CBC has gone to shit. And Metro won't let anyone work on it! I still enjoy it, but DH bike only. As you note, the rest of Seymour is great. Also getting very dry and dusty on Fromme. Same as last year - the rocky/armored trails are holding up better.
Why are you saying MV won't let anyone work on this trail? According to your post in the thread about the condition of CBC MV's answer doesn't support this intention at all.
_Thank you for emailing us.
The wood structures on CBC, as mentioned in the newsletter, have been deemed un-safe as the structures have reached their life-span. Over the years, Metro has developed standards to not replace wood structures unless over a bog/swamp, or creek crossing and to decommission un-safe structures. Building wood structures was a popular building technique many years ago; although we realize some users still enjoy this experience, the up-keep of these structures was excessive. We have over 100kms of trail within the LSCR within 5,668 hectare area which carried a lot of wood work from the 90âs to early 2000âs.
CBC will under-go many assessments which will include environmental, safety, user ship level, and user experience this year. The plan for now is to remove the risk and do the various assessments for this trail.
The LSCR Team_
They are assessing this trail and if the NSMBA or any other group wishes to be involved I'm sure they are.
Considering how secretive the NSMBA is with their plans who knows what they're doing. Unless there is something you know that you're not sharing?
I do agree with you about the rocked and more natural trails, the do hold up much better then the new school flow trails once it gets really dry. Which is why we need both.
