leave no trace!

January 25, 2009

Are you a responsible rider? I mean, do you take the correct measures to keep your perfect trail in shape without affecting the surrounding wildlife?…  this one might be tricky, since sometimes we tend to overreact during trail building and riding. I would say that our backyard it’s the correct spot for building our little trail for a daily basis dose of MTB personal amusement, but we must be careful while riding in protected areas.

Guys, we should pass-by and drop the rock garden at full throttle, but we shouldn’t transform the trail to suit our needs. That’s what All Mountain Biking is all about!

I recently discovered the Leave No Trace organization, their Mission Statement  is self explanatory:

The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics is an educational, nonprofit organization dedicated to the responsible enjoyment and active stewardship of the outdoors by all people, worldwide.

If you can spare 5minutes of your precious time, have a look at the Leave No Trace Principles. Nature will thank you.
