MORE Rocks  //   Wednesday - January 5, 2005

Anyone reading this site for a decent amount of time knows I've been pushing trail advocacy, railing on riders who don't stay off the trails when wet and generally trying to get more people involved with building and saving the trails. It's only in the last few years that I've really started hitting hard on this as I noticed more trail users and more trail damage. Now, I am not a joiner by nature, don't really feel the need to belong to any group, but I've been an IMBA member for a while and a member of our local group for a few years too. My main reasons: power in numbers for starters and getting MTBers credit for the work they do. I've met a lot of good people too, but that wasn't my initial motivation.

If you stay on top of the IMBA news flow you'll know every year they issue a report card on the state of the trails in various areas, identifying the good and the bad, and they rate a few other issues. This year our local trail advocacy group MORE was named the number one advocacy group on the move. There's a lot of people volunteering time and effort and this has made us top dog. IMBA even has a write up on their site, check it out.

So, to all of you trail advocates and volunteers, local and far away, I raise my cup of morning Joe to you (too early for beer). You rock. Thanks for the effort, especially the MORE people who put us at the top.

Thanks for Nothing  //   Tuesday - January 4, 2005

Since I seem to be on a tirade about the gov't and their impact on our riding, this photo is well timed. Sent in by my buddy Dave
