10 Ways to Make Your Mountain Bike Trail Awesome! – PART 1
If you have been following us so far, the goals we have placed in our minds when building a new singletrack mountain bike trail are sustainability, consistent character, rewarding scenery, and trail flow. Remember quality over quantity. We are going to be taking our time. But what if you don’t have the time to invest in such a lengthy endeavour as building a new bike trail from scratch?
If you are planning to build your own mountain bike trail, that is great! If you want your new trail to be the fastest, funnest, and flowiest trail in town, take a look at some of these tips and advice. They will work towards keeping your trail sustainable, so your hard work doesn’t get destroyed, and they will help make your trail interesting, so your hard work is enjoyed many others.
Before you get started with your trail build, I recommend you go to the IMBA website and buy a copy of their fantastic book, Trail Solutions: IMBA’s Guide to Building Sweet Singletrack. Keep in mind the money goes to a good cause. I received one from my local Bike Club, when I began trail building, and i cannot recommend it enough.
Follow the guidelines from IMBA, and other experienced trail builders and you will create a good mountain bike trail. Add to that your own personal passion and desire, and you will make the best mountain bike trail your riding community has ever had!
