January Dalby dig day

A great turnout and fabulous day. We got stuck into the decent in Section 17 and its now quite different. Easier line on the left and there are now 3 steps on the right, hopefully something for everyone. See our facebook page for more details  

Guisborough December Dig

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

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

Adding Flow

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 …

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

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 …
