Does the sight of the engineless motorcycle brigade attacking the country side with spades in the name of our sport upset anyone else or is it just me!

Honestly, it's not north shore, it's somerset, get a grip! :shock:

If I get banned from riding my favourite trails because of these idiots heads will roll! :evil:

I agree to some extent... Don't see anything wrong with jumps etc being built in the bomb holes / quarrys though - nobody else uses them for anything...

But yeah, out on the trails it ain't right.

I'm with ziggy, there is a place for jumps etc but its not on normal trails. Respect all other trails users and they'll respect you. Were I live we have a site for dirt jumps and because we are very friendly with the local walkers etc they see it as something positive for the young 'uns to do.

Okay, that's cool, we have some disused small quarries round here and that's fine, I was thinking of some of the natural single track on the Quantocks.
