Opinion: Who Owns a Trail?
Hey Charlie! We just met the other night at the Lumberyard and it was pretty cool to stumble upon this piece the day after. It's very thoughtful, well-composed and funny. I just have to add, that by creating these illegal trails in the first place, you could be harming years (and unfortunately in Portland DECADES) of hard work building the relationships that get legal trails built. If the hardcore, dedicated riders that spent time working on these illegal trails instead spent efforts building a community of riders, then perhaps we would have more wide-spread support to get legal trails built. Cliques are not productive. We need to convince hikers, and other nay-sayers that mountain biking is the right sport to promote to get kids off the couch and into the woods. That takes more than the few civic-minded people that stand up to that task. That takes the entire community of mountain biking. Although I do work as an "online movement builder," so maybe I have a narrow, idealist view. Who knows. I sure hope not, because Portland has so much potential.

Twelve Finalists for Bell Built Grants - $100,000 in Grants
I agree with PHeller! But that's why you should vote for Sandy Ridge. That trail is right outside of Portland, OR.
