    Albion Hills Conditions And Rejuvenation

    Please be advised I am posting this information as a concerned Albion local and friend of Chico Racing...I do not represent Chico Racing or the TRCA but i am staying at a holiday inn express tonight.

    EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY THE TRAILS OF ALBION HILLS ARE CLOSED TO MOUNTAIN BIKING.

    In a joint decision by Chico racing and the TRCA the trails will be closed for 'repair', (tentatively) reopening on Sunday June 28th.

    PLEASE RESPECT THIS CLOSURE.

    During this time the necessary 'repairs' will be made. Weather and general success permitting, the trails will open on schedule Sunday morning.

    If necessary and at the discretion of Chico Racing and the TRCA, the closure may be extended. Please check here, with Chico Racing or with Albion Hills staff.

    NOTES:

    THE TUESDAY RACE SERIES IS CANCELLED FOR JUNE 23.

    Explanation not necessary and self evident. All full-season riders will and can enjoy FREE entry to the wednesday series at King if they are so inclined.

    OPEN TRAIL MAINTENANCE DAY ON JUNE 27th.

    In a rare move by the super-hermit Sean he (and Chico) have announced an open invitation to volunteers to assist in trail maintenance.

    Those interested should RSVP (in advance) to sean@chicoracing.com
    Work will begin at 10am sharp at the main chalet.
    Bring grubbing tools (hoes, hard rakes) and an IQ above the common house fly.

    Once again I dont speak for Sean, but suffice to say "I told you so'ers" should stay home...I don't see the point...

    Look forward to seeing you out there.

    Thanks for your consideration and understanding.

    Sincerely,

    Part of the Problem.

    I'm a totally dark as far as trail building but the thought of swinging hoes has perked my attention. I have put in my request for a day release pass for Saturday from the powers to be and I expect to be in attendance.

    REST ASSURED...you wont be allowed to f-up the trails.

    volunteers will be broken up into managable groups with a lead or something.

    sean will be circulating to ensure even thugs such at the nuckingfuts do good!

    This has also been posted to the Lapdog's forum. I plan to be there provided my concussion is feeling better by then, I'll bring some tools too.

    I took a walk up S1 on Sunday morning, if the damage there is any indication as to what the rest of the course looks like we have a lot of work to do.

    I wish I could make it up there to help out, but I'm flying out Saturday morning.

    I didn't race, but I'd like to show my support for what the Chico boys are doing. They have handled this exactly how they should have. Kudos and good karma for that and to everyone who gives their time Saturday.

    Rain Shiner

    Blame it on enduramil as to way I am now in your "we screwed the trails and now we can't ride thread." If you get pushed and do not push back are you not going in the wrong direction ????

    enuramil asking me to help fix a problem that I called from a long way off while you saw no need to ask your race promoter as to how they would handle it is well dumb...sort like asking me to take down signs, pocket garbage and fix trails from a race that had no BUSINESS being there. Yes I am still riding by signs on my trails that I was assured would be removed right after the race.

    I have yet to hear anything positive from you about how the run a rain or shine event??

    Team Monster would gladly be there to pitch in if it wasn't Day Zero of BCBR. Thanks in advance to everyone that does make it out there for the rebuild. Albion is like a second home to us!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    This is not a 'we screwed the trails and now we can't ride thread', but a 'lets deal responsibly with the consequences of the fun we had on the weekend thread' I figured this would be exactly the sort of thread you'd like to see (since you keep complaining about how things werent handled responsibly in your area). I guess I was wrong. In an ideal world the trails would have been dry; they were not, and things were handled in a realistic and practical fashion culminating in a request for help to restore the trails to their pre-race shape. IMO there is little room for criticism or negative thought in this thread so unless you want to come out and offer your support maybe you should refrain from further posts.

    Very well put...Take the negativity to another thread...This is great to see the community, racing, riding, volunteers, whatever, working to fix the damage.

    you have YOUR trails? did you win a lottery or just feeling weird today?

    Albion Hills trails will be fixed and we'll be racing there again... i am having difficulties supporting your views. Yes, we are all concerned about the well being of the trail system, but not to the point of being trail Nazis... That is kinda counterproductive...

    do you drive your car at all? even though hit is polluting the air and depleting the ozone in the atmosphere or whatever???

    don't be hypocritical...

