I know they put up a sign letting the public know they are out there and they also mention their events in advance on the Luton and West Mich Trail Conditions Facebook pages. I'd just recommend choosing another trail on Monday nights. They will be done the end of August I believe.
I agree. When I first saw them out there I got excited for the sport in general in our area. Have never seen so many kids getting into mountain biking at such a young age and I think it's awesome what they are doing. I really loved that they started out building trail too! That's why it was so painful last night, to be treated that way by so many of them to the point where it started to make me bitter. Honestly, it was so bad I started to think it must be coordinated- like they're telling the parents to ignore anyone that tries to talk to you.
I will certainly avoid riding there on Mondays until they're done and thanks for the info on when the program ends this summer. It is a bummer though, if you ride on Monday nights it's basically like you just lost access to one of the best trails in town.
