Catty craziness

Mark Potoczny's youtube - "These are three runs from Catty trails taken at the Halloween Jam 2011. In order the runs are named Drunks, Wam Bam, and West Side. Other riders include Dunny, Ryan Wert, Dougie Richie, and Clint Reynolds!"

Giants of dirt

 Holy moly, what a legend. RIP Dane.

In for a long wait

Still waiting for the council to get back to us on the surveys, it seems that the outcome of the environmental survey is going to be decisive. There's an idea that we can turn the area into a nature reserve incorporating the trails which would be awesome, some people think that we got a good chance of making this happen, but some are saying we're doomed, who knows!

It's crazy that the environmental impact is such a big factor, just the other side of the woods the council want to build hundreds of new houses surely the impact of the trails is totally insignificant in comparison. How can the same people think on one hand that its ok to tear up 8 hectares of woods and fields for houses, and then on then get so worried about the environmental impact of a few mounds of dirt, its ridiculous!

Help save Clyne woods here

Hopefully we will have some news in the next few weeks.

Some pics from last weekend, a few tarps blown of but no damage. Moss is really growing good, if we get a mild winter it'll be crazy next year.

Planning update

Ok alot of people are asking what's going on with the trails so here's the situation. There's not really much progress yet, we haven't submitted the planning and we're waiting for the council to finish doing surveys so at the moment this is whats holding everything up. Hopefully this will be finished soon and then we can get the planning application submitted.

So for now the trails are going to remain tarped up and no building or riding is allowed. The council are still supporting us and so are the local community so I think we still have a chance.

Walk in the woods

Made the trip to Swansea today to check on the trails. Everything was good apart form some missing tarps but I sorted that now. Still really dry up there and leaves everywhere.

Couple of people came up to have a look at the trails and gave me directions to a rope swing in the woods so I checked it out on the way home. Surprised how awesome it was really, pretty sketchy, super fun though.

Some news

Just a little bit of good news, a few of us went to a meeting with a local community group, the Clyne Valley Community Project (CVCP), they had some concerns about the project. Our guys went to explain the positives of formalising the trails, I didn't attend but I think it went well. I hope we can work with these guys, having visited their website it seems that we have alot of common objectives with regard to encouraging the use of the valley by the community.

Here's our latest save Moos edit,

Villij and Catty

So good. Robbo at Villij and Catty. I keep hearing that Villij is going to be ploughed, who knows, one of my favorite spots though, not that I've been there but seen so many good vids.

Edit is by Tom Camby, I got bored and checked out his other vids, this digging one is good, all the motivation people need now that riding season is nearly over.

Feel like digging

Spotted this new blog from a link on the POWs site, have a look here. The woods look so good, trails look amazing as well, I'd love to be digging there right now I miss the fun times digging at the trails, winters going to be tough this year.

Took a walk up to the trails on the weekend just to have a look, everythings ok, well one tarps gone but apart from that its good. Was dry as well could have done some sweeping and riden, was tempting for sure. No news really things are moving so slowly, we're waiting for an environmental report before we can go any further.!/groups/192662447451871/

Need your help

There's not been much progress as far as the trails are concerned we still haven't submitted the planning application and we're waiting for an environmental impact report which needs to done first. Its looks like its going to be a long wait, don't think we're going to be doing any digging this year!

We're also working with the council to get the xc/fr/dh trails official in the woods near Moos, the planning application is in progress and we need to get emails to the council to show our support. So please send an email, it doesn't have to be an essay!

No news yet

Nothing really happened yet as far as getting a decision on the trails, these things always take longer than you think. Going to be at least a few more months before we get any decision.

Have only been up the trails a few times in the last months, took a few pics last week when I went up to check on the tarps before the storm came. Everything was all ok, place is looking pretty wild, could do with a sweep!

Massive tree branch that came down, no jumps harmed just fell on the run in. No more looking for wood for the bbq!

Check out that moss!


Been on a couple of trips to Hereford recently, the BMX track is awesome one of the best I've riden, plus there's also a park with some bowls, well worth a visit.

More bad news

Sad news went up the trails on Sunday to do some work for the council and discovered that one of the biggest beach trees has dropped a branch. Half the tree is gone! It was a huge branch 4ft thick easy and it took a whole oak tree with it! Now I know your thinking did it flatten half the trails...well no..haha but it made a right mess of the run in.

I suppose it could end up being a good thing, if the trails pull through we'll have a life time supply of logs!

Apart from that the trails are looking perfect under the tarps.

Help us save the trails, otherwise alot of toads are going to lose their homes, these guys love tarps!!/groups/192662447451871?ap=1

Well there hasn't been any post for a while, there isn't anything to post! No news really just been busy getting stuff done ready to submit planning.

Trails are still out of bounds and tarped up. Haven't riden anything trails for weeks now, not fun.

Saw this on the PSA blog, never seen a moto whip e.t before!

Things to do

The council have asked us to sort out a few things at the trails in preparation for submitting the planning application. So we need to go up on the weekend and do some stuff, there's some digging to do and also we have to do some surveying to make a detailed plan. So if your around come up and give us a hand.

EDIT - Going up on Sunday, wont be there Saturday!

