alright Fenty... you joked with the kids at John Eaton about starting a Tri-Team...

HIGH SCHOOL CYCLING HAS A NATIONAL INTERSCHOLASTIC ASSOCIATION
http://www.nationalmtb.org/

maybe Adrian Fenty can answer the question...
"If high school students in the DC area wanted to be part of the NICA... where would they train?"

oh yea...
the kids would drive an hour plus each way to Frederick or Patapsco... each time and every time they wanted to ride
no problem. all the kids who want to mountain bike have access to a car
and
all these kids have all this free time to just drive around

HOLD ON... THERE IS A BETTER SOLUTION
all the National Park Service would need to do is take down the NO BIKES signs in Rock Creek Park
then the kids could ride locally

once the trails are open to mountain bikes invite MORE AND IMBA to take a look at things to make the trails more sustainable
I am confident that the bodies would come out like an army for trail days to make this happen!

what would it cost the National Park Service?
NOTHING!
all they have to do is allow the bikes to ride on the natural surface trails in Rock Creek Park

so many of these trails are nasty off camber revealed roots
reroute the trails

high school cross country runners would benefit as well would the cities hikers, runners, dog walkers, and bird watchers
oh yea... and of course local mountain bikers

oh man... Washington, DC needs to get on this momentum

the positive ripple effect of opening the natural surface trails of Rock Creek Park to mountain biking would be fantastic

not to get off topic....
after that... there can be a push for BIKE CLUBS in schools around the city
Bike Clubs for more than just mountain biking
Bike Clubs for bikes in general.
but that is getting off topic


what would Fenty need to do?
he would just have to get behind the idea...
there is momentum
