Really, all this groaning?
I have been reading posts on this board for years, and this thread has pushed me to finally sign up and hop on the keyboard…
The DNV is recognizing biking on Fromme and working on improving trails, read that again and let it sink in.
How is this not a good thing?
They are upgrading a "Hiking" trail that the mtn bikers are allowed to use, this isn't the other way around. Lord Baden Powell's vision was to get people into the outdoors, doubt he would care if they were walking on nicely built cedar board walks for small sections of it, or loose rock and rooty trail. Its far from paved. Enjoy the work and give the hard workers the praise they deserve.
Agree with the post earlier about "Ladies", not much of a stink about the wood work that covers that trail now, and that was a much bigger trail difficulty change, but we all love Digger and the fact that trail work was happening. So lets use those same glasses to view the DNV work. Being grateful it is happening!
And Its not 800K for JUST mtn bike trail work (also i have heard the number was more around 500K), its money to be spent on the ENTIRE mtn. regardless of the #, without the facts speculating on $$ spent is pointless with out the facts. Get the facts and then come back.
Thank you James for posting the updates on the work that is being done, please keep it up! And a big thank you for all the hard work that the trail builders are putting in.
For anyone that bitches about the work being done, please also post the hours of trail work you have contributed to Fromme, then your complaints may be taken a little more seriously.
And give your head a shake!
