@ismasan: As long as it's to kill poison ivy/oak, I'm probably ok with that. Unfortunately, I'm not too consistent with my militant eco-harass-ism.

@djbuilder: Good to know! Thank you for your insight. I'll check out that trail you built on youtube as well, I'm sure it's probably pretty cool. The reason I often post contrarian & caution in regards to trail building, is that I'm a little panicked about being in the middle of the 6th Great Extinction Event on Earth (1). I do know that trail building is small peanuts compared to mining, forestry and building huge uninspired housing developments. However I seek to raise awareness and influence the mountain biking community so it is self aware and guided to take the esthetic of "leave-no-trace" seriously. If we are the hardest on and first to police ourselves, then we might have more credibility when engaging other user groups on right of way issues. Perhaps we should take some inspiration from the rock climber communities similar struggles with modifying climbs, placing fixed bolted gear and anchors recklessly and without regard to local customs. "Eisinger says Adirondack climbers strive to minimize their impact in all respects, not just in their bolting practices. “Scrubbing lichen from holds, cleaning dirt from cracks for protection, breaking the occasional branch to squeeze by a tree, or removing a dangerous loose block are all accepted practices,” Eisinger writes. “Scrubbing an 8-foot wide swath and cutting trees are not only illegal, but aren’t accepted by the climbing community.” (2) 1 (https://www.sciencealert.com/the-mass-extinction-happening-on-earth-is-actually-accelerating-scientists-warn) 2 ( https://www.adirondackalmanack.com/2010/05/phil-brown-on-climbing-to-bolt-or-not-to-bolt.html )

@j-t-g: Valid questions. And is he on private, public or provincial park land? What is the policy of the land managers on creating new trail in this area? Did he get permission, or can anyone just go into the forest and scrape a trail down the fall-line? I'm also wondering about impact of increased water velocity over the cleared rock on downhill sediment erosion and possible localized stream turbidity caused by loss of vegetation on such a steep slope. In addition, is that an ebike he was riding? And can you ride ebikes anywhere in BC now-a-days? I'm not necessarily judging, just.. inquiring minds want to know.

Video: Improve Your MTB Skills at Home with Jeff Lenosky
Great videos as always Jeff! One question.. I can hop around all day long with clipless, but I have completely moved to flat pedals, as I am more confident in the air and descending interesting terrain. Could you please explain some of the nuances of back scooping the pedals. I'm struggling with this and my tech climbing chops are suffering as a result. Thank you in advance!
