Cut Gate Conversations – MTB Advocacy


Today Peak District MTB, Keeper of the Peak and Ride Sheffield launched Cut Gate Path: Collaboration, Consideration, Conservation, Action? To be blunt, I think this is brilliant.

Mountain Bikers taking ownership and leading to find a solution. Cut gate is the jewel in the Peak District trail offering, we mountain bikers are leading the call for its protection and preservation. Being on the front foot, speaking with other users to see what can be done.

Mountain biking advocacy in the UK has historically been miles behind representation from other trail users, we are after all a very young sport.

Written by people who have seen what was happening and decided to do something about it. This document raises some very valid problems and concerns but also talks about solutions.

What is needed now is for it to be spread to as wide as possible. We are proud to have been supporting this project from the start. And are excited to see it progress.
