Advocacy / IMBA Electric Mountain Biking (eMTB) Survey
« on: November 04, 2015, 08:46:56 PM »
For those interested, IMBA has a survey about eMTB's...https://www.imba.com/news/eMTB-survey

I started to fill it out, but there is not a definition of eMTB's so I abandoned the survey. There is a big difference to me whether we're talking a ~300 watt pedal assist model or one that is more of an electric motorcycle.

HMBA Website Suggestions, Comments, etc. / Trail Status

I'm going to take a wild guess that 6 of the trails are not still "Sloppy in spots" and probably need their status changed.

HMBA Website Suggestions, Comments, etc. / Long Delay Posting

Is anyone looking into the long delay between clicking "Post" and your post actually being posted?

This has been happening for some time now. Due to the number of double posts I've noticed, I assume people are clicking the post button more than once and it is not just me.

Brown County State Park / ??? Using Maprika In Case Of Emergency
« on: August 13, 2013, 09:55:53 PM »
It has been suggested that we could/should use the Maprika app's "Send Location" feature in case of an emergency involving a downed rider.

While I understand using "Send Location" by email or text, what I don't have is an email address or phone # to send the info to.

The situation I'm trying to avoid, is calling 911 and then having them give me the email or text info. I would need a pencil and paper as well as reading glasses to write it down and make use of it. Others ride with nothing but their phone. I don't see this going very well in a stressful situation...especially if I am the injured party.

Can we get an email address and /or a phone number to text to so they can be saved on our phones and ready for use?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Rants and Raves / Walnut Cheater Lines
« on: July 08, 2011, 09:57:55 PM »
If whomever is creating the cheater lines on Walnut at BCSP would spend as much effort learning to ride as they do moving rock, they wouldn't need to move the rock. The kicker is that the cheater lines were harder to ride than the obstacles (noobie traps).

STOP IT!!! It just isn't your trail to do what you want with.

A couple of those cheater lines don't exist any more until someone makes them again.

As a side note...16.9oz and smaller water bottles do not stay in bottle cages and I'm tired of picking them up for others that think they will.

Rant over.

Even with the trail work, we had a wonderful 20 mile ride today.

Mods, feel free to delete this if you like.

Brown County State Park / Schooner Trace
« on: January 16, 2011, 08:20:48 PM »
A friend and I hiked Schooner Trace today for the first time. This evening, another friend asked what I thought of it. My reply was as follows.

"What did I think of Schooner? Well, to be honest, I think it must have been bench cut by a bunch of lazy builders that only did a 1/3 bench, at best, and left to drink beer. There isn't even a trail tread in some places. If I had ever tried to leave new trail in that shape, Alex would have made me fix it.

And the rocks...all I can figure is they must have piled excess rocks on the tread planning to get rid of them later. However, it looks like beer:30 came around and put an end to that idea as well.

Nothing more than ill conceived, poorly executed, unfinished trail. I guess there is a reason it is called a "trace" and not a trail." ;)

Actually, I'm sorry I will never have the stamina or skills to ride my bike on Schooner. However, it is now my favorite hiking trail.

Fantastic trail. My complements and thanks to all that had a hand in building this trail. Very nice work.
