    Rumor Has it there is a new trail being built on Long Island

    So far I have herd:

    It has been blown off
    Its In gordan Hieghts in the "Epicenter"
    5 mile main loop with Black diamond off shoots
    A lot of sticker bushes had to be cut

    Others have said "its in corum"

    we will see

    The New trail is david Orton. We gave it a shot the other day. The trails has some really great down hills

    But in my humble opinion lacks the flow consistant with GR.

    Reminds me of the 3 new additions to Rocky Point

    Go........enjoy..........and ride on!

    Great addition............ EH!

    Its an additional trail and I would like to THANK THE VOLUNTEERS!
    And also the town , county and state. Without their efforts to promote healthy activities we would have nothing

    What does mlp have to do with this thread?


    Omg lumpy I was wondering where you went. The palm coast is beautiful! I didn't realize that a trail was local to that area. When down that way I have ridden Ft Pierce, Melbourne, Santos, paisley preserve, jungle trail and various other trails on the east coast. I have to say that omba does a great job and this should be an example on how clubs should operate! Hopefully I will be down your way soon and when I do I will pm you and maybe we can meet up

    I'm from cocoa beach, we had a lot of riding there, but slowly commercialism crept in. I was there last year and it looked like most of the trails were now apartments.

    Rumor has it that the Long Island area has about 160 miles of amazing, well maintained single track. Pretty much a trail is only a 10 or 15 minute ride from where ever you are.

    Pretty amazing!

    That's amazing! Well maintained is questionable............. What's amazing is I have been trail riding "trails since the seventies" and as an active enthusiast I have always maintained the trails. Also in an attempt I have tried to unite the community with events that I have started such ads spartyfesy (which..... With my efforts has blossomed into long islands FTF) I have been a trail steward and trail patrol. With the efforts of you and Liam as well as your board of directors and your inner circle the club you claim who does a great job maintaining the trail...... The politics and favoritism has driven me away. Now after sending my membership back I now maintain the trails I wish under the radar. Call me rogue, but it's because of me and my efforts RP has been so well trimmed the last few years. This has been because of me not climb . It would also seem that I would be a much better Ali, but for some strange reason ( power drunk or jealousy, greed, I don't drink "stout" or what ever) you guys choose to chase me away and bare in mind that all my efforts with climb were done while trying to deal with my wife's suicide, my daughters issues as well as other issues....adios and have a nice day!

    Hmm, anyone can read this thread and understand the flow?
    And you already made a major modification to a earlier post that was full of nastiness.

    Please don't include me in your problems.

    Best of luck though.

    Listen pal. The way you roasted me for no reason at the climb forum.... Your part of the problem! This has made me bitter towards you and also the crap Liam posted and said (Liam as a patroller calling me a piece of **** in front of my peers)has made me bitter towards him and with the other stuff bitter towards climb. As I said above.... I would better as an Ali but it's your choice to keep digging at me........ I tried to make amends and I am done........Yeah have a nice day

    In response to my modified post. It was in response to a nasty post from stump who knocked the efforts of 2 members who modified a trail section (unrelated to this topic) so it would be able to sustain longevity referring to them as "children with a riffle". He "modified his post" in his typical post-delete-retreat behavior. You tell me who is nasty pal!

    Dude..... live up to it. I got the update because I was subscribed to this thread. If you would like I can repost it? "2 inexperienced noons" and "its like a 4 year old with a riffle".
    But what ever......,... there is no fliw because somebody posted a link to another forum that was about a completely different trail and subject,.......... damn you guys are good and this is why there is buzz everywhere about the type of behavior you guys are displaying. So do me a favor pretend there is an "ignore button" and add me to that list.......... or just expect repercussions if you can't.
