Someone has cut an illegal trail in the Albany Heritage Park. There is NO EVIDENCE that it has been cleared by mountain bikers (no tire prints anyway), but I want to make it very clear that the club DOES NOT endorse clearing of trails by ANYONE, apart from process we are going through with the AHP Trails plan.
The progress of official trails may seem slow, but we now have our first official (non-DH) trail, and further trails are in the works. The Albany MTB Club has maintained a professional and cooperative approach with the City and other stakeholders, and I don’t want to see our reputation marred by this kind of nonsense.
The trail has been reported to the City, and if it is proven that a mountain biker has done this I will put it to the club committee that they be excluded from all AMBC events indefinitely.
