Alot of hard work has gone into those trails Holly. Its true that we had to weigh the interests of the environment and perhaps other non-biking types against the interest of our minority with city funding. But, I would counter by saying that in the end that land was abandoned, and lets face it worthless, until we came in there with our machinery to cut and level trails so that we could recreate in our free-time. Furthermore, we feel that this option is the healthiest in the long term. After all, that land has been abused for a long time by humans and it is not healthy, hence, not really worth the time to even think about any other option but pure fun. We've basically summarized this whole view point in the logo for our project. We have a leaf with tire prints on it, now FINALLY nature and everybody else can take a back seat for ONCE and let us have a little fun. I mean for real, this city is like a nature preserve as it is; this one area wont hurt. Now, if we could just get the remaining animals off of the land - to prevent any mishaps for our bikes - and perhaps disturb enough soil to allow invasive (easy to chop) species in there it'll be perfect.
