I posted something in the General forum, but wanted to take it a little bit closer to home. So.....
My husband and I discovered (which I'm sure is not news to everyone...only because we are newer mountain bikers) that there are over 25 miles worth of great single track and two track trails at the Al Sabo Land Preserve in Kazoo.
Only 7 of the 25 miles is open to mountain bikers at the current moment. We went ahead and walked the other trails and discovered some amazing mountain biking options. Unfortunately, back in 1992 the Sierra Club closed off all but 7 miles to mountain bikers. My question is....do you think that 20 years later we might be able to turn that opinion around? I would bet that there are more mountain bikers on the Al Sabo trail then there are hikers these days. Al Sabo right now is to me a beginner/intermediate trail. If the other 18 miles were opened up (or even part of them) it would really bring the caliber up to an intermediate/advanced trail, much like Custer.
Any suggestions for how to create a movement would be well taken and useful!
I'm willing and ready to take on this challenge....
