10. Respect the trail – No Dig, No Ride!

A trail like the GFT didn’t happen by accident. BMBA members have spent thousands of volunteer hours building and maintaining the trail. Come out to a BMBA work day on the third Saturday of each month and meet the BMBA team, details can be found on our calendar of upcoming events. You can help maintain this great trail system and learn a little about how the trail is built and maintained. Learning to work the trail will help you understand it better, and help you ride better!
Don't modify the trail. If you see broken branches or downed tree limbs feel free to move them off the trail. If you see other issues with the dirt or shape of the trail that can't be fixed with simple stomp of the foot contact the BMBA team and we'll get one of our expert builders to look at the problem.
