Did you know that mountain biking would be way less fun if we didn't have singletrack? We spend a lot of time talking about different bikes and gear, but none of that would be of much use if all we had were gravel roads, which is why it's about time we discuss trail building and everything that comes along with it. Today's podcast sees me talk to a prolific trail builder who has been working in the woods for three decades, creating everything from chill climbing trails to killer descents to flowing blue trails and all that's in between. He's also built his fair share of unsanctioned singletrack, and while we don't condone skirting the rules - don't build illegal trails, please
- we do talk about why he feels like he has to go down that road. That's also why we're disguising his voice and using an alias.
This is just the first podcast in a series that will bring you conversations with the people and organizations involved with building the trails we all love to ride. Stay tuned for more perspectives in the coming weeks, including chats with cycling organizations and other builders.
