NATIONAL MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL PROJECTS
As reported in previous editions of this newsletter, MTBA in collaboration with stakeholders from across the MTB industry have been working on projects to help guide the future of MTB trail building in Australia.
The working group has completed preliminary investigations into a range of options to deliver:
• National MTB trail standards/guidelines
• A professional certification/ accreditation framework and curriculum program
• A not for profit peak body to represent the Australian MTB trail building industry.
A survey has been developed to help gather feedback from the MTB community, land management agencies and trail builders.
To participate in this survey and provide feedback you must have read the option paper (http://www.mtba.asn.au/trails/) for each of the above projects. Click here (https://goo.gl/forms/Me6I7wPdNdTPlsaJ2) to access the survey.
State and territory land management agencies and trail builders will receive an email inviting them to participate in the survey and provide additional feedback through targeted consultation.
