    Its April, the weather has changed with the snow finally melting on the mountains. Before we go riding the usual ritual of cleaning up the winter debris in the yard has to be done. We are so fortunate in this area to have TRAIL GNOMES. They are rarely seen by mere mortals, but we all know they are out there by the results of their tireless work. While we all spend a weekend cleaning our little yards from the ravages of winter the TRAIL GNOMES clear the hundreds (if not thousands) of trails we love to ride during the long days of summer.

    While riding in our favourite area we often wonder why and even how did some of these trails even come into existence? Not to mention how did that bridge ever get built?
    TRAIL GNOMES






    Yup the TRAIL GNOMES, the unsung heroes of the off road riders, without them we probably would be stuck in a parking lot in the valley somewhere.

    The TRAIL GNOMES have been very busy at Tamihi and have cleared, brushed and mattocked there way to bring you 60 KMs of clear trails at the Tamihi Riding area for the annual DSBC Nubie Ride April 29 2018

    Look as some of the sweetness that will be the BEE route

    TRAIL GNOMES are elusive, as seen here they only eat their meals in the middle of the forest, so you won't find them sitting around a picnic table

    TRAIL GNOMES are also very humble and don't seek the spotlight or recognition, but that does not mean we should just ignore them and hope they just keep on doing the great job they are doing keeping our trails open to all to enjoy. They are hard to spot but when you do find one, you will know. So don't forget to show your appreciation by thanking them for their hard work. And if you ask nicely they might even invite you on one of their trail adventures (make sure you bring good gloves).

    It's a little known secret but most TRAIL GNOMES belong to local clubs (Like DSBC). TRAIL GNOMES ask for nothing and dig deep into their own pockets every time they go out. Clubs like DSBC like to reward the TRAIL GNOMES by purchasing things to make their hard work a little easier. Things like Saws, hammers, screws, axes, shovels, ropes,files, gas, oil, chainsaws, ribbon, staples, staplers and the Mattock, what's a mattock you ask? Its like a French Whoe but with an axe on one side.
