Westside Trail Federation had a booth at the inaugural Pedal Nation Portland Bike Show hosted at Oregon Convention Center (April 10th/11th).  Our group setup a booth to showcase status of main projects (proposed DH network in Tillamook State Forest and a freeride skill area at Stub Stewart State Park).

There's just something about the idea of being able to reserve/rent a custom built machine to use for building mountain biking specific trails that seems SO right!   Westside Trail Federation sent a letter of support to Northwest Trail Alliance (NWTA) for their RTP grant application filed this month.

Check out our letter of support and the story about the NWTA start-up program.

If you've got specific comments about the program, you should post them on the nw-trail.org site (use the link to story above).

Muddy smiles at 2nd W.T.F. shuttle day fundraiser

In spite of downpour part of day at Black Rock which turned upper forest roads on Mt Brown to mud pits (the BRMBA constructed trails on other hand drained exceptionally well and held up under constant pounding of riders), the October 17th fundraiser shuttle day by Westside Trail Federation created lots of muddy smiles...   Riders made the best of it with great attitudes and W.T.F. volunteers, used to getting it done no matter what, shifted gears on the fly to figure out how to keep running trucks in the muck - the small nimble 16' stakebed truck could run to top of mountain while the other two could do shorter runs 3/4 up the mountain.

Here's a highlight video by Jason Van Horn (thanks Jason!) with ihatebikes.net that is good overview of the riding conditions during event --

Thank you to all participants and volunteers who helped make this event a success!  There were about 145 participants.   Not sure what the average number of runs riders got in but Sittingduck posted to message forum that he'd done 8 runs.   That's not a bad days riding at Black Rock!

 

Donated funds are budgeted mostly to be used for purchasing cache of trail building tools for use at W.T.F. projects including proposed Tillamook State Forest DHtrail system (nearing construction ready) and trail signage/kiosk for L.L. Stub Stewart State Park mountain biking trails (currently under construction).   Some of funds will go towards ongoing operational business expenses (web site, marketing materials, PO Box, etc).

Check the General messageboard on westsidetrailfederation.org for additional comments and links to photos people are sharing from the event.   Be sure to let us know your thoughts!

 

Transition Bike Company and One Ghost Industries (sharing space under Keen Footwear canopy at event) were both stoked to be there to support event - and generating interest in their products was simply a bonus.

Could this be THE same Transition Double captured in Pinkbike 10/18/2009 POD shot? Hmmmm... I'd put money on that!  And, it appears to have the magical feature of being completely resistant to mud.

Polls

Would you be willing to pay for a Trailhead Parking Pass for the ability to park and shuttle a Downhill/Freeride mountain bike destination trail network on public lands? Proceeds of the revenue would pay for Oregon Department of Forestry staff time.
