I get a kick out of viewing my webstats day to day to see who’s visiting my site. It makes me feel really good when I see stats like this from a visitor today:
Continent: North America
Country: United States
Visit Length: 32 minutes 31 seconds
Page Views: 32
So someone in Maine did a search for gilbert, mtb trails and hit my site, then spent over a half an hour devouring over 30 pages of trail info.
This is the reason I started to write about the trails in Arizona. For that person in Maine, who is most likely visiting Gilbert soon and wanted to see what kind of riding is to be had.
In March I got an email from a rider in Chicago who had been using my site to plan his MTB trip Phoenix. He thanked me for all the info I’d posted and asked for some personalized trail suggestions to suit his skill and pace levels.
Thanks to all you out-of-state and international mountain bikers who make my day by visiting (and thanks to all the locals who visit regularly too). Keep on riding.
