Stainburn has recently experienced unauthorised and destructive activities and these have now escalated to a point where it has become a real concern. We must ask that no-one take it upon themselves to remove, modify or add trail features unless at a SingletrAction Dig Day.
SingletrAction is a volunteer group using volunteer time and donations to build trails for all, and the removal of trail features by non-members is, frankly, a slap in the face to the current volunteers of the trail crew and all those who came before them.
We encourage regular attendees to suggest ideas and contribute input. If you would like to have a say in the future of trails and build things that will last – at Stainburn, or any other STA site – the only way is to get involved. We’re a friendly bunch, and are always happy to explain the current priorities to anyone who stops for a chat when we’re working on the trails, and you need no special knowledge or experience to attend a trail building day.
Lastly, if some of the features or sections of trail are causing you trouble (flat corners or rollers etc) there a number of skills courses run locally, including those by ProRideGuides (membership discounts available) who run courses at Stainburn, that will be able to build your skills, rather than you demolishing trails that other people enjoy.
Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you at a dig day soon.
