The Mountain Bike Impact


A fine YouTube post from a friend of mine, and fellow Michigander. Please give it a look.


  1. Nice job on the video. I am moderately active with CAMBR, the trail advocacy group in my area of the world, so I can appreciate the message. I also liked the look of that trail. Which trail is in the video?

      I left Joe a comment referring your question. The two of you should hook up and ride… He lives on the west coast of Michigan – Muskegon or thereabouts if memory serves. He knows all of the best trails over there. Prolific mountain biker.

      The trail is a new one in Hastings, MI called Hammond Hill Trail. Hastings is where the Barry Roubaix starts and ends. I picked that clip because it was a nice night out when we rode, but also because the trail exemplifies a trail build that fairly quickly came together through buy-in from the city, WMMBA, corporate sponsors, and volunteers from the riding community. I’m actually in Holland, but am on the Michigan’s Edge MBA that is working on a new trail in Muskegon and wanted to put this together to maybe help tell the bigger story of mountain biking and it’s positive impact. I’m happy you liked it!

        Thanks, brother.

      • I really do like the trail video.. and Holland is a few short hours drive for me. When the season starts up, I am going to look up the trail and ride it. Barry Roubaix is a ride that I have checked out and will ride one of these years.
        Jim knows how to get in touch with me. If you feel like a trip to the Chicago area, I will take you to our best trail systems — Palos, Saw Wee Kee, Raceway — and you have a place to stay as well. Bring spandex boy Jim, with you. We can show him what REAL cycling is like.