Nothing to ride

No more news at the moment. Nearly 1500 facebook members now which is awesome, thanks to all the dudes who've been sending us advice about the planning etc.

Some rad pics from around the web...

We had a meeting with the council yesterday, I think I'll get in trouble if I put the details up on here! But basically there's a whole load of stuff to do to get the planning application submitted.

We were initially told it would be 3 months but it looks like it going to take longer than that don't think we'll be riding again this season.

The facebook group is going good, we've already got nearly 700 members, thanks to everyone for their support it will definitely help our cause. Will be setting up an online petition soon.

Nothing to do with the planning or anything... ages ago I sent of a dirt sample to Sweden as some dude needed to choose soil for djs and he got it analysed, here are the results, I'm afraid its in Swedish!

Particle size is the horizontal axis, and the % of the sample below that size is the vertical axis.

Results are
14% clay
49% silt
32% sand
5% gravel

I expected more clay, thought it was quite interesting tho, maybe I'm just sad!

Ok just received bad news I'm afraid, we are going to need planning, so from today no one is to ride or dig at either of the jump spots, otherwise they will be ploughed.

Edit - here's the situation, we cannot touch the jumps, that means building or riding until the planning permission has gone through. If the council become aware that anyone is doing things at the trails then they will be ploughed, simple, you have been warned. This applies to Clyne and Moos. The planning could take up to 3 months!

If the planning is not approved then it looks like the end of the trails, however we are hopeful that this won't happen. When I get details I will post them up here so people can email the council to show there support for the trails.

We had possibly the last ride tonight and it was awesome, everythings tarped up now, the first lip on main and small line have been destroyed to prevent people riding.

Wednesday, 8 June 2011

Last Thursday

About lunch time I got the news, had seen a post on the blog but didn't really believe it. Then I got the phone call, no riding or digging for up to 3 months, maybe never again if planning isn't approved.

So went up after work took some pics, did super fun trains round the 270, turn bared a few things, then it was time to tarp up and take down the first lips to stop people riding.

So thats it, no trails for the summer, great!

From Segments blog


Shouldn't have to be saying this as its basic trail etiquette... but if your going to ride then you have to water first, that means everyone! I can see that some of you were struggling with the bucket and cup method, there's 2 new watering cans now so no excuses.

Right that's the saltyness done. Had some sweet chilled sessions recently and some awesome bbqs. All the lines are running really smooth, 270 berm is sick now and 8th lip is so much better, still digging on the small line new feature is looking insane!


Moos on

dai, crazy dog has serious issues!

Recent stuff.

Not too much riding going on recently.. well before the gross weather we rode the trolol berms in and they were intense but recently.. weather has been totally gross, it looked like the end of the world at one point. Anyhow, we did get some more stuff done on the small line, built a pretty small berm to speed jump, this then goes into our new epic feature... its going to be pretty intense, oh yeah, one of the berms wasn't going to plan.. so we resurfaced it to make it steeper and it was awesome BUT THEN it rained and it collapsed, so that was just BRILL..

We changed the third trolol berm into a double pump due to lack of speed so that should make the hip after it a lot easier

Adam and Danny brought their new kicker up, looks far better than the other one

Dan on the newly resurfaced 270, rides much smoother now.

Planning application

Posting this up just in case there are locals that have not seen it yet. Most of you will know that there has been a planning application submitted to the council with regards to the development of the new tracks in Clyne, it would be great if those that use the woods could send an email in support. This can influence the decision, so please check out this link for the details.

The application does not include Moos, however it is a good idea to show the council how much support there is towards cycling in the park.

Boyd on the main line step up

Crucial BMX's new ad. Shot last month by Kung when the Digmore/Vinewood guys visited.

Boyds a super rad and friendly guy, might get salty tho if you don't do any digging!

Big dig

Last week has been one huge digging session, who knows how many barrows have been shifted but its alot. There's been a load of people helping out too, a year ago we had maybe 2 regular diggers, but recently we've regularly had groups of 4 or 5 sometimes more, and its shows, trails are looking better than ever.

Small line is coming on really quick, 2nd and 3rd berms are done, and a new lip went up today and half the landing piled up.

Some other random pics from the week...

Small line adjustments

270 dialed

Berm stuff.

Rich resurfaced the 270 berm because it was suffering after being abused by rain and frost in the winter.. and from life in general (it had lots of stones and holes and stuff...) .. but it looks sweet now! Oh and the middle of the berm is going to be dug out so its going to be much deeper.. and kind of like some kind of cradle bowl thing?? should be fun, does mean the water source is gone though.. but we get it from a dig hole now... Dans probably said this already... but its too late to change it now so your just going to have to accept the possibility of being told that twice.

Some more digging got done on the trolol berms,
well on the second one anyway.. we started
to shape it, should be pretty good when its done....

.. its going to go into a kind of hip.. roller sort of thing and then some hips and stuff,
should be cool.

Small Line

Been putting in a load of work on the smallest line, first jumps is now much shorter, fruit bowl landing is steeper and we've built two berms after it. Was a shame to see the line not getting much use but this will change now we've already been riding it more and its a really fun line.


new berms

Flow line is starting to ride in good now
