Awesome work guys,  I wish I could have been there to help.  I've had my own working bee going on with an ensuite reno.   Any news on when we can ride the new berms?

Just a thought for the bog area after the boardwalk on Hug trail. Went to Buxton today and noticed they had a shipping pallet in the ground for a wet area.
Thought this could be an easy quick fix for this area until we can extend the board walk. A few pallets after the boardwalk and maybe one in the soft bog hole just around the corner could help this when the trails are open to recover and dry up a bit.

Maybe even those plastic pellets as they would last longer and pallets should be cost effective. Can all be replaced later bit would help hold it all together when it's back in use.

New member here.  I've got a fair bit of spare time at the moment so let us know when the next build is on and I'll be there.

Good work to everyone who attended, the berms are draining after all this rain!
All the new trails are draining nicely, they are very slippery but there are no puddles!

Love the berms,   I have one concern with that new section, maybe 50m past where the trail starts and turns off near the big log, there's a corner that's a sharp right turn off camber down the hill and I slide out on it every time. I have only riden it twice, in the dark, but was that design intentional, or is will another berm be built?
