I wonder if there is a different mindset between those who primarily use trail centres and those who primarily use the bridleway/natural trail network? (yes, i know there is no such thing as a natural trail!)
Is it because those who use trail centres tend to be younger, more focused on the aspects of riding and those who ride the BW network more interested in the views of the countryside etc?
Gross generalisations there of course. I haven't been to a trail centre since i rode the Karrimor trail at CyB back in '99 or so. I do tend to find litter in places like the top of Jacob's Ladder but it seems to be more the sort of litter left behind by daytrippers as opposed to cyclists and proper walkers.
Anyway, is there a difference?
