Cademuir Trails – used for tweedlove
Mate just text to say he was out tonight and some guy was walking up them putting big rocks and logs over the trails to stop anyone oing down.
Are the forestry closing these like some of the ones at Glentress ?
Or do I need to run dog in morning round Cademuir and clear some trail.Posted 4 years ago
Go ahead and argue with them if you want, I couldn’t care less about the technicalities of the land reform act. Pissing them off is definitely a way to make it easier to run events in future.
Every race that is held in Glentress and Innerleithen (and I’d imagine other FC areas) has the route submitted to the FC for approval 6 weeks prior to the event, no changes allowed after that date (except in exceptional circumstances). The IXS Cup is the perfect example – new trail which must not interfere with other trails (hence many small trail gaps) and had to be closed after each event. The IXS track was properly closed off, logs and branches all the way down it as a deterent (which didn’t actually work)Posted 4 years agobigjimSubscriber
They had problems with someone doing this in the approach to the event, laying logs and boulders on the trail and destroying jumps. I think they would be very interested in the description of the person, will alert them to this thread.
The condition of building stage 4 in the forest was that it would be closed after the event, which is understandable. This doesn’t sound like the trail builder dismantling the trail though.Posted 4 years agoproteusMember
Any idea which section of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act gives them that authority?Posted 4 years ago
You’ll be wanting a copy of the Forestry Commission Scotland / Scottish Cycling agreement (but applies to all mtb event organisers on NFE) from a couple of years back:
