Bike park opens on Snoqualmie Ridge

"I feel like I just gave birth," exclaimed Dan Saimo as he made the final preparations for the opening of the Fischer Creek Bike Park Saturday, July 14. Eighty youths brought their parents, siblings, bicycles and helmets to try the newest addition to Snoqualmie recreational opportunities - a mountain bike skills park next to the rock climbing wall at Fischer Creek Park on Snoqualmie Ridge.
