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

2014_Dalby_June_rake

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 …

Anyone for Oblivion?

The trail opened out

It was the monthly dig day up at Dalby today and while it was slightly cut short by the SingletrAction AGM and the track barrow running out of fuel we still managed to get so good work done. Section 31 also known as Oblivion was the target for the day carrying on from where we …

The clocks have gone forward!

Drainage at the bottom of the Black

So what if they have, I hear you say, well it means that with the lighter nights and we can start our evening raids on the trails at Stainburn. We made our second visit this week to finish revamping the drainage at the end of the Black and Aldo’s so hopefully we have solved the …

If you had gone down into the woods today you’d have had a great surprise

demo_bikes

Well if you had gone to Stainburn there were Santa Cruz bikes everywhere, not mention Orange bikes and Niners too. Not that you would have known it had you arrived before 9 a.m. the car park was virtually empty, it was cold and windy, very windy. But suddenly there was a flurry of activity as …

A polite request.

Stainburn has recently experienced unauthorised and destructive activities and these have now escalated to a point where it has become a real concern. We must ask that no-one take it upon themselves to remove, modify or add trail features unless at a SingletrAction Dig Day.

2 Dogs, 5 Kids and 13 Adults

That's a lot of trail

So what do you get with 2 dogs, 5 kids and 13 adults an unbelievably great dig day. It’s been a long while since we have had such a large turn out for a dig day at Stainburn, and its was quite surprising given the rather poor weather forecast. Drizzly showers first thing followed by …
