Trail Build/Maintenance Day

BRING: Water, food, shovel (we do have some in the PV trailer), good shoes (preferably steel capped) and appropriate clothing for weather.

Please let us know if you're attending by replying on this forum thread (so we can organise tools and food etc).

BYO food if you have any special food requirements.
Hope to see you there.

Hi Nate
I've got to pick someone up from the airport at 7am but will head straight over after that. I've only got a couple of hours spare so all good if I just pitch in for a bit?
Will bring a shovel and I'll come find you on Buckle Down as soon as I get there....
Cheers, Lisa

Hi everyone,
We have plenty of shovels in our trailer, so if you dont have one dont worry.

Make sure you bring some gardening gloves and water.

The parks vic depot is best accessed from Reservoir rd off Heatherton rd. Plan to arrive about 10 mins early.
Keep Rollin' Rollin' Rollin.

We will be there until around 12-1pm ish, so if you arrive late or leave early, riding your bike in is the easiest option :)

Cheers all

A great turnout of 16 volunteers for this morning's trail build along Buckle Down, contributing over 80 hours of volunteer work to the park. Over 6 tipper loads of dirt moved and placed onto the trail. Larger rollers, bigger berms and a lot of drainage done. You're going to want to ride this after Follow Me! Kudos to all who helped out during the rain! Plenty of new faces, which was great to see.

Great work guys (& girls no doubt).  Rode the trail on Saturday - I think the timing was perfect.  The rain has consolidated all your good work, the improved feature is solid and riding beautifully.
