Jack 'n Jill continues
Nymboida local Clayton has been helping out on the trails lately. Clayton and his brother Sebastian both enjoy riding them so why not help us build new stuff ? Few hands making lighter work 'n all. Clayton has been out several times, Sebastian the once so far. Clayton especially is coming along and getting stuck in, so a great big thank you to him.
|Clayton hard at it|
As always, pictures speak louder than words
|Sebastian taking a break under Toni's watchful eye|
|Tree log crossing coming along|
Plenty of obstacles on this trial, it's a little harder, with jumps, berms to "rail", logs to cross, tree stumps to ride over and plenty of other great obstacles, combined with some stepper trail, it makes it a fast, thrilling descent.
|Berm is finsihed|
|More trail features prior to construction|
Phase IIThe photo's above are all of Phase I. This can easily be accessed from Glenn's Ck Rd and will be open quite soon. Phase II has had the corridor cleared but has not yet been roughed out prior to construction starting. Lots of back breaking pick work to come as the side slope is quite steep.
|Top of phase II, side slope is 28% !|
The noise !
|Ear Plugs ?|
Currently we have an influx of Cicadas. The noise ! Apparently they are very bad once every 5 years or so, this year seems to be it. They were bad back in 2009, five summers ago, so that seems about right. Definitely above 90dB ! Out in the bush the noise is so loud, ear plugs are needed
