    Great Oregon mountain biking article

    Just ran across this article about the positive economic impact that is happening in Oregon because local land managers are prioritizing the construction of mountain biking trails:

    New mountain bike trails help Oregon find flow, tourism

    Wish we could say the same in Idaho.

    There's definitely hope for other parts of the country. We're working with the Salem district of the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on Alsea Falls, and Sandy Ridge is also in that same district. US Forest Service is involved not only in Oakridge, where the Mountain Bike Oregon event mentioned in the article is held, but also in Bend around the Phil's network.

    Stuff like this:

    We too have our share here other responses to mountain bike trail building. It runs the gamut from incredible support and assistance to indifference to outright hostility. I like to focus on the places where I'm encouraged and supported and given tools and money and machinery to build the trails, even if it's not as convenient to get to the trailhead as other places right in my back yard...
