I tagged the fence post with orange paint.  Nest time the trail crew is out at RW it can be attended to.

Fence post removed (and trees cleared).   Sorry for the delay, thanks for your patience and help.

In 2012 CAMBr began working on a 5 year plan and introduced it in 2013 to our membership, land managers and industry leaders. As we are now coming up to the halfway point in the life of the plan, we wanted to bring it back to your attention, so you can see how we are doing against the plan and be reminded of the vision we have for the future of CAMBr. Obviously not everything in this plan will be realized in 5 years, some make take 10 and some may never happen. But this plan is the first step of achieving our vision for mountain biking in Chicago.

The presentation below is the one we gave at SRAM in July of 2013.

The CAMBr 2012 5 Year Plan.
This plan was developed in the summer 2012 and presented to SRAM in 2013.  Not all of these projects will happen in 5 years.  Some may take 10 or more years and some may never happen. There may be unforeseen opportunities that will materialize and flourish during that time as well. CAMBr leadership believes that without a long term plan you cannot stay the course to achieve your goals.

Since we are approaching race day, thought it might be good to have a topic on race etiquette.  I've seen good and really bad.  Of course, some people who might benefit the most from it, may not see this forum.  So hopefully, a Cambr/Race Rep will give some guidance to the field on race day as well.  Below are some tips I found and follow.  Someone from Cambr can expand on, and/or correct these.  My main 2 peeves are: 1) When I've clearly stated my intent to pass to someone I have been following (patiently waiting for an opening) and they are slower, but then try to speed up or block me passing when there is room...don't be that guy.  2) Those who can't make an obstacle/hill but remain in the way (pushing, etc), on the preferred path a rider would take.  Anyway, here ya go...

Lapped riders yield to leaders.

If multiple riders are vying for the same position, the lead rider does not have to yield his position to the challenging rider.  However, a leading rider may not bodily interfere with the intent to impede another rider’s progress.  The leading rider owns the track. The overtaking rider is responsible for passing.

A rider overtaking another with the intent to pass should voice “On Your Left”, “On Your Right”, or “When you get time” loud enough to be heard by the slower rider. The slower rider should respond loud enough to be heard. If a rider catches another rider and does not voice for a pass, the caught rider may presume the rider behind is comfortable where they are for the time being.

Riders being passed should give as much room to the passer as is safe for their skill level.

Racers riding their bike have the right of way OVER racers pushing bikes. Racers pushing should stay on the least rideable portion of the path when being passed. A racer pushing or carrying their bicycle can overtake a racer riding their bicycle, provided they do not interfere with the rider’s progress.

If you have a mechanical failure, move off the trail as soon as possible. If there is another racer behind you, you should move out of his or her way immediately.

If you fail to negotiate an obstacle or hill, get out of the other racers way immediately. Do not stop at the top of a hill or at the very end of an obstacle if it will cause the riders behind you to bottle up.

In the event a rider crashes in front of you:
    You may go around if you can do so safely.
    If the rider is in need of medical attention, provide it if possible.
    You are not required to provide assistance: If you are unwilling or unable, please alert the next staff member or volunteer you see.
