    Great ride today...

    We need to get back out again soon. Utsamtbr's girlfriend proved to be too bid and obstacle and he had to cut his ride short...lol not to mention 40Acres almost hacked up a lung. No worries though, we still got about 12-13 miles of good trails in.

    Paul, it was good to meet you and your buddy John. I don't know what everyone's schedule is this week but I'm off so weather permitting I say we do it again.

    So I got a little OCD and looked up the property lines on BCAD the other day. Basically everything north of the Old Babcock road and west of the asphalt path before the big bridge is privately owned by Last Chance Forever INC. They are an Audubon conservation group. I was hoping some fanatic bird people were trying to keep bikers out of the trails, but it have to face the music. That property is truly private. Why they didnt mark all the entrances/exits as private I dont know. Maybe they dont know all the entry ways through.

    Now I am bummed and want to ride.

    Unfortunately, with the development of the walk/bike path that area has seen a huge increase in pedestrian traffic in addition to cyclists. Now it is not just the mountain bikers who knew how to find it but every jogger, stroller pusher and weekend rider on a Wal-Mart bike that are making their way back there. That opens up the owner of the Birds of Prey area to a huge liability if someone were to get hurt on the property and since we live is a litigation happy society, it only makes sense that they ban access.

    I've been riding back there for almost two years and have never run into a hiker, jogger or stroller. I understand it's private property and hope that in the future they will chose to see bikers as friends and not foe. Statistically bikers have the least amount of impact on the environment. We don't leave trash behind, understanding that accidents happen, and we don't tear up nature.

    In fact on many rides my buddies and I come back with more trash that we left with. Not to mention every year there is a MTB group that asks for volunteers to help do trash pick up.