    It is good to see the effort being put out to rebuild the trails but the only responsible thing to do was to call off the race before it started. Most of the damage was done in the first 4-6 hours. No mtber in their right mind would ever ride trails that wet if it wasn't a race. I chose not to race at the last minute because it was easy to predict the outcome and I did not want to participate in the 1000 man gang rape of the trails. I was shocked and appalled that Chico let this race start and proceed to destroy not only the trails but the Chalet are as well. For those who don't know Albion Hills holds event such as weddings there. I truly don't care if all the race enthusiasts flame me I had to get this off my chest. No race is worth the damage that was done to those trails. I hope The TRCA and Albion Hills will put some sort of rain clause in future contracts with race promoters.
    If I can get this sat off work ( which is highly unlikely after taking last weekend off) I will be there to help out anyway I can because Albion Hills is my favorite place to ride and I would like to give something back.
    I hope everyone involved feels it was worth it because I surly don't. There I have said my peice This is the last post I will make on the subject. I you dissagree with me fine if you want to flame me thats fine to just think about what I said.

    I called you out because of your behaviour. You *****, snivel, and whine about race director's not giving a rats ass. Yet after things went south on the weekend a race director actually is going in to repair trail. Which funnily enough is the same thing you whined about in a previous thread.

    Yet despite Chico Racing actually doing what you snivel about you continue to snivel. So what is the message here? It's simple really, they do trail work they *****, they don't you *****. So no matter what they do you aren't happy. So the simplest solution would be to do nothing as you will still *****.

    Yes I get it, you hate me. Thats great because I love the fact you hate me and am quite comfortable with that. In fact it warms my heart. And yes I'm an asswhole.

    No it wasn't. Most of the damage was done after 6:30 pm when the last lot of rain started to fall. Prior to that most of the course was recovering nicely. The first section of the course was not recovering and Chico closed off that portion at, what, 6pm?

    I had more to say but I've changed my mind about attempting to express it

    Please be patient with me this might take some time to rub mud in the face of all the people who do not think they need to worry about what a race promoter will do with someone's volunteer time, but this is alot easier then building sweet narrow singletrack, sounds like you dummies are going to find out.

    osokolo "do you drive your car at all? " actually a truck and I heard there is a new 400 series highway in the albion area, but I do not want to get any mud on it, so let me know when the highway is clean.

    I call them my trails because I care most about them, not because I don't like riding with lots of people from our community.

    On a positive note...congrats to everyone for showing their support. This is a very responsible move from Chico. The damage is done, and there is no changing that, so it's good to see people rallying to fix things up. I hope to make it.

    Palgrave Conservation Area

    I am sure
    mtbmeister
    RaceDayRush.com
    was going to post something like this, guess he is a little busy with his MTB business.

    Please drop by Palgrave, just a little north, west of Albion for some sweet narrow singletrack Albion may be screwed for awhile, but Palgrave is ready to be pounded.

    mtbmeister I am looking to start up a spring racing thingy, and I know how much you are into helping promote racing, Do you see any problem with ramming a race through that little gem rain or shine next spring.

    Please let me know who to contact at TRCA, it will be muddy, but most important it will be fun. Is that not negative enough for you???

    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Puckering Lane

    Maybe move the Albion race thingy to Puckering Lane. It is like a narrow singletrack compared to Albion's stuff.

    Sorry Everyone but the list grows so everyone will need to stay inline. sheep are so easy to deal with.

    Thrash NY in short MY trails were damaged by a race they support and they laughed at me, need more info????

    Beereppc"This is not a 'we screwed the trails and now we can't ride thread', but a 'lets deal responsibly with the consequences of the fun we had on the weekend thread'
    Did it really feel good to do that to a trail system??? You need to try the Palgrave stuff.

    Omg

    Shut the hell up!!!!!

    Nobody else sees eye to eye with you. you are obviously in the minority.
    lots of us like riding/racing at Albion. If it happens to rain on a weekend that an event is planned there is nothing any of us can do about it. None of us knew what the future held in store, but you cant cancel a race every time you think it might rain. we know now that it did rain, and some damage was done. We can also go in and fix it, and we might even end up with better trails.
    hey, the glaciers did alot more damage than this and we all kinda like how southern ontario turned out after that.

    get off your high horse!

    Snow Birds

    The snow birds will be putting on a show tomorrow night in Orillia. They are good to go after being grounded for an ejection seat problem. In case of an emergency they need to do something before they crash and burn. Kind of like running a mountain bike through the mud and stopping it only after the trails are trashed.

    hey, the glaciers did allot more damage than this and we all kinda like how southern ontario turned out after that.
    Good one you get to go to the front of the line Dover, is your first name Ben???
    How long did it take to recover from the Glaciers???
    Pizza I told you this could happen but you would not listen, but at least you managed to post something true, atta boy!!! "The damage is done, and there is no changing that"

    Please stop, please stop. you say...well....
    O KAY repeat after me " I will only race at Hardwood Hills if I choose to race in Oro-Medonte" And I will go away and leave you people to your mess.

    lots of us like riding/racing at Albion. If it happens to rain on a weekend that an event is planned there is nothing any of us can do about it. None of us knew what the future held in store, but you cant cancel a race every time you think it might rain. we know now that it did rain, and some damage was done. We can also go in and fix it, and we might even end up with better trails.
    hey, the glaciers did alot more damage than this and we all kinda like how southern ontario turned out after that.

    get off your high horse!


