Just a quick report for today’s snowy maintenance day.
It was crisp underfoot as we headed up to Les’2 & 3 this morning, but soon after arriving the snow started to fall. As we worked we could feel the ground getting harder as the frost set in further.
Aim of the day was to clear drainage and do a little patching up of braking bumps. I also wanted to guide riders onto the correct line, as they seem to be riding down the drainage channel at the side of the trail at one point.
We cleared the channel and lined the trail with some rocks to make it more obvious which way the trail goes. Its all about getting your line right into the drop before it, if you want to keep your speed.
We cleared some more drainage and then proceeded to fill a few braking ruts at the first drop. The ground was pretty frozen by this point and covered with snow. As a result I didn’t take any after pics, as there wasn’t much to see.
Many thanks to today’s volunteers, Dan for bringing up the tools, and diggers, Gary, Lindsey, Ram, and nice to meet 1st timer Graham.
