 Tom Bradshaw obviously drew the short stick at the editorial meeting on this topic.

 @Lemmyschild haha I have to put my hand up for this one! Part of the idea came from when my mate really hurt herself the other night, the awesome humans at Squamish Search & Rescue found us via me sending them my location through the app. Thank you SAR legends!

 Wish you guys would sell a 30 day access pass for $5 or something. Do that and I’m in. Would use that all the time when traveling to a new area I don’t know well. Charging a recurring monthly forever fee for something I won’t need 98% of the time I ride my local trails? Fuhgeddaboutit!

Fix your revenue model to the use case need that aligns with most of your users, and you’ll get more $$ and less pissed off content providers. I know it’s not that expensive a monthly fee, but I’m TIRED of companies trying to cram their recurring revenue models down our throats when we don’t want or need it!

 @nsteele: I'm very much doubting that $5 for a 30 day access pass is "the use case need that aligns with most of your users"

 Trailforks is a really interesting example of how technology makes things more egalitarian, safer, and easier, but also contributes to abuse and over-use.

Around me, many local hills were put on trailforks without landowner permission and popularity did have a marked increase. Sure, folks can find the trails by word of mouth, strava, etc., but trailforks is by far the easiest and most convenient way to navigate trails (especially when it was free).

Some trail orgs have taken their trails down from Trailforks and have their own apps, (or *gasp* paper maps) that they hand out.

Search and Rescue organizations love trails forks because it provides good maps and location services for those hurt out in the woods.

Personally, I think trailforks demystifies finding trails for new users and reduces a lot of the "locals only" and "bro-knowledge" culture that is endemic to the sport. I think this is incredibly useful in moving mountain biking into the mainstream and allowing access to those who otherwise might not feel comfortable asking for help finding trails or searching on their own.

The downside of course has been a big up-tick in riders, lots of wear on the trails, and more user conflicts. Everyone wants to be outside due to COVID and our local lots have been PACKED with riders. Trailsforks make it easy to find where everyone is riding.

Overall, I'm split on Trailforks and other digital mapping tools roles in the MTB world. I certainly use them frequently, and know others do as well, but I also understand the reticence to publicize trails that have historically had a much smaller user group. Not every landowner wants their backyard to turn into the Kingdom Trails. (Heck, even some folks at the Kingdom Trails didn't end up wanting that). Yet, it is so incredible to see a more diverse set of folks out of the trails in large part due to the easier access provided by these apps.

 I think theres a very interesting issue of apps driving traffic to only the "best" spots. This is true for things like yelp/google maps as well as mtbproject and trailforks. If you are sitting on your couch planning a ride, OF COURSE you're gonna choose the trail with the best rating/ranking if you only have time for a single trip this weekend. The propensity to try and optimized our lives really ends up making us all pretty risk-averse, looking for the safest options.

Im not sure the right way to nudge (manipulate, lol) users to try more trails and spread the traffic around. Its also important for just experiencing more kinds of mountain biking! If I read "ledgy, techy climb" I might be put off when I'm sitting in my sweatpants at home, but once my friends have dragged me out there it ends up being fun.

 I'd be curious to see how much a group of users can change trail/route recommendations by recording a few laps on a group ride.

Badges promoting exploration could be one way to influence riders away from some of the hot spots. AFAIK these are not user generated though, so it would need to come from the local trail org or the dev team.
  • 3 1
 yup , one of the coolest things about it is to see how many people truly wish to go out mountain biking - once you remove that huge barrier for them - navigation.

Thanks to trailforks, users who wouldn't normally go out - due to sub-par websites, maps, signage, etc - they'll get out and ride.

But

Then the usage goes up, and things get blown out and worn. So I hope in the long run, it will be seen that more trails should be developed due to increased ridership. Right? I hope i hope i hope.

Love seeing more butts on bikes - let's help but 'em on 'em!

And the children rejoice and the lambs purr with happiness.

 @pockets-the-coyote: definitely I think an easy thing to implement on an app. Badges have never done much for me personally, but they seem to do a lot for others. Id also like to know some of the math behind the popularity rankings.
  • 2 0
 @bblaney372: for sure, although I come from a rock climbing background and there was something kind of cool about getting the local guidebook. There was some reward in needing to sort of figure out where everything was, scoping out the new stuff that isnt in your last-edition book, etc etc.

