Chainless Challenge – By Jase

You know that moment when you realise you have started something you can’t hope to pull off.  You’ve opened your big old gob and your bluff has been called! Well six months ago that was me.

Feeling pretty proud of the Descent Line Extension and the huge job of reinstating the flow to the top third, post Ed Oxleys Flow course and inspired by Si B’s run minus his broken chain I uttered the fatal words “ We should hold a Chainless event…”, “and a BBQ”. At this point everybody said “sounds good, get on with it”. And that’s when the cold sweats started…

Communicating risk in outdoor recreation.

We’ve got a favor to ask if you’ve got a few minutes spare. SingletrAction has been asked If we could help Paddy Harrop with his Masters Degree in public communication.

Paddy Asks:
My masters degree project is focussing on the use of signage to communicate risk to mountain bikers. If you can spare ten minutes to complete this survey I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks
Paddy

Gisburn Forest Visitors Opinions

The volunteers up at Gisburn have been hatching a plan to develop a small visitor hub at Gisburn Forest. If you are one of the many people who visit the forest Martin would like to hear what you think. If you can spare a few minutes it would be a great help if you could fill in the short questionnaire. Just follow this link http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/N25QDLL.

This isn’t a SingletrAction project but we do like to offer support and encourage trailbuilding and development where we can. On a typical trailbuilding day at Gisburn it’s usually possible to find a few volunteers from SingletrAction and PMBA.
