Anyone involved with developing trails?
Hey guys, I just spoke with the county's Parks and Recreation representative about developing some trails around here.
The guy I spoke with is more of the Traffic-Ped coordinator, but is in charge of bike lanes and off-road multi-use lanes. So, he's put me in touch with the guy I need to deal with.
Anyways, a little history:
I live in Florida, Sarasota to be specific. If you don't know the area, the only elevation change we have is when you go over a bridge.
Anyways, a number of years ago the county closed down a landfill and relocated to another area. The old landfill would be good place to develope some singletrack trails and maybe even some bermed courses with some jumps for some 4x or dual type racing. I've never been involved with developing some trails or anything similar, but I've volunteered myself to do so!
Any help/advice would be great!
BTW, I'm firing off an email to IMBA about the possibilities as a first step.
