Aptos Post Office Jumps Flattened

Aptos Post Office Jumps Flattened

Today, the Aptos Post Office Jumps rode into history, as bulldozers from Barry Swenson Builders arrived to flatten the 15 year old earthen bicycle jumps. The move had been anticipated for quite some time, as it had been announced this past November that the Aptos post office jumps would be closing this February.

Several members of the community have recently come together to fight the re-development of Aptos Village, and removal of the Post Office Jumps is the very first step in the process. A group of local area residents gathered on Tuesday morning to protest Aptos Village re-development. Those protesting were a mixture of mountain bikers hoping to keep the jumps open, and the area residents forming to oppose the new Aptos village.

Many in the mountain biker community are reportedly at peace with the loss of the Aptos post office jumps, and are already working on finding a new home. They have built a web site dedicated to the effort, postofficejumps.org.
