Trail build report: Sat 8th Jan 2011

Pile of gravel and power barrow.
20 tonnes waiting to be used.

This was our first build day of the year after a time when many people had been struck down with man flu and other build days had been hampered by snow and ice. We were really keen to get on with our plans to surface the muddy sections of the trail.

Brandon tool hire delivered the power barrow first thing in the morning. Tony had arrived early so the two of us started work on surfacing a short section of trail (see map below). We were soon joined by a new recruit who’s name eludes me (sorry). Due to the muddy nature of the section we dumped a load of slabs into the trail first.

We had a change of personell at midday when Mr Anon arrived, along with Chris, then Ben and Lee. With the all women ride going on then Pete joined us too. A new berm was added after the track crossing and we also shifted a lof of mud to double the size of two further berms.

It was a really good start to our trail building year, with 100m of surfaced trail completed by the end of the day.
