Working with Communities of Mountain Bikers

On Saturday, March 17, I spoke at the CT Land Conservation Conference.  I shared the story of the evolution of Rockland and its successes in land conservation, community engagement, problem-solving, and mountain biking. The presentation had its intended effect on getting some folks who have been hesitant to work with MTBers in the past to reconsider.   Some land managers invited conversations to start new trails, others encouraged to revitalize old partnerships.

 Thank you to Joe, Spencer, Kim, Jon, Paula, and the great standing room audience at the event~

  1. Congratulations on the success at the park! As a resident of the town, I’m proud when my skiing/biking friends from other places talk about Rockland
