Trail building - A fascinating hobby Trail building - A fascinating hobby
Why are so many of us riders fascinated by trail building? Why do we endure heat & cold, rain & snow, bugs & blisters, dirt & splinters?

Were we deprived of building forts and tree-houses as kids or do we simply like to build for a better ride? Don't search this blog for an answer, don't ask why, just go out and join the thousands who partake in this healthy, rewarding volunteer experience. Contact your local club or trail society and they will gladly show you the ways.
