Digging It at Stainburn – April.

The Tool TreeLets not kid ourselves it’s been cold year so far. Dig days up until now have involved thermal layers and when we have swung a mattock into the frozen ground we’ve many times nearly blinded people with the shrapnel.  So it was a joy to get up on Sunday morning and find a clear blue sky waiting behind the curtains.  A quick breakfast, shove a sandwich, a boost bar, and a bowl for the dog in my bag, and then get my boots on the while the hound goes apoplectic with joy.  He knows the signs, its a day in the woods.

Stainburn Black Spring Clean

The steps of Terror in their clean state

Terror! (the steps thereof)

It’s that time of year again!  Last year a bunch of the Stainburn Trail Crew regulars took the Warren Boulder Trail by the scruff of its boulders and gave it a cleaning it would never forget.  Finding lost trail, redefining the line and giving a few bits of loving repair where it was needed to bring the most technical trail in England back to its former glory.

To make sure trails are kept in this condition, and help them last as long as possible we will be doing the same again for the next month.  Starting on the 10th of April evening sessions will be brushing and raking the trails in preparation for what can only be a better summer than last year.

Lloyds TSB Volunteers at St Ives

We must be doing something right yet again, because for the second time this year we’ve had volunteers from LLoyds TSB wanting to help us out on a dig day.

Back in June we had a group of volunteers help out repairing the jumps at Thackley, everyone seemed to have a great time and we got loads of work done.

We were please to be contacted by another group from Lloyds TSB’s grad scheme a few weeks ago, wanting to get a taste of what SingletrAction do on our dig days.  We could have picked any one of our current sites but thought it would be the perfect opportunity to continue the good work we’ve already started at St Ives In recent months.

And so it begins……

After all the boring but very necessary, behind the scenes graft, the easy bit has started!

On the morning of Sunday 30 September we ignored the nasty forecast and met up in the car park on Harden Moor to break ground on the St Ives project.

And the Jedi winner is..

 

Well I was the lucky git who won a space on a Jedi training session with the Singletraction raffle. I entered mainly because of the prize as I am a sucker for bike related competitions so had no real idea what I had entered or won until I saw Tony pull my name out of his helmet. I duly contacted Tony, and booked myself in for the September Jumps and Drops public course to eek out the end of summer and leant to jump on dry trails (if only…). It was my second trip up to UK Bike Skills, my first was back in August last year so plenty of time for me to forget everything and get back into my bad habits to keep Tony busy.
