Stop the Bike Park was formerly called Stop Full Send Bike Ranch. We are a Colorado registered non-profit that was formed specifically to stop the Bike Park development.
We are joined by hundreds of community members who are very concerned about this project and have stepped up by volunteering their time to conduct research and make sure all information we use is factual.
I am 5th generation Californian. I grew up in rural Northern Californian foothills and spent my youth enjoying the quietness of my grandparents cabin on a small lake near Lake Tahoe where I saw how big business has changed the atomosphere for Lake Tahoe but the areas like Donner Lake has stayed more rural and remote. After high school, I moved to Alberta Canada where I recieved a double major in Cross-Cultural Psychology and Religion and Theology. I also met my husband up there. Again seeing the changes that have occured in the small mountain towns has been devasting in my perspective. My husband and I moved to Colorado in 2010 as we decided this was to be our final home to raise our family. We moved to a wonderful original log cabin on Shadow Mountain in 2019 on our 12th wedding anniversary! Currently, I work for a behavioral health firm down in Littleton as an Operational Systems Manager where I contract with behavioral health clinicians, work on efficiencies around processes externally and internally, and find ways to help the community as a whole. Besides loving my ferrets, cats, dog, husband, and son, I also enjoy spending time outside by our creek drinking a nice glass of something cold, hiking, fishing, and kayaking.

As a kid growing up in Brooklyn, I always had a fascination with Colorado. Nearly forty years later, I still find myself on Shadow Mountain Drive, living in my house that was built in 1935. My husband and I raised our two daughters here and we never stopped appreciating the environmental beauty of our community.
Now, as the Co-Chair of Stop Full Send Bike Ranch, I am fighting to preserve the safety of my neighborhood because although a scenic road, Shadow Mountain has never been a safe road. The proposal of FSBR will be a detriment to our community’s safety, as our road will not be able to handle the increase in traffic. Like the legacy of my historical house, surrounded by magnificent wildlife, I stand organized and united to fight for my community against the significant effects FSBR will have on our environment and safety.

I’m a 4th generation Colorado native. Although I grew up in Englewood, thanks to my dad, we spent as much time in the Colorado mountains as we could while i was growing up. That is where my love of the forest got me hooked. I graduated Cherry Creek High School, went on to CU where I received a degree in Mechanical Design. I’ve been married to my wife, Marianne, for 46 years. We have two grown sons, who are both married, and we have 3 grandchildren. In 1999 we realized our dream of living in the mountains and moved to Conifer near the top of Shadow Mountain Drive. We are truly blessed to live in such a beautiful place. I retired from my position of Director of Sales at the end of 2019 from a custom fabrication company that builds high-end serving counters found in corporate cafeterias at many of the largest companies, universities and health care facilities in the world. I now volunteer at Staunton State Park and spend as much time as I possibly can doing the things I love in the great outdoors. This includes camping, hiking, fishing, snow shoeing, kayaking, golfing, playing games and hanging out with the family.
