All, to add to Paul's point, the gentleman in question has called the Town Run Park manager and received permission to use an Ebike.  I have spoken with both on this topic.  As Paul stated, "respectful riders may continue".  The policy is for Indy Parks to enforce.  I hope we as an organization can support the MTB community on all levels.  I somewhat relate Ebikes to Drones, they came on the scene before policies addressing them we created.  There are different versions from pedal assist to throttle control.  While Town Run may not be the best venue, we have a 60 year old man out enjoying the trails.  I have not seen mention of reckless riding at Town Run only potentially non-pedaling.  Please be respectful.  Feel free to contact me if inappropriate or reckless behavior is sited.  I do not believe this to be the case in this situation.

« on: September 02, 2015, 01:05:56 PM »
Our friends over at Indiana Trails Community posted a survey recently.  It does contain answers with reference to the mountain bike community.  Please take the survey and look out for questions :What activities do you do on trails?  (other) Mountain Biking.  AND What would encourage you to make longer trips?  Mountain Biking

Let's raise the need for more natural surface trails in Indiana!

Thanks and enjoy the trails!

A lot of good constructive points.  I like the "top 5 commandments of trail riding" idea.  I had suggested a similar "hanging tag" for all mountain bike purchases at local bike shops for HMBA membership.  Would anyone posting on this topic be willing to lead a ride or education program?  To Paul's point, a lot of great info but we see very little organized participation from those suggestions.  I appreciate those that take the time to work, repair and politely educate our user group.  Open for suggestions and timeframe for implementation of said ideas.

Got my wife to the Liv Giant Demo.  I have booked to be in Brown Co that weekend but did not make the clinic registration.  She is still in "don't spend the money mode"!  I will break her of that sooner or later!
Baby Steps!  Anyone else needing "baby steps" that needs to meet at a trail once in a while to go slooooooooow with their spouse, 
Let me know!  :)

Awesome improvements and information for future improvements Nate!  Keep up the good work.  We may be able to find a few individuals available to assist as we finish up the surveys!
