Donate to the Scottish Trail Fund & POW UK for a Chance to Win a Limited Edition Stumpjumper Evo [Ends Tuesday 15th]
@crag79: yes, it does seem to be a steep uphill battle in a lot of England. There has though been a recent 3 year job post announced for a UK Trails Project Manager, hosted by DMBinS, which is a really positive step in making progress across the rest of the UK, with learnings from Scotland.

More of us care than you think (67% YouGov Poll in 2022). But as much as we can do individually, we need help from those ‘in charge’ to make the changes needed. Hence raising awareness and supporting campaigns asking for this. Agree manufacturing has a lot of room for improvement, and bike brands are working on ways to do this (POW UK has included a number of bike brand strategies in their latest report). All the more reason to keep the conversation alive to see a difference faster!

Or the biggest challenge action on climate change faces is people not wanting to talk about it because they think they are being hypocritical. POW advocates for systemic climate change - energy systems, better public transport, less fossil fuel subsides and investment over renewables. These are the biggest changes needed, now. Opportunities for people to get outside into nature is super important, and helps rural communities who want to welcome tourism (from near as well as far). With some imagination, which is happening already, this can be done more sustainably too. To see action on climate change, we need all the help we can get. I welcome bike brands stepping up to support and talk about this, and I’d love to see more people on bikes advocating for action on climate change - and getting out to vote accordingly.

Thank you, I’m very happy to get to share stories like this (the good parts, and the space for improvement/progress too). And as for bikes on trains in the UK… It’s been a steep and wobbly learning curve but I think I’m getting the hang of it now !

It's true there are a lot of challenges trails can face. In South Wales where I'm from larch disease is taking out a lot of the commercial forestry where most trails are (and now Revolution Bike Park in North Wales too). All the more reason why the efforts put in in Aberdeenshire to build relationships and get trails adopted and back open again is so inspiring! And why getting involved with or supporting local trail groups doing this work is so important.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments! It's great to be able to share these trips, and I'm happy it's entertained, inspired or provided an escape to the outdoors in some way :-)

Interview: Manon Carpenter - 2014 DH World Champion
Prize money debate: just to clarify UCI do pay Men and Women equal prize money for World Cups and Champs, which I think is right and fair of them. Some other race series' don't, hence the question!
