Adaptive Mountain Biking: Trail Design for Accessibility and Reduced Risk
December 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
This webinar from American Trails will focus on trail design for accessibility and risk reduction for adaptive mountain biking.
This webinar will provide an introduction to the topic, including general definitions, trail signage opportunities, as well as trails managed use, class, designated use, etc. and how there is overlap in sustainable trail building tactics (methodologies) and usability for all.
This webinar will also speak about adaptive mountain biking specifically and the HOW (how to get trail crews involved, their buy-in/support, making change, being inclusive. This will also include work that has been done to create guidelines (no standards until a Natl Agency adopts them) for trails and a general categorization of devices and capabilities.
Lastly, the webinar will cover the design and technical aspects of adaptive mountain biking trails.
