The few spoil things for all of us

The majority of riders that I know respect the land and streams out west. There are a few that we meet along the trails who spoil it for everyone.

If you want to see respect, a trail at the Bighorn is 18 km and is looked after by Howard Mullen and his wife with Adopt a Trail. It is well used.

If you want to see damage try looking after a weekend when the Edmonton/Calgary 4X4 clubs hold their rallies out west (Falls creek, Marble Mountain, etc.) They do more damage in one weekend than all the ATV people could do in years.

So go after the ones who are spoiling the countryside not the normal quaders with at least 25 years experience.
