PURCELLVILLE, Va., May 24, 2022 — Join the Town of Purcellville and the Caudill family for a groundbreaking ceremony for Adam’s Bike Park. The ceremony will start at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1 at the site of the new bike park near the water tower at 311 N. Maple Avenue. Parking for the ceremony is available at Loudoun Valley High School. Attendees are encouraged to wear Adam’s favorite color, red, to the ceremony.
The bike park is named in memory of Adam Caudill, a 15-year old boy who tragically lost his life in 2021. Adam loved to ride his red bike through Purcellville. The ceremony, which will be held on his 17th birthday, will include a blessing of the land, remarks from friends and family, the groundbreaking, and a chance for guests to share a message on a banner that will be displayed at the park.
When completed, Adam’s Bike Park will be accessible from North Maple Avenue and from the W&OD Trail. The park will include ramps and pathways for non-motorized,
2-wheeled bicycles. The bike park will honor the memory of this young man and provide a new park for Purcellville residents that will encourage young people to get outside and enjoy cycling.