My main concern is not that apps increase accessibility for newer riders (which is good!) its that they accidentally concentrate traffic onto trails that sound good, when people would have as much fun (or more) if they were varying up their riding more. That would have the benefit of also spreading traffic (and trail wear) around more.

 @lkubica: I wonder how much PB is making from taking the app from free to pay to use, or was it a different reason? Did PB release the app for free knowing people would use it with the intent of charging money for it in the future? Can't people get around the fee by using desktop mode on mobile?

 @lkubica: ehmm useful indeed, if your home region is full of trails that you've never heard of, which pop up daily on Trailforks. I mean, 20km from your house, sometimes even less.

 @abzillah: The answer to all your questions is "yes".

I don't think keeping TF free forever was viable, software developers are expensive, even if the trail data is crowdsourced. Just hosting the database that the app pushes to/pulls from is a constant money drain.

They were also pretty up front about the area limitation not existing in the web version.

This video seems aimed at all the people that have picked up mountain biking in the last year and a half though.

 @lkubica: Well, I ride 3 or 4 times a week, 11 months a year in Squamish. I've been here for the last 13 years, and I bet there's a solid 40% of the trails I've never put tires on. So it could be useful if you've got a massive trail network.

 Has Trailforks lost that many users making people pay that they needed a PB plug video.

 Greying out areas which are not in a users "free zone" actually puts riders in danger who rely on Trailforks maps. If they're in an area with no cell reception, they won't even have the ability to download a better platform for mapping to get them out of trouble.

For shame Trailforks and Pinkbike. To think, the funding you require could be had from Sponsors, or In-App Ads and In App Purchases. Especially if someone were using a free version.

I've downloaded another App, to use alongside Trailforks. It has allowed me to save much larger areas to my phone for offline use.

 Considering much of North America uses Trailforks, securing a few solid sponsors / investors should be easy being that those sponsors probably use Trailforks too.

 @tankthegladiator: yes & no. Trailforks and other apps definitely make things *safer*; especially the SAR function. But with any activity or sport one shouldn’t become entirely dependent on electronics and technology to navigate safely in the wilderness. Things happen, batteries die... I’ve personally made the point of putting that responsibility on myself by learning how to read a topo map, use a compass etc. Because at the end of the day I’m making the voluntary choice to participate in a dangerous sport and travel through the wilderness/backcountry so the more skills I have the safer I’ll be with or without an app.

Second; yes while it would be great to have this app for free and it be possible for it to be funded by sponsors. I find in amusing that we compain about the relativity low cost of this app all the while the vast majority of us are on $3000k+ mountain bikes and spend hundreds, if not thousands more each year on it. This app is a drop in the bucket. A worthy drop.

 @brycepiwek: I agree and disagree though.

I agree a rider shouldn't "rely" on Trailforks. What I meant was - if someone who never uses it, therefore never pays for it, finds themselves in a pickle / lost... They also can't reference it out of their "free" area. That is a false sense of hope - which isn't immediately apparent until you find yourself in this situation. If you think about it, the only time one references a map is when they're in an unfamiliar area... Which is often out of the free area.

I disagree with the statement about complaining about it being a paid service. There are other fantastic trail mapping apps which are completely free, but just do not have the same level of total content. When you consider that the majority of the descriptions, photos, videos, statuses and even trail ratings are submitted for free, by users.. Why should Trailforks capitalize on that free data, and then turn around and charge those who gave that data? If they simply need funds to maintain a service they've always provided - fundraise and find sponsors.. Don't charge the users who helped to build your platform for you.

90% of users don't give a hoot about the blurry photos and shaky videos which are user submitted. Keep it simple, keep it free, and keep a healthy round of investors. "this map brought to you by Transition Bikes" Etc.

How did Facebook grow? Ads and investors. It's as large as the world wide web, and still 100% free - regardless of capacity of use.

 @tankthegladiator: FYI

Can I still use the map in free mode, what if I'm lost?

If you're outside your free area the map and trails are greyed out as you zoom in closer, but still visible. The trails are still draw on the map, they are just greyed out with minimal info besides trail condition and status on the info popup. The full trail detail page is unchanged, so you can still view descriptions, photos and reports.

