Mother's Day Rides Been Ridden !

A fantastic event, numbers were down a little because we had been issued a storm warming with 100mm predicted for the day, we didn't get any rain until later in the afternoon and only received 10mm all up !

The tracks were in superb condition, no dust and were nicely bedded in with the 5mm from the day before.

and so it begins


after a long hiatus, we've started building trail again.  We've enlisted the help of anther young local MTB enthusiast,.  Oliver has been up helping us and learning how to build trail.  He's also keen on building his own trail on his property, hopefully he'll learn from my mistakes and not repeat them at his place

Here's the start of the alignment for the new trail.

Before any trail work started
Lookin' good !

It uses part of what I think is an old logging track that's about 40 years overgrown, albeit it's turned into more a drain over the decades but it ends up in a nce grove near the base of a cliff.


From there we'll create a hub and send trail in all different directions from there.  That's when the real hard work starts..
