This thread will attempt keep up to date on trail advocacy campaigns currently requiring action.

It's worth noting that behind there scenes there is pretty constant stream of lobbing by riders and their supporters. Many people do a lot of work on this, which inevitably leads to some government or local authority department putting out some plan or strategy or policy document for public comment.

This is where you come in: Without public support for such documents, all the work in the background to persuade authorities to get this far will have been for nothing!

New Bike Advice

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I’m starting to think about my next bike am a bit out of touch with what’s out there so am trying to shortcut my research by asking NoBMoBers for some tips.

I do cross country marathons and my only 2 criteria are it must be dual suspension and it must be able to fit 2 drink bottles. The latter being the hurdle. I also have a preference for 1x11 or 1x12 and sub 11kg.

So far I’m aware of only 3 bikes that fit the bill - Specialized Epic, Cannondale Scalpel & Canyon Lux.

Are there any others I should be looking at?

Cheers
