That old dog Bill has been holding out on me and building a BMX track at Draper!? And here I thought him and several other were just out there giving up their own time to mow and scrape sand. All that fun stuff. I am with allmtrider, I would be seriously stoked to have a real BMX track somewhere nearby. Seriously though, going along with what HoneyHam posted, there is a reason for what is done and he provided a pretty good explanation. And I challenge anyone local to claim they have more knowledge and experience on all the great trails in the lower 48 than this guy.
I could post and actually started to post a response, justifying the items complained about here, but Jeff and James did a good job on this issue and I would be basically repeating what they stated. I also prefer face to face and around here it is hard to justify not doing that if you have real concerns. Not to mention most people tend to act more like humans and less like the south end of a north bound horse when they do not have a keyboard to hide behind. Shane and I meet up at Draper every Wednesday evening. Usually have a few others meet up with us for a relatively easy ride. Makes for a good time to discuss issues and shoot the bull. Generally followed up with chilling out in the parking lot afterwards and enjoying a cold refreshment before heading home. Fellowship, it sure beats being a drama queen on the internet. Lately we have been hanging out with the racer crowd following the weekly crit. Kind of a shady bunch, but they tend to grow on you after awhile. Maybe later this summer, we will move the ride to Bluff for awhile. Anyway, if you see me at the parking lot or out on the trail, give me a shout. I believe I am the only one in the OKC area that rides an orange Vassago Jabberwocky SS and an orange On-One Inbred 1X9, both set up rigid. Kind of hard to miss. I will make time to listen and although some might find it hard to believe, I promise not to get on my soapbox and rant. Sorry about that Tony.
If you really want to discuss something and not just rant on a forum, shoot me an email, give me a time and place, and we will go for a ride.
