What I said is still true. Even if a trailbuilder built on legal grounds it is still able to and will eventually be torn down.

Y'know, I have even come to terms with the fact that even Goat Path will be shut down one day. At least I will be the one to tear them down when the time comes. In the mean time, I am going to dig like every day is my last (once this god damn winter is over!!). I have a bunch more years left though.

Hey, that would be me! Theres a lot of rumors about it, and no one around here even seems to be sure whats up.

I've heard Post will be torn down immediately after the SC Mountain Bike Festival, but then I've also heard that they have to do more work on the plans for the Trader Joes that's suposed to replace Post Office, so it could be up for a little longer. I've also heard rumors about if it does get torn down, it will be rebuilt nest to the Aptos Pollo Ground Jumps, or in a separate lot. But all of this is just what I've heard from people in positions who whould know whats going on, and they cant seem to come up with the same story soo... Rolleyes

Well, thanks for clearing up that they are currently in limbo. Has the property actually been officially sold to the developer?

Your attitude really sucks. Brockham would be ploughed by now if I thought like that.

The developer Barry Swenson has owned the land for a while and has let post office exist, so we can complain to much, but it still sucks.

Best of luck. It would be a shame to see them torn down. Soooo much history there.

I didn't say give up building, infact do the opposite and enjoy life. But getting mad at other people for taking down jumps that YOU built on land that is NOT yours is childish, like a kid throwing a temper tantrum.

I didnt imply that you said give up building. no one has said that.

As i said if i had your attitude brockham would be ploughed by now so would alot of other spots. When confonted by authority you can either lie down and accept it or you can fight it. I suspect you are not exactly someone who would be fighting on the beaches. That is shame.

Im not saying you have a legal right to be building on other peoples land obviously you dont. But possession is nine tenths of the law and in the uk at least thanks to our adverse possession laws you can take land from people who arnt using it. Also whether you have the moral or legal right to use land owned by someone else but not being used by them is a more complex issue than you are leading people to believe.

In this instance the guys at Wingham had negotiated with the landowners got insurance etc (admittedly they had since let this lapse) but they then turn up one day to find thier trails ploughed without any notice. That IS somehting to 'get mad about' no one is throwing tantrums but expecting common decency out of an organisation that you had an agreement with is not childish. The land owners, who by the way is are a schoool and have no other possible use for the land as it cant be developed, are in this instance being unreasonable jobsworth dickheads. They could have just met with the riders and said sort your insurance out before the spring. They gain nothing from what they have done. It is just mindless.
