    ***Ogden BST trail maintenance 5/13/08 @ 5:30 pm***

    There is a group of Ogden area riders trying to start a dialog with Weber pathways in order to resolve some issues pertaining to MTB access and trail construction. There have been several battles surrounding illegal trail building in the area (think 22nd street) and we'd like to create a mature discussion and hopefully a permanent solution for all parties. The construction of permanent dh/fr trails and a skills park are something we think is attainable. In order to be taken seriously it's paramount that local riders become involved on the local level not only to support the established groups but to lend credibility to our efforts to bring MTB specific projects to fruition. WAFTA www.wafta.com is on board with us as is the Bikers Edge shop in Kaysville. We welcome all area riders to do whatever you can to show that there is indeed a responsible and active group in the area that deserves representation.

    So...

    Greetings, Weber Pathways Trail Workers!

    We will move our trail maintenance efforts back to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail this week. This time, meet at Frank's Auto, 1540 North Mountain Road, in North Ogden. Please park on the street and not in Frank's Auto' lot.

    We will be working on the Tunnel Mountain section of the trail this week, working to make improvements on this new section so that it is mountain bikable. Bring work gloves and water. We'll supply the tools.

    SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: This Friday, May 16, Amer Sports Winter and Outdoor will be holding a sample sale. Great prices on great products! Location: 225 E 20th Street in Ogden; 10am to 7pm.

    Thanks!

    Helene Liebman
    Executive Director

    I have spoke with some individuals from the Ogden Trails Network about the 22nd ST issue; they have never actually opposed it. It is, in fact, the forrest service that has banned the building of dirt jumps in that particular area. The property directly above 22nd ST is national forrest, and they had received complants about dirt jump building. I can't see why, it is an old dirt pit. Shortly after the ban, there was a rash of vandelism which the forrest service attributed to the dirt-jumpers. Personally, I live very close to the trailhead and have always enjoyed watching these guys ride. Not to mention, I recently purchased my first freeride bike.

    I suppose they think dirt jumpers bust out people's car windows too.
    All I know is that I don't know nothin'... and that's fine.

    well as one of the people who was affected by the destruction of the jumps, sure I was mad then sad. I have learned alot in how to deal with other user groups of the area.i will be the first to admit the place was out of control the straw that broke the camels back was when another goup of riders decided that that they needed to cut back a few trees that was in the landing. I know that this alerted the forest service. When you take away a popular place, they should have expected that certain people in the community were going to get emotional. I don't think that dirt jumpers were the cause to the vandalism- I could be wrong. I believe that some dumb mistakes were made in how things were handled.

    sorry for the rambling

    I was one of the people who was at the first wafta meetings last year and I have had few conversations with the blm,forest services and the weber pathways, As a local framebuider, downhill/freerider, trailbuilder at wolf mountain, I have been pushing this issue for a while.

    Right on. Check the wafta forum if you get a chance. We could use your input.

    Gotcha...I'm "truth" over there and most other places. That's funny as hell. I need to pay better attention to this internet stuff.
