Crozet Cycling Club – New Kits to Order

Crozet has some remarkable roads on which to ride bicycles. Truly, some amazing opportunities.

If you’re interested in a ride, and want some options, please let us know, as we’re always happy to help.

The past year has seen great growth in the Crozet Cycling Club. We now have new kits and t-shirts!

Have you Read the Downtown Crozet District Code?

Bike Racks are Required in Downtown Crozet – Piedmont Place

I haven’t yet read the Downtown Crozet District Code, but I’m going to.  Actually being informed is more useful and powerful.

Read the Downtown Crozet District Code it. It’s right here.

You’re familiar with the 2010 Crozet Master Plan, too, right?

(it’s also on the County’s site, but I don’t trust them to not move it somewhere else on the site, and break the link)

So many questions about this project … how will schools be affected? Traffic? General real estate market?

Dig in. Learn more.

 

You can see all the files for this project here on the County’s site, but for now, putting them here is a bit easier and more efficient.

What’s Going on At Crozet Park?

I ride through Crozet Park all the time and there is a lot happening! So much so that I asked Kim Guenther with the Park to give us an update. She was gracious to quickly email me something and it’s taken me a couple weeks to get around to posting; I’m sorry.


What’s Happening at the Park

If you’ve been by Crozet Park lately, you’ve no doubt noticed the mountains of dirt sitting south of the upper playground. Some have guessed this might be a new BMX dirt bike course or, an obstacle for a Tough Mudder event. Or, just for fun, the Park Board decided to dig up the old pool near the upper playground that was shut down and covered over when the new pool was built in 1996.  But no, none of these things are true. Instead, we are redesigning and improving the Park’s parking.  

The project kicked off in early July and we’ve pulled together key points into an FAQ. So, if you’re wondering what the heck is going on at your community park, read on…

  1. Why are we renovating and expanding Park parking?

Surveys of Park users have helped make clear how current parking is not adequate.

Anyone who has been to the Park, especially in the spring and summer, can attest to the many challenges of parking.  Park usage continues to increase especially as new amenities – dog park and perimeter trail — are added, resulting in parking that is less than adequate. To put this in context, traffic volume coming into the community-owned 22-acre Crozet Park is second only to the County-owned Darden Towe Park, a 113-acre park in Charlottesville.

6 Years to Get a Sidewalk in Crozet

But hey, at least we’re getting a sidewalk!  Remember when the sidewalk grant was announced in 2010? And we talked about it in 2011?

Thanks, really, to those at the County and the community (and those who straddle both!) for continuing the push. Unfortunately, my kids are now well out of Crozet Elementary, but I look forward to seeing more kids riding bikes and walking to school!

And thanks to those at Crozet Elementary who continue to push and advocate for walking and biking to school!

Note: accompanying Facebook post.
