The Maple Street Bike Park Committee was formed in February of 2010 with the goal of bringing a high quality, public access Mountain Bike and BMX Freestyle park to Essex Junction.

In addition to sponsorship we are pursuing grants and continuing with grassroots efforts to raise funds, build awareness, and gain exposure for sponsors.

For current sponsors, we have provided diverse exposure through tabling events at the Vermont Mountain Bike Festival, Banff Film Festival, Essex Junction Farmers Markets and on-line exposure with our Facebook page and our website.

All donations are tax deductible through our fiscal agent, Essex CHIPS, and our first phase of building began in the Spring of 2012.

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.
