Riders - your views on trails are needed!
Awesome trails are THE fundamental factor in getting more folks out on bikes and enjoying mountain biking at all levels.
A new EU funded project, DIRTT, is aiming to help improve guidelines and training for mountain bike trail designers, builders and volunteers – with the end goal of increasing the quantity and quality of trails for riders.
To help prioritise areas of training, and understand the needs and wants of riders across Europe, the partners have developed a 5-minute survey which they hope riders can complete by 15th May 2020.
Your input to this survey is vital in ensuring that the direction of future trail building reflects the desire of our riding community.
What trails do you like to ride?
What trails should there be more of?
Are there trails being built which you love? Or hate?
Want to know more about the DIRTT Project - here you go.
DIRTT Project – Developing Inter-European Trail Builder Training (DIRTT Project) – consists of a number of partner organisations whose aims are to develop trail design and building guidelines with an educational framework and associated professional training programmes.
We believe that by working together with partners across Europe we can share resources, knowledge and ideas and help mountain biking continue to grow across Europe.
The partners in the project are from a number of backgrounds including: advocacy organisations, sports associations, governmental, educational institutions, tourism, as well as private enterprises in the sector. The countries involved are Switzerland, Portugal, Scotland, Netherlands, Denmark and Norway.
