Trail through trees.
Out of berm and through trees.

I had a good excuse though. I was, er, carrying out essential MBSwindon riding reconaissance in mid Wales. It wasn’t any fun, nor was the beer.

Phil reports that the power barrow had 100% utilisation along with Mr Anon’s van being filled with bags of gravel that were then tipped into wheel barrows near the drop zone. A team of four were working full time in the car park loading. The result of this was that 200m of trail was surfaced in a day and the 20 tonne load was reduced to a sad little pile. That’s another 200m of soggy trail dealt with.

The berms that were built were originally tweeked back in January 2009.

Our next big push is going to be sorting the muddy sections on the top of Piper’s hill.
