How Are Mountain Bike Trails Built And Cared For? | MTB Trail Advocacy

Published on January 5th 2019


The old rule in mountain biking: no dig, no ride. Looking after the MTB trails that you ride is a great way to give back to the wider community, but just what goes into the planning and development of public mountain bike trails? As with any purpose built sports facility, trails require specific care and maintenance. Subscribe to GMBN: Get exclusive GMBN gear in the GMBN store! Do you volunteer in a trail group near you? Let us know in the comments below 👇 Trail advocacy is the general care and upkeep of mountain bike trails, working with the local landowner and riding groups to care for and maintain the trails so that they can be enjoyed by as many people as possible. With the correct care a trail can be ridden all year round, although you should avoid riding eroded trails. In many cases the trails have been planned and developed with the local authorities and landowners, often with large donations of time and money. Thank you to Pedal Progression and Architrail.
