    don t care Its simply not a priority There is no trail crew other than you the volunteers The protection of the natural resources is So it is necessary for us to lobby build and maintain if we are to enjoy the trails DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF ASSUMING ACCESS IS OUR RIGHT TRAIL ACCESS IS A PRIVILEGE Don t like what Bob is doing at Fair Hill Would you prefer that equestrians dictate trail design Would you prefer that the trail crew decide I volunteer at Fair Hill because I want to have a say I volunteer at DE Middle Run because I want to influence trail design toward more difficulty I am race director so that I can rehabilitate trails that are more difficult than those we currently ride and I get to influence how they are rehabilitated Awesome right It s a ton of work but it s the only way we can get that You re welcome Long rant Yeah but unfortunately this is the tip of the iceberg It s even more complicated than this So there are a lot of people working to make sure that we keep our access and even gain access It takes physical labor political involvement and lots and lots of sacrifice by less than a handful of people Your burden if you aren t involved in the process is to be protectors of those trails Respect the people that fight for your right man and woman Respect their sacrifices Don t be that guy gal This is where we the Trail Spinners have failed historically We do not communicate this effectively We just put out the fires fix what needs fixing and manage our relationships with land managers We have kept the public insulated from these conflicts I ve only been doing this for a few years but I have been involved with a bunch of issues that could have impacted access Specifically mountain bike access We fail at communicating effectively because well those fighting for us have their hands full doing the fighting We are always short on volunteers to help with things such as communication This very article is a weak attempt at communicating and probably not very effectively about what is going on behind the scenes But I hope this gets through to some of you We need help I know that there are those in the community that do not become involved for ideological reasons They object to building practices trail design etc I get it But I m sorry that s not enough of a reason to avoid involvement It s not enough for you to complain about what you don t like We need you to become an IMBA member and support our chapter We NEED you to attend meetings and help us not only find solutions we have tons of those we need people to carry them out Don t like the race Want more races The race director position is
