Trailmaster Kevin Purdy gives kudos, encourages others to make their mark.
Thanks go out to Trikke Trainer extraordinaire Dave Beerman for submitting the Aurora Reservoir Trail as a featured Trikke Trail on Trailsnet.com. It was the first Trikke Trail submission in a long time, so I conducted a brief interview with Dave to find out how the process went.
When asked how difficult it was to enter trail information on Trailsnet.com, Dave classified it as “fairly easy.” He said the entire process of registering as a user on the site and entering the trail information took him only about ten minutes and that process would go “somewhat quicker” in the future since he is now registered as a trail contributor and has the first experience under his belt.
As with most trail contributors, Dave had a little trouble entering a trail photo, but he sent that to me in an email, and I was glad to insert it into the trail entry from the administrative end. One of these days, I’ll get the photo gallery to work in a more user-friendly way, but until then, I can continue entering photos on this end, if necessary.
I hope more Trikke riders begin entering Trikke Trails on Trailsnet.com. One of the unique and admirable qualities of the Trikke community is their willingness to communicate and help each other out. Since trails are much safer and more desirable to carve on than the roads, the entire Trikke family will benefit from easy access to a nationwide network of Trikke Trails.
Please take a few minutes to visit Trailsnet.com and add your favorite Trikke Trails. If everyone just enters one trail per month, we’ll soon have a terrific treasure trove of tremendous Trikke Trails.
