Whacked my foot on a tree stump

Snows finally melted so I've been up the woods the last two days sorting out the 4th set landing on flow line. Now about a foot taller and steeper, should be so much better and more speed for the long one.

Going to be digging most days this week, so if anyone wants to come and help that would be good. Loads of work to do on the big line, want to get the first and second done by spring.

Merry xmas

Still frozen at the woods and I'm off work for a bit so really want to do some digging got loads of things planned to do before Spring. Hope it warms up soon.

Summer pics

Got loads of pics from summer so I might as well post them.

3 new lines for next year if the ground isn't frozen all winter, should be the best summer yet.


Way too cold to do anything at the trails, grounds frozen solid and its snowed the last two days. Had a walk up there today to check everything, some bad frost damage worse than last year. Forecast says more snow, so no digging for a while.

Pic from todays digging, this is the 6th set in our new line. Put some more dirt on the landing need to beat it and the lip but the dirts really wet and sticky.

Should be able to go straight or hip on both lines.

One step closer

It looks like we're one step closer to getting the trails legal, have heard that the council have decided that we don't need to go through the planning permission process because nobody has complained about the trails in the past. Obviously this is a huge relief for us as it means the trails are safe for now.

It also means we can get on with finishing the new lines, so there will be a dig day tomorrow. There's alot of work to do to get everything ready for Spring, so it would be good if all the locals could come down and show there support. And bring a spade if you can!

Freezing, still diggin tho

Barely been above freezing for the last few weeks. Seems we're one of the only places in the Uk who haven't had any decent snow which is bad, I really like snow. At least it means we can still dig.

Went up the woods on Sunday ground was pretty frozen but managed to find a soft bit and made the long n low hip landing taller and steeper. We also did some work on the flow line the weekend before, started on the landing for the 6th set. Will get pics when I go up on the weekend.

Weekend weather is meant to be dry and not so cold so will try and arrange a dig day, got so much work to do to get stuff ready for Spring.

Here's a pic from 603 trails blog.

Always inspirational to see the stuff these guys build. One of the best spots I've ever seen.
