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!
