New Coastal Crew Video, Mixed Feelings 4

The Coastal Crew put together a vid to tug at your heart-strings. Here's what they have to say about visiting some old trails built in logging territory.

This is an on going unscheduled series showing the unfortunate side of building in BC’s forests - Logging.

Logging and forestry can be a love - hate relationship in our region. On one hand it’s unfortunate to see our massive forests be mowed down, but on the other hand the hundreds of years of logging have brought us access to so many parts of the mountains we ride around our home turf.

    Oh boo hoo, so your trails get destroyed once every 10 years when they log. Just be happy that you have somewhere you can build without fear of going to jail. Spoiled Canadians.

    As a forest operations major at UBC this vid really spoke to me. Awesome work boys! It's important we manage and balance our resources with recreation-especially in BC where where forests are publicly owned. Everywhere I have ridden in BC has some connection with forest harvesting, and these places wouldn't be there without it. I know how it feels to get your trails plowed. Better renewable forests with future trail potential than shitty box homes though. I think there is a lot of opportunity for riding in conjunction with forestry in the future. There was an epic video of Brendan Howey making use of this not too long ago (The Clearcut). This summer on northern vancouver island the logging contractors sponsored downhill races (Rumblefest) on their own tenures and did all of the shuttling in their spiffy new F150's for free. I liked that.
