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 …View full post
I’ve been feeling particularly sentimental about SingletrAction just recently, and Stainburn in particular. It is my local trail and it is my playground, both for riding and trail-building. Also, its pretty awesome and I just happen to feel particularly proud of that right now. No reason, I just do.View full post
It was a great day at Stainburn for the February dig day, the weather was quite frankly spectacular especially given the time of year, several people ended up working in T shirts.

FC and Singletraction want to see about getting things back up and running. So FC will be holding a meeting about Dalby’s cycle trails on Sunday, 19 February. The meeting is scheduled to start at 10am and is being held in the courtyard community room at Dalby.
We all know how tricky it can be to cross over the busy road to Norwood.
Sometimes it’s down right dangerous crossing over to the natural trail, not only for people on their bikes but also for motorists, who suddenly find a load of people in the road.
The local council and Forestry have asked that for safety reasons could cyclists using the unofficial cleared lines in Norwood Edge please access the forest from Stainburn Moor car park.
We hope that Barrow Load will become an interactive way for the organisation (membership/supporters/friends) to share news and information, the content is not exhaustive but is more a pick ‘n mix of news and activities.
If you want to improve cycling opportunities in the Bradford District and have got a few minutes spare head over to the website and do your part.
