    Good job! "Keep Singletrack Single" poster

    Good evening....

    While taking one of MANY restroom breaks during yet another Greeting Shift, I noticed the following poster hanging up on our bulletin board next to Customer Service.

    Sorry for the pic quality, but it was taken with a camera phone.

    If you can't tell in the upper right, it's the Ridge-to-Rivers logo.

    I think it's a good start. I do wish it was displayed more prominently in our biking department, but it's definately better than nothing.

    Anyone know if other stores have put this up yet?

    It woulda been nice if Zimo would have mentioned to not criss-cross around Rock Island and to stay on the designated trail. Ehhh but that whole subject is a whole nother thread....

    Thanks to Brett, and we need reminders to a) not ride around puddles or soft spots in the middle of the trail if to do so might tend to widen the trail, b) not to ride around obstacles too tough for you, and c) not to yield the trail by riding off trail as if you're doing someone a favor.

    With all the traffic we have, we need a huge percentage of compliance to keep our trails from continually widening and getting dumbed down...

    Fruita signs

    This is Fruita's version of "Keep the singletrack single" signage...

    On a related note, it looks like a motorcycle tried to make it up the Hulls rock drop recently... Very obvious from the skid marks all over the rocks... Oyyyy!!!

    Here's an idea.....

    What about produce biz card size of the R2R poster and on the back have a couple of things on etiquette and tips for keeping singletrack single. Distribute them at local shops and maybe have the Rangers pass them out during their patrols this spring and summer.

    No, you're doing great. I was a little obscure. I'm just sensitive to idiots causing trail closures. I don't even like how some of the close-in foothills trails have been shut off to bikes, but with enough therapy and medications, I'll get over it.

    I kinda like the Taser idea. Failing that, we could lobby to fence in all singletrack with electric fencing. Might make stopping to pee along the trail a little more complicated though...

    The Leave No Trace people have a Front Country Program and a bunch of resources for rec. education, etiquette etc.

    Tread Lightly has ed. resources too.
