Angus the trail building dog was once more on hand last weekend, but this time he was making himself useful and weighing down some Terram kindly donated by Clixbys Trail Builders while we laid it out in the trail bed.
There’s no-one we can’t find a useful job for in the cause of building better trails! Come along to one of our digs see how you can help!
Awesome! dig day at Stainburn today. We arrived and my god it was cold but this afternoon was just stunning. The revised climb from the bottom descent line extension is now open. But loose until it settles but definitely open.

Huge thanks for Forestry Commission for the late Xmas present of matching piles of Aggregate and Stainburn and Guisborough.
They always get us just what we’ve been wanting. You guys!!!
Additional thanks to Stuart for organising and overseeing delivery!
Now lets turn that heap into trail!
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.
