who we are...Kahlil Zaloom

kahlilbio"I have been riding bikes of all styles for the past 27 years, building trails for the past 7 and working on this project as co-chair for a year and a half. I started racing BMX when I was 11 and after years of racing mountain bikes I started looking for new riding experiences.  At 35 I came back to my roots and began riding street, skateparks and dirt jumps, only this time on bigger wheels.
I believe strongly in the ethic of working for what you want and this project has been a lot of work but has taught me a ton of lessons. I am super excited with the opportunity to bring this park to our town and grateful to have the support of a  progressive parks and rec department like EJRP as well as the support of Essex CHIPS and VMBA!
Thanks to all of the great volunteers and sponsors for their commitment!"

I got involved with the Maple Street Bike Park project back in February of 2010, and am now the Co-Chair of the committee. I cannot wait for this park to happen, It will be a really good asset to Maple Street Park, and the Community as a whole.
