Oops.  Deleted my own post.  Thought I double posted.
Oh well. Have the copied post.

General Trail Information / Re: Permit required signage?

I doubt the parks are going to spend the money for signs.  The whole point, they say, for the passes is to gouge...I mean raise more money for the parks.  Why spend that money on signs?  Why should HMBA spend money on signs for a fee we don't want, at least how it is now?
Besides, who reads signs anyways?  All the person would have to do is say they didn't see it.

Out of state is $9 for entrance fee.  Each bike is $5.  So one person would be $14.  Four people would be $29.

I have 2.3 Nevegals on the front and 2.1s on the back.  I rode on Saturday and traction was pretty darn good with them.  Only place I had an issue was pedaling hard on the uphill bridge on the SC.
Small knobs is NOT what you want in snow.

In the end.....ride what YOU like to ride on.  Everyone is going to have their likes and dislikes and personal preferences but it's YOU who will be riding the bike.
Try out some flats.  If you don't like them there's plenty of people that would buy them from you.

According to her it's going to HMBA for trail maintenance.

She flat out lied to you.  Not a single PENNY goes to HMBA.  It all goes into the general fund.  That's the biggest problem we all have with the fee.  We don't see any of it.  I wouldn't have an issue if some of it went to HMBA.

Everyone, keep voicing your negative opinions of the fee.  Let the parks and your representatives know that the fee is unfair.  HMBA does the maintenance on the trails, unlike the horse trails where the parks take care of most, if not all of it.  Not to mention road bikes don't have to pay a fee to use the roads so why should mountain bikers have to pay to use the trails WE built?

ok...end of rant.

Went to Fort Ben today.  Not one word from the attendant about having a bike pass.

Here is what you do.  Put the old bike up as a museum piece.  Find a bike YOU like and get your dad to buy it.  If he ends up not liking MTBing, which I doubt, you can talk him into giving you his bike.  It's a win-win no matter the outcome.  Your dad gets to ride the new bike with the latest tech, which will make for better riding, and if he doesn't stick with it, you get a newish bike.
Just don't tell him where you got the plan.   8)

I lose sleep knowing that many Hoosiers (the ones who need the parks the most) are being priced out.

Not only Hoosiers, but people from out of state that come to ride our trails are going to be cutting back, if not stopping all together.  I have read many comments from people on other sites that say the new fees will make them stay in their own state or go to another state to ride.
As little money they will get off the new fee, compared to the budget shortfall, they would have been better to just raise the gate fee more.

Probably wont be until Saturday before I can get out there with the weather like it is.  Shouldn't be a big deal since people shouldn't be riding the trail anyways.

Surprised they didn't mention Nashville at all for any amenities.  Bloomington and Columbus were all they talked about.
