    Illinois is C+, but that's for most of the area. My area would probably be a D by their standards.

    Ha! we're hanging loose, so I guess that is flat?
    I wouldn't say we are content though, just too busy surfing! (and working of course).

    Living in the MNF in West Virginia, about 20 minutes from the VA line and the GWNF, so I guess life is still pretty good. And the "looming battle in the Mon" is losing steam by the day as most local governments and our leaders have listened to the mtb'ers and have renounced the proposed wilderness expansion.

    "Mississippi C+ - Pockets of great trails - MTBers have no public voice"

    I guess we are PHLAT

    The fun part about living here is no access issues so why draw attention to yourself when we get to build whatever we want ...pretty much where ever we want

    B+

    I guess it could be worse. Other than Tapeworm, I wonder what other trails they might have been refering too.

    Not too bad, hoping next year is better.

    Colorado A- Solid advocacy scene gets even better


    It's great knowing that I've had a hand in the comment about the advocacy presence. It's nice to know it's getting noticed.

    Sounds about right...

    Connecticut
    C
    Good race scene, demanding trails
    Mountain bikers need to build clout

    There appear to be very few user groups (outside of ATVs who get no respect) who are vying for attention. It shouldn't take too much push to get MTBrs put at the top of the list. I commend Radair for his service to NEMBA. I only wish I had more time - the days seem to be disappearing more rapidly every day. At this point I contribute more $ than time, hopefully that will change this year.

    Incidentally, I have had ZERO user conflict situations in the nearly 20 years of riding here in CT.

    C+. That's about right. Just above average. Other than what Bradbury Mtn. state park is doing there isn't much else going on.

    Me, too! We regrettably experienced a closure in N. CO and formed a group to help our burgeoning community where, it seems, those that were advocating for us were asleep at the wheel. It's good to be involved and we've since been able to build some new trail and have our say in host of other projects in Larimer and Boulder counties.

    In '06 I'm hoping we step up to IMBA membership and greater recruiting.
