General Discussion / BNP trails closed to bikes rumor
« Last post by sirbikesalot on January 12, 2017, 10:18:46 PM »
I heard a rumor today from someone who heard it from someone that due to people riding the hiking trails at BNP they were considering closing all the trails to bikes? Can anyone substantiate this?

The latest on the proposal on trail reversal days at Blue Clay.
Once my proposal is written and submitted to cfsorba, it then goes to parks and rec, and then to risk management.
The park is apparently a sensitive issue in terms of county liability.
So I am getting feedback in terms of the reversal being a true intermediate grade.
The current trail modifications, from what I gather, are to create a safe environment for folks that like to ride offroad.
Historically,  Blue Clay was pioneered as a venue to hone ones skills on a mtb.
That has all changed, to the applause, and also, to the dismay of others.
Those others, being the ones that originally built the thing.
I still am going to maintain my stand, and push for a three day trail reversal.
The only thing left for me to do is calculate the amount of signs (minimal) and the verbage on them.
The county may decide that the risk will increase and deny the proposal.
My next proposal will be to deem the trail be graded what currently it has become.
Beginner plus.

I am currently making a proposal to cfsorba  regarding changing trail direction to, hopefully, 3 days per week, weekends not inclusive.
So far the issue  seems to be signage.
I think this could be streamlined to a 20 minute process so long as the mtbrs are literate.
That makes me wonder as there are two signs stating helmets requires and yet I see the otherwise...mostly  by the trail that has now been turned into a dirt road.
Aside that, I feel that the current grade, is wrong.
At least in the current direction and what is labeled,  intermediate.
New riders now feel that this grade apples to all trails.
And we all know that's incorrect.
But the trail in reverse is definitely an intermediate grade, as long as it's not modified.
I need input on this.
Especially the signage issue, but I have some big guns thinking about it.
The lazy man finds the easiest solution.
I think a sign that flips may be the answer.
And only a few at critical intersections.
Arrows not required.
So please let me know your thoughts on this as I am pushing forward toward a viable option for those of us bored with the current setup,  and for those wishing to improve their level of skill and confidence on a bike.
Today, an ol  skool slingshot cx bike was seen there, with the rider saying, it was better and faster.
That speaks volumes on the current plan for blue clay bike park.
I am hoping for open mindedness from the club that manages the place and from the public that uses it.
