Mountain Bike Access Issues Flaring Up in San Diego County
The problem is that the open space that is left has been land swapped by developers to be preserves. It all comes down to money and development in the end. Skateparks take very little space compared to a network of MTB trails. That land is far to valuable in San Diego/Orange County/etc to have it used as a recreational area. And once it is swapped to be a preserve, it is tough to get any recreation approved other than hiking, and the developers will keep making the land swaps for as long as they want to build. $$$$$$ is the root of the evil here.

Mountain Bike Access Issues Flaring Up in San Diego County
I ride.....rode...... both Calavera and Ted's, as have many people for many, many years. The government spends all their time closing trails and chasing people out, but offer no other alternatives. In San Diego county, I'm convinced they won't be happy until they have chased out every mountain bike. Orange County has trails, but if there is even the tiniest bit of fun or technicality to the trail, it will be sterilized into a flat trail. If there are any fun trails, such as the ones in Laguna, they issue tickets if they catch you. Orange County isn't necessarily against mountain bikes, they just don't care about them or want anyone to have any fun. It's frustrating.

Cam Zink Launches Non-Profit Trailbuilding Company
It would be awesome to see them go to work on some of my local trails. The problem is, the trails are in Orange County, home of the most sterilized public trails in the world. The county won't allow even the slightest little feature. They've dumbed down all the trails far too much.

Well sh*t, I was born in 1968. I guess I'll get a Canyon Sender instead.

AMI Purchases Bike Mag, Dew Tour, & Other Sports/Adventure Titles
They axed the Transworld Motocross magazine, website and race series. I'm guessing no titles in the portfolio are safe since motocross was the most profitable of the group.

First Look: The Stevie Smith 1199 DH Track
A World Cup at Whistler would be awesome!!!! Doing it as a tribute to Stevie Smith is very cool. Count me in to be there to watch and tell my buddies that I could ride that just like they do.

Video: How to Make Trails Look Steep in Photos
Some of us actually enjoy taking photos as much as the ride. And from my experience, all my friends really enjoy getting photos of a good ride. It's all in the perception of fun, everyone has different perspectives.

San Diego Cycling Community Fights for Local Skills Park
Unfortunately, since it is someone else's land, they can do with it as they please. If there is this much support, get a group together and purchase a piece of property to build a permanent pump track. I am a huge supporter of promoting mountain biking, and like to see the creation of new trails, parks and opening land up to the sport. However, I have been on the other side as well. We had a group building a bike park that included a pump track, skills area and small jump line on public property that was going to be turned over to the city to be opened as a public park. Someone trespassed on the land before it was open, got hurt and there was a lawsuit filed. That put an end to this nice public park that was going to be open for everyone to use. If there would have been no trespassing, lawsuit, etc, it would be open to the public now. There was a tremendous volunteer effort to clear the land, build the pump track and facility which went to waste.
