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.

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!

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!
