There Is No Trail Fairy!

Once you enter into the world of mountain biking it's easy to understand why so many people love it, but it's also easy to forget it takes a lot of work to create and keep trails operational. The trails we love to ride don't build themselves. They are supported by dedicated volunteer builders. The MTB trails at Copeland Forest don't presently have an organized group maintaining them. This leaves the trail as illegal in the eyes of the MNR. Over the next three years, the Couchiching Conservancy will be coordinating the creation of a Copeland Forest Stewardship Committee. This is being done to find a dedicated group of volunteers to support and maintain the interest of the forest and the community that uses it. Will you join me in convincing MNR/Couchiching Conservancy and other user groups that mountain biking is a good thing for our community, and that we should not be simply tolerated but accepted?
