FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The group behind a recently-opened, popular mountain bike park in Flagstaff is about ready to break ground on a second phase this summer.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1RcZr0i) the Flagstaff Biking Organization is behind the Fort Tuthill Bike Park is looking to donors to fund added features.

About $130,000 has been spent so far on a project that’ll cost between $400,000 and $600,000 when finished.

Coconino County supervisors approved a policy Tuesday that allows FBO and third-party groups like it to solicit sponsorships and donors for county-owned facilities.

The $6,500 raised through crowdfunding was used to design phase two, which FBO board member Anthony Quintile says will add features like pump tracks and a cyclecross training circuit. Mountain Sports Flagstaff and Patagonia contributed a $5,000 grant to the project.
