Starting in 1993 or 1994 or so, I wrote up a bunch of SF Bay Area
and Santa Cruz MTB trail descriptions. When Ross Finlayson set up
his very well-organized MTB-oriented web site at Stanford (1995 or
1996?), I was happy to see my trail descriptions as a part of it.
I haven't kept the descriptions updated.
Ross' site is now at
Its name has been
"The Internet's mountain bike park"
for quite a while.
I also correlated, contributed to, collated, and compiled the
Dictionary of Mountain Bike Slang, with a lot of
help from the readers and writers of the
newsgroup, back before it got moderated and then died.
My version was just a plain text list, first posted
to r.b.o-r in July of 1995. Jim Frost converted it to HTML
and it has lived at his site,
for the past several years. I made a local copy
19 May 2002.
