User Survey and Management Proposal for The Queen Charlotte Track in New Zealand
In the past years a lot of new kinds of sport were discovered as a form of outdoor recreation. Today the traditional walker has to share the tracks with a lot of other user groups. At present shared tracks often lead to conflicts between the old and the new user groups. One of the new groups is the Mountain Bike (MTB) group.
Mountain biking seems to be the new wave sport of the nineties, but it all started in the early to mid 1970s with a few enthusiasts in the US. It became established internationally in the early 1980s. Mountain bikes began to appear in New Zealand from the mid 1980s, and since then are growing in popularity among all ages and genders.
The popularity of the MTB is now changing the recreational patterns of the traditional outdoor user groups. A discernible number of people who have traditionally been walkers/trampers have now often changed their outdoor recreation use from walking to biking. This new type of track use seems to create conflicts in a social and physical way, and it appears that there are some problems between walkers/trampers and mountain bikers.
To get all these information different questionnaires were designed, adequate for every user group.
