The Dig Team – Waterbury Bike Park

April 30th, 2013

I photographed The Dig Team working in the Waterbury Bike Park last week for a gallery in the Saturday edition of the Times Argus

The Dig Team is a small, dedicated, group of volunteer riders who spend a few days a week throughout the summer caring for the Waterbury Bike Park. Located on River Rd. within view of the Waterbury Ice Center, the Waterbury Bike Park is in its fourth year, after being destroyed by Tropical Storm Irene it was wiped flat and completely re-designed last summer.. Head Developer and Coordinator James Bordeaux says “In the early, early spring we try to come down and clean everything up.” Then, throughout the summer The Dig Team “does some maintenance, makes sure things are safe, put it all together, and make it fun for everybody.” For more information visit waterburybikepark.webs.com
