Builders V. Loggers

Mason, Victor, and Aaron's old trail has been clear cut (http://www.pinkbike.com/video/158490/). After 2 years, they are about halfway done with their new trail, in a place too risky to log. Special thanks to Shuttle Nuts (shuttlenuts.com), Hidden Wave (hiddenwave.net) and Tree Lines. Shot and edited by: Andy Tran

 This video will get VOD, because of the message, the flow, the music, and because of that SICK fire roost at the end! Nice work guys!

 I agree his so vod worthy
  • + 17
 What's rad is the owners of the companies that helped support this video also helped build the trail. Truly rider owned/operated.

 That trail is absolutely perfect

 So cool. I just spent 4 hours hiking in a new route. Love building almost as much as riding. Almost....

 I meant to plus props you but missed. Sorry mate

 that fire roost was the coolest/most creative thing i've ever seen in a video!
  • + 3
 It was the coolest thing for the first rider that hit it but I wouldn't wanna be the second guy haha

 This deserves more than VOD it deserves Video of the year!! It really describes who mountain bikers are, its a very respectable sport and were not gonna let a little bit of logging get in the way of us riding the way we want too, Ride on guys!! Sick Vid.
  • + 5
 Great vid! Been such a tough year in our area for losing trails to logging. Much respect to the crew and their meticulous eye for detail! Cheers, EB

 For any Ontario trail builders on crown land, contact your local Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) Office and notify them of where your trails are or even better join the Local Citzens Committe (LCC) on the forest and help make decisions as to what occurs on the crown land. As a mountain biker and logger it is possible to have the two exist alongside.

 i build trails too, i know how f*cked up it feels when loggers or government guys destroy our trails. eventhough it's illegal to build i still think they should leave our trails intact, it doesn't hurt nature .. :S
  • + 1
 well... that does it., im totaly inspired to get back out there and build another trail. after 2yrs of riding mine it was sadly fouled by loggers thinning out the trees, the ground is wrecked to so cant even clear it out and start over. thanks guys..the vid is awsome and the trail even more so.
  • + 1
 if i got my pinkbike account earlier i would have faced the hardest desicion of my life.........................................................................................................Which is better-builders vs loggers or danny macaskill?VOD!!!!!!!!!

 In the UK there is no chance you could build like that such a shame , you guys made a great job of the trail quite inspiring . There was a group of us where i stay who built a trail just out of town , but it got demolished by local rangers as it was suppose to be a walking path , on something as steep as that i dont think so . Wish there was stuff like this in the uk Frown great job though

 cant believe this never got VOD. It really sucks when logging or construction ruins what us bikers have all worked hard to build and maintain. its happened to me many times, and it does suck donkey balls. awesome video guys!
  • + 4
 Wow this is such an epic feel good edit! Definitely deserves VOD! Makes me want to get out there and build an amazing trail!
  • + 1
 im so mad this was one of the sickest trails i have every seen. One day i was hoping i could ride and see how much effort u put into this trail. Now i can never see it. VOD forsure

 Nice work Andy. Thanks! Hope to have you back in our neck of the woods again. VOD!

 Yeah Andy!! Another classic, well done. Thanks for showing everyone what its all about.

Treelines/Shuttlenuts FTW!!!

 Super job Andy and gang! The filming, the editing, the building, the riding and the fire roost! What's next?
  • + 1
 Nice video guys but building trails where I live is ridiculous. Everything is illegal and you get fined for riding. We can't just out and build without getting confronted by hippies or rangers or rednecks.

 Credit were credit is due... THIS IS THE BEST VID EVER!!!!!!!
Really brings home a message about not letting things stop you from achieving what you want! Smile

 Hey Aaron, sorry to hear about the North Trail going down, It was a classic. Such a sick forest. Good to see you haven't abandoned that zone. Such a good place to be.
  • + 2
 Thanks Brose! I do miss Travy and Forehead, but the scene is as good as ever right now, and the property is getting more attention than it has seen in a really long time. Lots of proactive people hangin' around. Shit's getting done.
