BRING: Water, food, shovel (if you prefer your own shovel), 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).
If you have any questions, please ask away.
BBQ and cold drinks provided for free to volunteers at the end of the build.

BYO food if you have any special food requirements.

Builds usually run from 8am-1pm. If you need to leave early or are arriving later in the day, please message me on this forum or contact us via our contact form at www.lysterfieldmtb.com

Hope to see you there.
Cheers.

Hey Nate,

How will you know what trails to work on if the course is yet to be confirmed?

We will be working along Middle repairing berms and completing drainage along the whole trail. We will also be working on Redgum to remove some hazards and also drainage.

Depending on numbers/time we will also aim to work on the State MTB course with drainage and to trim some overgrown shrubs.
If you are arriving late to the build, we will most likely be on Middle/Redgum trails.
Hope to see you there :) BBQ provided for free to those who help out.

Cheers

Count me in.

I have to give something back  :) and finally I have no more clashes in my agenda.

No steel capped shoes but my old runners should do the work.

No special dietary requirements so Barbie will be fine.

I haven't have any formal training on trail building so I trust you will guide me on how can I best made myself useful.

Cheers

Looking at the course, seems the main job for the day will be building a North West single track descent from the Trig to Aneurisum :o

Great idea. I'll second the proposal.

Sorry Craig and Alf, that fire trail descent is necessary so that the backlog of riders behind both of you have room to pass

You make sure you provide the band aids they earn whilst trying to pass at 60km/h on sketchy gravel around a corner.

They can try, but they'll never live up to my crashing skills

We had a hard working crew of 14 volunteers who gave up a beautiful morning to help contribute to making the trails at Lysterfield awesome! What we achieved in one build:
Pictures Here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Lysterfieldmtb/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1335977556439435

REDGUM TRAIL:
- Lots and lots of drained cleared.
- A lot of unnecessary B lines blocked off.
- Hazardous PVC pipes removed from the trail which were poking out in the middle of the trail.

MIDDLE TRAIL:
- A LOT of drainage along the whole track.
- B line blocked off next to gravel tabletop, new b line made clearer and tabletop re shaped. - Gravel placed before boardwalk to create smoother transition ontop.
- Drainage cleared and b-lines on rock armoured dip blocked off to keep riders on the armoured section.
- Rebuilding of kicker and jump into the berms.
- Rebuilding of berms further up on middle.

State MTB Course:
- A LOT OF shrub trimming to make the corners clearer.

Support us by attending our next build in June (date TBC), donating to us or signing up as a member to the club on our website at www.lysterfieldmtb.com . All monies raised from our VES race, club memberships and donations go back into the trails at Lysterfield Park.
