Know your trails.......
Reading some of the latest comments, it seems that there's quite a few riders that either don't know the names of the new trails or still refer to them by their own personal names. Our regular sunday mtb group has made-up names for all the trails that we've ridden over the years, but thanks to Travis Deane (his great mtb guidebook) and the recent naming the trails competition, we now know the official names of all our fav trails old and new. It's important that everyone embraces these new names, calls them by name on the trail and when chatting on the pmbc website,'coz I think when you know your trail names, you're more likely to take a sense of ownership and responsibility for them and look after them better.
On the ''looking after your trails'' theme, as Murray, Paddy and Cam (these guys are the legendary and voluntary lead trail builders of the new K.C. circuit and others)have said, 'if every mtb'er (who rides these trails) gave up just ONE sunday a year to help build/maintain the trails, then we would have more than enough LEGAL trails to keep everyone happy'.
So, know your trails, call them by their correct names and get off your butts and commit to helping just once a year to build, maintain and take ownership of OUR fantastic trail network.
