PinkBike asked trail builders worldwide what really irritates them when it comes to mountain bikes and here are their top six.


  1. Skid through corners.
  2. Braid trails by riding around features.
  3. Change features to match your ability. (Don’t make features harder OR easier. Walk the obstacle if you can’t ride it).
  4. Ride in the mud (Ride through mud puddles, not around them).
  5. Ride closed trails.
  6. Litter.
