Support San Diego Trails & Chance To Win A Specialized Turbo Levo
So... As someone that has been involved on all sides of these issues in SD for essentially the last decade, I could write for hours about all the things being discussed here. I'm a gravity rider who does his own thing now within SDMBA's volunteer crew as I found the challenges of dealing with certain ego's and "most" Land Managers to be too much. Yes, the bulk of the rangers here in SD are essentially "Anti fun trail" and that tends to center around the fact that most of the trails are located in "preserve" areas. So per the Rangers / Land Mangers "trails are designed to help you enjoy the the preserve, NOT be a fun roller coaster ride that is a sole destination inside of the preserve". The parks are not "zoned" for that type of use. I could bore you to death but just google MSCP rules and guidelines (Multiple Species Conservation Program). Also, if you're ever going to try to go the legal route and communicate to ANYONE of authority regarding trail use here in SD, you must know the in's and outs of the MSCP guidelines. Now that the boring shit is out of the way, how to make the legal, Sanctioned SD trails better... The fun envelope NEEDS to be pushed by the SDMBA Liaisons BUT... just because someone is a Liaison to a certain area doesn't make them qualified to build fun trails (remember the ego thing I mentioned above???). Figuratively speaking, there are only a handful of exceptionally good mtn bike trail builders in SD and I know for a fact that none of them are SDMBA liaisons to the public trail areas. The SDMBA liaisons understand the rules, regulations and environmental features that need to be on trails to keep them in line with what the rangers want to see. Example, if anyone has ever witnessed Ben Stone defend and legally explain away a mountain bike feature as an important environmental protection necessity, I'm sure they were left speechless and in awe as I have been... the man is pure poetry in action when it comes to that skill! Now if I went to Ben and said "build me a bad ass jump line", he'd probably laugh and just point me in the direction of some of the good jump builders he knows. So until the SDMBA board makes it a point to find and get those good builders matched up with the Liaisons who have the land manager relationships and environmental understandings to start getting the fun envelop pushed, we're going to keep winding up with the same bland / boring Sanctioned trails. The good builders are never going to want to be a trail Liaison (trust me, it's annoying, I've done it before), but that's okay, they don't have to be! The liaison's just need to let go of their ego's and realize that the guy(s) that does nothing but build wild fun illegal stuff has the expertise they need to make things fun. Think about it, would you let engineers design a race care WITHOUT extensive input from professional racers?!?!? NO, it needs to be a team effort! the same way in which you can't expect the fun trail builders to care about anything MSCP related!
