    As tech Ed, I'm sure we can all look forward to his review of the gas powered arrestomatic in next months edition!

    In answer to the question, no, what looks like a plain old bit of woodland could just as easily be some ancient burial ground or site of special interest.

    If you attempt to approach the land owner you are showing that you are not a cowboy (or bunch of) but a keen interested individual\group who might be what the land owner has been looking for to make use of their land.

    Its a hard graft making it official rather than just turning up with a shovel on the quiet, but it will show you are keen and there for the duration.

    Re: The MBR Big Question

    when does a trail become a trail??

    is there a limit to how long it needs to be before its a trail? does it need to have certain criteria to be a trail? if so then what?

    when i was a kid i would think nothing of building a few jumps in the forest and playing there all day, is that a trail and is it illegal??

    what im getting at is if a bunch of lads want to knock up a few jumps then add a berm or 2 and later a drop off or 2 etc etc then why is that bad?
    if a passing mtbiker happens to stumble on the "trail" and spends an hour or 2 having FUN then why is that bad?

    is it all down to health and safety?? is it the odd inividual who has a stumble and then feels the need to claim for his/her own stupidity?

    what if your nearest legal trail centre is 50 miles away but you know of some awesome not so legal trails on your door step, would you not think its a good thing then.

    i say build the trails and let us decide wether we want to ride them.

    I feel silly now, and over cynical. However, introductions don't go amiss....

    Yes but, regardless of what they build, if the chosen piece of land is some ancient monument or site of scientific interest then they are in serious trouble.

    Look at it this way, would you be happy to pull back the curtain one morning to find the local kids have been into your garden over night and turned it into a mini jump park, after all your garden is private property (ok bad analogy but you get the point).
