12th April

At this time of year lots of new faces start to appear at the woods. Without fail you can predict that people who have been at the skatepark all winter will suddenly appear that the jumps with their bikes and a sheepish look on their face, ready to ride your, still slightly soft, jumps. I don’t have any objection to sharing my hard work with people who are prepared to pick up a shovel when its wet and lend a hand, especially if they have the initative and motivation to build their own trails. Sharing something makes it more fun. I don’t have a problem with people coming down to watch or chat. But am I the only one who thinks that it is incredibly rude for people to turn up at the jumps who have never so much as lifted a shovel and expect to ride? Am I just being a trail Nazi about this?
