Janesville Velo Club is starting the public fundraising campaign for the Palmer Park Mountain Bike Trails and Skills Area, through the Community Foundation of Southern Wisconsin

The project is in partnership with the City of Janesville, Janesville Velo Club, Rock Trail Coalition, Michael’s Cycles and the City of Janesville Parks and Recreation Division.

Private donations of $55,000.00 of the $260,000.00 project cost has been raised from foundations, businesses and individuals here in the community to date.

The Janesville Velo Club has made a down payment securing a Spring 2023 build and with the public support they are hoping to have a complete build at that time.

Securing the $205,000.00 balance by November 1, 2022 will assure a complete build of the 6 areas of off road single track courses proposed for the 37 acre area in Palmer Park.

Attached is a complete overview of the project and copy of the mailer that is being released today.