What if I have an emergency?

The Trailforks app has an emergency page, where you can call the local emergency services and give your current location for dispatch. There is now also a button on this page that when clicked will unlock the map temporarily (6 hours), in case you have to do some emergency navigation. However you can only emergency unlock the map 3 TIMES! So please only use it in case of an actual emergency.
  • 1 0
 @markholloway: What is the liability of having an emergency unlock only 3 times? I understand the thinking behind it, and it is really a good idea. But is there more liability in having a limited number of emergency unlocks vs not having any at all?
  • 1 0
 @markholloway: The Emergency unlock is a great feature - one of which I have not had to use yet.

Maybe I need to update my app - but the greyed out portion on a Galaxy S9 at full brightness is illegible. Trails cannot be defined.

 I honestly don't mind that they charge, they should generate revenue for providing a service but they just did it incorrectly by putting the one piece that is a user contribution (mapped trails) behind a paywall. Strip out the additional functionality in the app that Trailforks themselves needs to put dev time into building and put that in the premium version.

 Remember when mountain bikers built trails then they showed up on TF marked as hiking and trail running. If you ever see a trail runner working on a trail take a picture I'd love to see it. Seems like someone is selling trail maps to other users and making a profit off the backs of others.

 Trailforks is awesome and I really appreciate the folks that develop and maintain it. I just moved to a new area and it's really helped me have fun and get out and ride. With a really busy work schedule and a new family I don't have the luxury of time like I did in my teens or 20s, but just because I can't spend the day 'exploring' and getting lost doesn't mean I shouldn't get to enjoy the trails. Rejection of tech is trendy, but the hipsters can have their paper maps, they get me lost and can't be updated for a changing trail network. I had one of the best rides of the year on a trail that was freshly cut and updated into trailforks by the Northwest Trail Alliance, thanks NWTA! btw I support NWTA with money, even though I don't have a lot, bc I barely have time to get out for a ride 1x a week. I'm happy to pay Trailforks for the service they provide if it means the people working on it get something for their effort!

 Not sure what all the hate is about? I use this app every ride when I'm in an unfamiliar place or trying a new route. Keeps the mistakes and hiking back up trails to a minimum. The route finder is incredibly helpful. Watching the user videos also gives you a good idea what you're getting into. The trail conditions user updates are also super useful. Never had to use the Emergency Info feature but know a handful of people who have. Happy to pay a couple bucks for the services provided. My 2 cents anyways.

 Apps such as this have directly led to landowner conflict in the Surrey hills which has led to trails that have been in place for many years being removed from circulation. It also drives more people to riding spots such as this that cannot be sustained with existing facilities and trail maintenance. It allows people to use local trails like a bike park but with no money paid for trail maintenance etc.

 That and the trail Grading system meaning people who really shouldn't be are riding supposed "Double blacks" (Like slippery when wet on Holmbury) for bragging rights, skidding their way down them and wrecking the trails.

 I think the whole problem is that our trails were built up with people slowly "earning their spurs", starting locally on bikes that were a bit rubbish, and perhaps hearing from a friend of a friend that there were some good trails near Dorking, or reading something in MBR. And it was a risk to get in the car and go up there, risking finding nothing and getting lost. So the trails weren't busy and could sneak under the radar. Now Strava heatmaps and Trailforks tell absolutely everyone where the good trails are, and there's no risk of getting properly lost. Modern bikes are so good they have lowered the technical barrier to entry, and that's before you add in the loss of the fitness barrier to entry from EBikes. It's no wonder the trail networks are under pressure from too much use and angry landowners. Problem is that this genie is well and truly out of the bottle. And I've no idea what to do about it other than people taking it upon themselves to get trails deleted from Trailforks and Strava segments flagged for removal. It would be lovely if the new trail users helped dig, but modern life is too much about instant gratification. For my part, I just try to leave no trace and educate beginners or those who are behaving like idiots, and do my best to be nice to everyone

 Where these trails illegal by any chance? Not much to grumble about if so, always on borrowed time without agreement with the landowner. Such is life in the UK

 @iainmac-1: there are plenty of trails that are "tolerated" by the landowner. And that's fine until there's so much traffic they can't ignore it or start to worry about liability of there's an accident. Then the party's over :-(

 @a-d-e: Completely, the fact that everyone is riding 160/170 bikes here these days is hilarious.

