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

Rain at last

Massive digging session on the weekend so many helping out we ran out of spades, doesn't happen very often! Got a new lip shaped on the flow line, made a few changes to some lips and got a few things dialed.

Arrived at the trails on saturday to find someone had shaped this landing, looks like we got a mystery trail fairy!

Flow line berm dialed, next lip shaped.

Rich did some awesome work resurfacing this berm and the hip landing.

Left the covers off yesterday didn't expect to get this much rain! Hope nothings collapsed, trails needed it though should be good for a while now and can get some water saved up for summer.

So dry

Still no rain, forecast looks promising though. Trails are getting a bit rough now, there will be some dig days on the weekend to get stuff dialed again and finish off the new stuff we've been working on.

Made the lip slightly mellower on the long one and its now working good, landing and berm to dial soon, and the next lip to be shaped its the tarped one in the pic below.
