At the end of the day, people will drive where they can afford to drive. It’s all economics.
Most people don’t care about their CO2 emissions. They care about their finances.
Here’s the tired old beast:
Maybe mtb’s are the reason why I’m still single!?!? You don’t meet many girls when you’re always building and riding in the woods. And the ones you do meet usually aren’t "perfect 10’s", if you catch my drift 😀.
Thanks for the info 😀 Yeah trek7k we’ll do some rides I’ll bring my XC bike for that awesome georgia singletrack!
Thanks to CraigCreekRider, I’ve got some more info. Looks like I’ll be riding Carter’s Lake in Georgia:
Might ride Raccoon Mountain:
I might check out Sequatchie Trails Training Center
Probably check out Paris Mountain South Carolina
I’ll check out Ohill, Charlottesville, VA if there’s no snow
But the place I most want to go is Windrock. Even we’ll start at Windrock ride there until we want to ride something else, then we’ll check out those other places. Windrock first, then Carter’s Lake, then Paris Mountain, then Ohill. Sounds like a plan.
looks like a fun but very difficult ride. he looks like he’s having a hoot!
Great sites. mtbBill has been everywhere! the other one has some cool pics too. Thnx.
Awesome news. Singletrack in the heart of a city is a real blessing. Toronto has many miles already and many more are built every year.

Whats up with the stair rides and hucking 10′ drops to flat? Not sure if I would huck 10′ to flat, but surely 3′ to 8′ to flat. Stairs with gaps or just stairs in general are soooo much fun. 😄 😄 😄
I love my urban loading docks and wall rides even though I am still working on the skinny wall rides. Transitions are sweet for hucking, but flat will do just as much. 😆 😆 😆[/quote:3viso2l8]
Meh been there done that with the urban drops to flat and stair gaps. IMHO anything to transition is way more fun, smoother and WAY easier on your bike. Nothing busts parts like drops to flat. I once flat-spotted a doublewide front rim 😮 Now I just hit smooth jumps and drops.

I’ll start.What are the important things to know before beginning to build a trail from the very start?
Excellent question Steve. It just so happens that the first installment of my series, Trailbuilding 101, is entitled Before the Shovel: First Steps. I’d be happy to answer specific questions after my articles are released if your questions aren’t answered by the end of the series. Cheers!
I met element22 2 weeks ago through a friend when he came to my trails. We got to talking and Syd said he would like to do an article on my trails. I’m almost done part one of a series of articles I’m writing for singletracks entitled "Trailbuilding 101". I’m looking forward to contributing more if you like my first article!