    I see eye to eye with him.

    Most of the people here feel bad about a trail that got damaged and want to do there part to help fix it.Thats awesome. All will run home at the end of the day and tell all their friends how they did their part to fix a damaged trail. Most will do no more trail work this year or ever again. However all will be out riding somewhere next weekend.

    Start thinking about the big picture of how the trail got there in the first place. Most trails are put in by a handfull of people quietly doing many hours/years of work for the sole enjoyment of riding.

    If 50 people who have not ever done any trail maintenance in their lives come out on Saturday to help put things right, how can that be a bad thing? If one of those 50 people volunteers their time regularly after Saturday for trail building, then that is f***** brilliant. How's that for big picture.

    Oh and by the way, Phat Tyred, shut the **** up.

    Good to see that everyone is stepping up to the plate.

    Just something to think about....remember the 24hr race at Kelso? Its never been back, and that was one of the nails in the coffin for 24hr Adrenalin group.

    Packed up the next day after a major storm/destroying the trails....and rode off into the sunset. Not good.

    hmmm... keyboard warrior...

    is this how you get aroused?

    why don't you come out on Saturday and repeat this in person?

    otherwise, you stated your case and most of use don't give a flying PHUCK about your feelings. Start doing what you preach - yourself, and maybe you will regain some credibility.

    In the meantime, you may as well stop dreaming that anyone would be remotely frightened by your toughness. The dog that barks doesn't bite.

    Come out on Saturday and show your care for the trails. Stop barking at the moon...

    You stupid phuck, can you not do anything right.
    Stay out of the mud dummy and repeat after me " I will only race at Hardwood Hills if I choose to race in Oro-Medonte."

    Just thinking... what's the relationship with the 'Albion Hills Powers at be' and event organizers regarding the ability to cancel a race? Could the Albion Hills people have stepped in earlier to shut it down? Were they monitoring the trails during the event?

    was going to post something like this, guess he is a little busy with his MTB business.

    Please drop by Palgrave, just a little north, west of Albion for some sweet narrow singletrack Albion may be screwed for awhile, but Palgrave is ready to be pounded.

    mtbmeister I am looking to start up a spring racing thingy, and I know how much you are into helping promote racing, Do you see any problem with ramming a race through that little gem rain or shine next spring.

    Please let me know who to contact at TRCA, it will be muddy, but most important it will be fun. Is that not negative enough for you???

    Thanks in advance for all your help.
    I really wish I could avoid such narrow minded approaches as yours. Funny you mention my business, which if you knew anything about is free to anyone who wishes to view what we post there. Good for you for doing your homework on that. I must be the devil promoter's brother to you.

    Also, we are not a race promotor organizing events, only the sport that many of the posters here love. Our site is a becoming a destination for those of us who enjoy what it is we do. Sorry that you're bothered by our promotion of something you are vehemently opposed to. You clearly have missed the boat that "some" of these trail systems are there and stay there due to race revenue. If you take your head out of your @ss for a couple of minutes, I bet you could think of some trails that you right where their existence, condition, and facilities that accompany them are a result of the race community. I love to ride just to ride too, but will not be called out for participating in an event on wet trails. And nor did I find this event particularly fun until it was called and I could have a couple of pops with my teammates in the RV.

    I have nothing to do with organizing events, and don't feel the need to entertain your jack@ss approach to chastising anyone that supports something you don't endeavor to do. You have called out everyone on this forum that just happens to like racing or participates in these events. I really hope I, or another one of my friends from this community whom you've blasted, doesn't run into you on a trail looking for help...I guess we wouldn't know who you were unfortunately and would still help being this is the kind of people "most" of us are.

    As other have suggested, you are truly a small minority...Others in that minority just have much more tact and diplomacy...

    It is likely that they could...But let's understand that Sean has extensive experience with these and other trails and can likely discern when it's time better than a TRCA staff member depending on who they are. And while a couple of other posters don't like this, it is a fact that the TRCA makes a hell of a lot of money from these events...So you're damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    Yep, good point on the experience.

    Wish I could be there for the clean-up on saturday to help out, and learn a little about trail building. Stupid exams!

    This isn't a debate anymore, this is now sporting.

    This mud argument reminds me.

    I need to practice my Cyclocross technique as per Veteran Youth's suggestion. I have an exellent mud bog area to practice in. I think tomorrow is a Cross day.
