The MTB Ranger for Coed y Brenin and Gwydyr has posted on Facebook complaining about riders damaging trails which are still under construction:
“This is really not cool! The trail builders have been working hard in tough conditions to sculpt a fine piece of trail. Then someone goes and carves some deep ruts through the soft surface!”
He says “I can’t wait to ride this, but its still not finished and like baking a good cake needs time to rest before it’s ready to taste!”
He explains that the new trail needs to dry out, settle and harden before it can be opened up, and by carving these ruts in the trail this thoughtless rider has allowed water to get into the trail. It’ll now need to be repaired so that it can dry out. So you lot are now stuck waiting while the trail builders fix this bit (when they could have been building some more new trails), and while it dries out (later than planned – so you’re waiting longer).
Tempting as that new trail may be, don’t be a wally [other insults may be available]. Wait until it’s ready and open. Patience is a virtue.
