    Did the replace it with a new bypass or are they just using the double track ?
    Teacup always made me very aware of my limitations.
    Cheers, Dave

    Not sure what the long term plans are. There's not a lot of room to reroute in the little tract that included Teacup between Patterson Sideroad and the double track downhill. Perhaps a new trail on the south side of the double track?

    At the moment it's just the double track downhill instead. My guess is that perhaps someone hurt themselves on Teacup, but that's just a guess.

    It was a great section of trail for sure
    maybe the conservation people were worried about erosion as there were many roots being exposed

    Albion hills diffidently needs some new trails built with fresh ideas. It's not a bad thing that some trails are closed, but lets see at least a variety of trails.

    There seems to be a lack of meaningful communication and a unwillingness to work beyond the status quo. There was trail plan meetings but it felt more like a dog and pony show with the decisions already made by the same old people in the same old manner. There was no willingness to try something new no matter how well documented and proven in other riding locations. I almost sensed that there was a fear of such ideas being a success. The post meeting communication was abysmal and could be construed as "ghosting" ideas that did not fit the status quo once again. Unfortunately this seems to be a trend at this location that has gone on for many years. This is a management issue and faults in the policy process with regards to trail development.