 @iainmac-1: Nope not illegal, its the abuse landowners were getting from riders that led to the decline in trust which led to the closure of the trail.

 @bombdabass: Not strictly legal either, it's public access land (With some interesting access rights that not a lot of folks know about) with a number of trails that have always been there. It's most certainly entirely legal to ride, however building is definitely not legal.

Abuse wise I assume you're talking about the inside of winterfold and the less than pleasant landowner there? if so he's been looking for any reason to close everything and restrict access for years, (And everyone I know who has encountered him has had a less than pleasant experience) Hurtwood wise, new ranger really doesn't know his way about compared to the last guy (Drives everywhere, instead of walking, so shockingly doesn't have a clue). Keeps finding "New" trails that have been there longer than he has been ranger. Also attitude wise, old ranger would take down features he didn't think should be there and leave the trails, new guy takes in upon himself to close the trails entirely, which is just leading to more conflict.

 @Tombrad Excellent! We train our coaches to the value of the emergency (if we have cell coverage).

As for myself, I have used many featured to find my way into new network based on the time I have and what I feel like riding. And I record my ride and save it, especially if I want to ride that trail again in the future.

Thanks again! And don't forget trail Karma!

 On trailforks there is a scarce description at least, contrary to Strava.
But this does not keep people away that should not be there (I put a existing path on trailforks with a detailed description some years ago, some moderator changed the description some time ago, and the comments are full of complaints - best comment was "its a hiking path and not rideable").

So I guess all this trailforks only works in an area, where there is:
- an active community and legal access to openly promoted trails
- a good 4G net
- no need for keeping people away that dont belong there

 Once upon a time, you had to look at physical maps, talk to strangers at the trail heads or bike shops or bar or coffee spot and possibly even befriend them and go for a ride, maybe do a little volunteer work with trail org, land managers, etc. to learn where the good trails are and the plans for new trails. But now, there's an app for that. I do pay for Trailforks mostly for the comfort of the SAR feature.

 Love trailforks. Not sure why the hate on here though. It is not like trailforks has cornered the market on trail mapping apps. What i would love to see in a future development is turn-by-turn direction on an apple watch so i can ride a new route w/o pulling out my phone every 5 minutes to see if I am on the right trail.

 Sadly this is the way to go nowadays, and every smart dumbass on a mountainbike knows that. Strava is killing it with their Heatmap. Strava in combination with one of those AI and OSM based routing apps, that generate a hiking or cycling route on trails that some Idiot put up on OSM, regardless of any landowner, nature preserve or highway crossing.

 Still find it hard to understand how trail forks fell on the "pay to play" program for using the app. I would have thought sponser advertising and or general advertising would have been the best route to create income for the developers. I am sure I am one of many people who have stopped using the app entirely and no longer contribute information via the website since this change. Waiting for the other shoe to drop and Trailforks making the website pay for use too!

 Trailforks seems like a double edged sword; a good thing for particularly remote areas where there is a huge effort to get to them anyway (e.g 1hr/2hr pedal).

However for more accessible areas, it's definitely pushing people into trails too difficult for them and increasing trail erosion big time. It's not fair on the trail builders either as far too many people ride but don't dig!

However since you started Charging for trailforks pro I'm sure these effects will actually be alleviated somewhat when people leave it!

Trailforks is nice but here's definitely something magical about 'earning your stripes' and doing some old-school exploring for secret trails without a map, which trailforks removes.

I love the feeling of stumbling across a trail and then riding it semi-blind, not knowing what to expect! That's MTB in its purest form.

Trailforks takes a lot of the 'edginess' out of MTB and moves it firmly into 'instant gratification' territory.

Sorry won't be paying.

 A mountain bike can be a source of adventure. You visit a new riding zone. Say hi to the locals , get to know the locals. Go riding with the locals. The phone is staying In my pack for emergency only. I prefer adventure with some suprise . Usually a hidden gem shown to me by the locals . That I got to know because my phone stayed in my pack.
