  • Mountain Bike Advocacy | Trail Spinners
    to find out that trail advocacy also involves helping land managers with the many forces that control what and how they can do their jobs This means also working with many State County Local and National political entities This also means finding and supporting influential trail advocacy groups at each level like IMBA American Trails and Greenway organizations It turns out that if you can commit a credible and capable organization to supporting trail growth and maintenance you have much power within these political groups Many organizations promise this but only those with a history of delivering can actually create positive outcomes The awards DTS has received over the last sixteen months or so are part of the feedback to land managers that we can deliver on our commitments By nature every trail effort is a project with scope cost and time definitions This means we need to have a number of projects and project managers in the pipeline at any point in time to continue to grow safe and fun trail systems A relatively simple three hour trail cleanup requires labor tools PPE and management in order to achieve a successful outcome and a happy land manager So does a several mile new trail system As the scope of projects grows so does the need for better project management scope and cost definition funding sources subcontracts material purchases etc CURRENT TRAIL SPINNERS STRATEGY Labor In 2010 and 2011 we found that by pledging our organization to supplying volunteer labor we could gain approval to lead new trail building efforts that mountain bikers want to use Basically we gained access for our user group to land and trails that were previously either closed to us or in such poor shape that very few mountain bikers wanted to ride We also found that increasing productivity of our labor force and broadening our labor pool were necessary to complete projects in a timely fashion Currently volunteer labor on many projects is from a combination of Trail Spinner and non Trail Spinner organizations led by a few experienced Trail Spinner project managers using mechanized equipment to increase labor productivity Funding While the key s of volunteer labor project managers and mechanized trail building are important we also need to be able to guarantee performance by pledging money in the event we do not perform as committed We do this by holding fundraising events and by donations We also do this by obtaining grants some of which are project specific Many of these grants pay for performance so before any money is given out a certain percentage of the work needs to be completed This means we need to provide working capital to buy materials pay subcontracts and rent equipment plus supply volunteer labor before the grant pays money to reimburse our organization Over time as our cash balance increases we will be able to take on larger projects or multiple small projects and meet the increasing needs and desires of the regional mountain

    Tri Valley Project My notes are in the PDF file that is attached In a nutshell there are pros and cons to this project The primary concerns for me are the width of the trail the upgrade of singletrack hardened surface not asphalt and the material asphalt proposed for use throughout the trail The positive access to the Big Pond area More all weather trail So read the notes and decide for yourself But whatever your opinion make sure you attend the open house and you voice your opinion Tri Valley Trail Project Meeting Notes Ricardo Gomez Join Upcoming Events Weekly Middle Run White Clay Ride 04 27 2016 6 00pm Link view H3R Henry s Happy Hour Ride 04 29 2016 6 00pm Link view Manic Monday Evening Mash at Lums Pond is On the Road Again at Iron Hill aka Pergryn s Mount 05 02 2016 5 30pm Link view More Events Active forum topics Tri Valley Trail Plans Monthly Trail Maintenance Middle Run Pump Track More Forum Tri Valley Trail Plans 03 29 2016 10 10am Monthly Trail Maintenance 02 24 2016 4 35pm 2012 CAADX Cyclocross Bike 07 07 2015 10 45am More Posts Latest Rides
