Snauzers, which trails do TB focus on, presumably BC, Bergan, upper/western Jeffco, etc? In general, those trails don't see nearly the trail usage of lower/eastern Jeffco, MTBR and otherwise. I also recall you had stepped out of it all for certain reasons, no?
Yetigirl, bring it if you have something to say, you have a ton of creds. SS, how would you like it if your local MTB trail access became restricted or became buffed like sidewalk? TMT, presume you came here at least partly because of the mountain amenities and perhaps easy access to MTB trail systems, cause Austin is one heck of a cool place?
Comba obviously needs our collective help to both protect what we enjoy and to take it to the next level in such a heavily used and incredible Jeffco trail system. Those seeking election at Comba want to represent us more effectively, whether it be communication, trail advocacy and access, trail improvements, JCOS planning, website development, trail conflict resolution, gravity enthusiast issues, new trail acquisition and development, or a host of other needs that so many have put forth here. In addition to the statements on the COMBA website, candidates are also available to discuss your issues or questions, and most can be pinged on MTBR.com via PM, or possibly email. All of the candidates seeking election have way more commitment, desire, and knowledge about Jeffco and MTB trail needs, trends, and challenges than most of us can offer to the sport, including our time.
This isn't going happen on its own, and it isn't going to magically be all be peachy keen and stay the same as it ever was, and it isn't going to improve without hard work, personal time commitment, and efforts. It's understandable that people become apathetic, just hard to understand how people complain and abstain.
This isn't basket weaving or tiddlywinks. Mountain Bikers generally are a little more aggressive than average. MTBR's also spend more than a few thousand on their gear, sometimes in recurring years. Is it really the $20? Bring it.
