Check in your phone's gallery and see if the photos are the right way up as they are. If not, you can edit the photo on the phone and rotate it. Mine were all the right way up as they were... :silly: :side:

Looks like the AFCD are keepin' themselves busy... I'm scratching my head over the jump on a shared use trail though?! :S :blink:

First off Im totally for upgrades and maintenance of the trails.

This jump/hump looks like it will be similar to those in the practice areas. However, this trail is subject to high use unlike the practice area. Unlikely to last very long IMO.

Thumbs up to the AFCD for being proactive but when will be asked what is needed/wanted?

Hey Tom

How much dialogue have you had recently with AFCD? Are communication lines still open?

Seems silly they are building things that are going to be shred :pinch:

The PDF's for the trails are currently inaccessible. I was wondering though, how long is this new trail? It looks like a nice ride.

I think that will hopefully be fixed pretty soon. From my recollection it looks like it's about 2-3km. In any event, it's slightly longer, and definitely more challenging, than the Tin Man blue trail.

Yeah, I will try to get our Doc module back up. Our site was attacked and we were forced into an emergency upgrade. Not everything migrated smoothly and I have been ironing things out when I have the time.

Our relationship with the AFCD has never been better. Our team met with them last month to discuss plans for trails amongst other things. They are taking a very pro-active approach rather than ignoring the problems as they did for 10 years. They have been bringing in trail specialists every year for the past 3 years to help them learn about sustainable and natural trail design. Money and resources are a challenge for them as sports development is not their role in govt (thats LCSD and HAB). Most of the staff are more or less in the conservation field ... Plus MTB is still has a bad perception in some parts of the AFCD (park wardens who hand out tickets!) and with other user groups (hikers).

It will take time though. Perceptions of MTB won't change over night so we all have to keep focus on all the problem affecting the development of the activity and work together to counter them.

I highly recommend that you guys all sign up for the trail building workshop and meet the very nice Tai Lam AFCD staff in person.
