Fromme needs a resident Predator type being that lives in the trees and subsists on Trail Nazis and endangered frogs.

A couple friends are looking into the feasibility of hidden motion-activated cams. It may sound a little extreme but there's been some weird shit going on lately. Could be kinda fun too.

They're not even that expensive. You've got my $40 coming on the weekend.

Pretty close to downtown and not far from two popular riding areas in PG.

The interesting thing about MC's Facebook timeline is that almost all of her anti mountain bike posts have no replies or likes (except for vandeman). Even her friends think she is a kook.

If anybody does buy a camera make sure it uses a no-glow infrared flash.

Many cameras use a glowing infrared or regular flash to take low light photos. The flash going off will quickly give away the location of the camera. Also, some cameras make a noise when they fire. Not good if you want total stealth.

Email TAP@nsmba.ca to adopt a trail in 2014

They'll be able to tell you if anyone has the permit to work on the trail.

It looks like Steed has done a couple days this year on it already.

Apparently, a bunch of smiling mountain bikers volunteering their time to repair trails is a terrible thing, based on her photos and comments.

Trail work is a gate way drug to getting stoked.

I've heard of MC, whispered about on NSMB since I was lurking around here, before I joined the forum. I don't think I've ever seen a more classic case of NIMBYism in my lifeā€¦

Ride, don't slide.

They were back at it. Rode Skull Sunday, nothing on the trail, but rode by on Monday and looked down to see a bunch of logs and rocks blocking the trail. Hiked down to clear a bunch but not all. Seems this person has full intention to maintain his dickheadedness. Hope the camera idea is still in the works.

If it is just Skull getting picked on I would guess that it is a homeowner who backs on to the trail or is near the exit.
