Save the Grotto!

It looks like after having trails at The Grotto for the last 16 years they will now be plowed due to a complaint from one neighbor. I know a lot of locals have put many, many hours into building and maintaining these trails. Having the trails there has helped reduce crime in the area and given people a place to ride. This is very important as bikes are banned or not welcome at many of the local skateparks.

Although I am not a trails rider and this site is mainly focused on flatland I felt we had to post this story to get the word out to as many people as possible.

    Good re-post. I’m not an ecologist, but I’m pretty certain trees don’t die because they’re touching dirt.
