I was invited to attend an International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) trail clinic at The Woodlot to get some new ideas and education on trail building methods.
This blog entry could realistically end up a novel if I went into the details of all that was discussed and the work that took place on Shotgun. I met some great people and learned a few tricks in regards to building.
The active role that IMBA takes to keep trails open and legal for people on bikes around the world and specifically in the US and Canada is to be applauded.
The work and ideas that IMBA has about trail building and trail features is a subject that is hotly contested and open for debate here in the Vancouver area, but a tremendous effort was put forth by IMBA and the volunteers during the build today.
