to legally keep cyclists off of them.


    The horse people are worse than the Taliban.

    I remember riding San Antonio Ranch and what is now Goverment Canyon for years before it was turned into a park

    there are probably a few people who have secrete trails in these areas today. Crownridge was like this for a long time. Unless you had a guide you couldn't find the trails

    Holy crap this is good news. Medallion is basically within the Hills and Dales neighborhood. After riding, you could literally just roll down White Fawn to Hills and Dales Ice House. (at 40 mph with no pedaling needed none the less) Its also possible and maybe more likely that the entrance and parking for Medallion might be off Babcock just south of Chase Hill. I believe that draw is SAPAR property as well.

    I don't know the specifics on the Warbler issue, but SAPAR currently has the Medallion property very securely fenced off and has signs up making sure everybody keeps out.

    Eisenhower park is a beautiful park, I enjoy running there, but in my opinion it just doesn't have enough trails for riding, not to mention there are several sections that would be hike-a-bike only as I don't see ANYONE making it up or down those areas on a bike!
