Guisborough January Maintenance

Blocked Drainage Channel

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 …

Guisborough December Dig

Ghille Kettle in action

Today’s dig saw us heading back up to Les’1 to try and make a little more progress. With a small team of 4 we decided to work from the bottom up, since pushing the wheelbarrow up the muddy bank is challenging at the best of times. The surface was rather slippy today, after a few …

Patching Up Les

High quality trail fairy work =/

Last month we began work on finishing the bottom section of Les’1 which unfortunately Clixby’s ran out time to complete. The existing line was straight and very slippery with mud. We added an extra corner with the intention of adding more as we worked our way down the trail. Unfortunately some small-minded individuals decided they …

Go Snake


Carrying on from our evening session a couple of weeks ago, we cracked on with adding some curves to the ‘Black Track’ today. We had a few returning members join us today too which was great to see. Bill, Matt, Lindsey and Gary all coming along to get involved once more. The felling is still …

Guisborough Evening Session

Where's the trail gone?

We held our 1st evening trailbuilding session in a long time last night. The hope was to get some new faces along as lots of people claim not to be able to make a weekend dig due to family, work, etc. There were no new faces. So a crew of usual suspects cracked on with …

Guisborough August Maintenance Day

Black Track - Guisborough

Its August but that’s not scaring the rain away. With possible storms due for this months dig day a few people were put off coming along. In the end it was just myself and Sean, but as always I was suprised at just how much we got done. Due to the lack of volunteers we …

Sweating it out in the Sauna at the Dalby dig day

We knew at before we started today that it would be a small crew as we move into the summer holidays. But it just goes to show its not the numbers that matter but the dedication. So in what can only be described as a sauna it was an amazing effort from Stuart, Steve, Robert, …

A Great Day For Ducks

Les'2 berm

Having looked at the weather forecast beforehand I was expecting rain around dinnertime at Guisborough, so that would give us plenty of time to sort the last berm on Les’ 2. The weather gods had different plans however. As we arrived on-site just before 10am the light drizzle started. Not too bad we thought, we …

Forget the footie, get trail building


We weren’t expecting a huge turnout for the June dig day at Dalby when we realised that the first England game of the world cup would be shown late the night before. So it was no surprise that there were only 6 volunteers. Mind you I’m sure it can’t all be blamed on the World …

SingletrAction Guisborough June Dig Day

Well it was a bit of a solo effort at Guisborough today. Wandered up with a nice lady who is interested in joining us at some future digs, but being only me there wasn’t much for me to show her, so we had a good chat and she left me to it. The undergrowth is …
