There's a bit of a discussion going on in MTQ at the moment about attracting new members and increasing entries at events.
I know that whenever trailquests get mentioned on STW there are people who like to sneer at them as if trailquesting is on a level with wearing a cardigan with buttons on the front or listening to Val Doonican.
It does make me wonder how many of those people could ride 50+km of mixed terrain in 3 hours while navigating and route planning though.
It seems bizarre to me that HONC can sell out all 1200 places within 2 hours or MM can sell out 2500 places within days, yet if there was a trailquest covering 100 square km of the Cotswolds, or with 30 Control Points to find on and around the Eastnor Estate, we'd get about 50 entries.
So why don't you ride trailquests ?
What is it in particular that doesn't appeal ?
What would you like to see changed to make you have a go ?
