Trail Advocacy For Dummies & What To Do About Poor Trail Etiquette with Susie Murphy of the SDMBA

Colin welcomes the Executive Director of the San Diego Mountain Biking Association, Susie Murphy, to provide a deeper understanding on some recent Rock Fights.

First the pair breakdown the issues that Colin detailed in last November's episode of THE ROCK FIGHT about poor trail etiquette and electric mountain bikes.

Then Colin and Susie get into the politics and challenges (regardless of state or activity) of trail advocacy, the impact of the work being done by folks like the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable and how new trails are built and maintained. Bird nesting, fairy shrimps and butterflies...oh my!

Lastly Susie details how anyone listening can get involved with the trails in their own backyard.
