Kitbag Hill Continued (Trail building Monday 18th January)

18 January, 2010 at 22:00

Martin and I were again joined by a group of lads from the RAF and fortunately for us the weather was considerably warmer that the last time we worked on this section.

We headed off to continue with the work on section “H”, we decided to split the lads into two teams one team was given the task of bench cutting a new piece of trail which spanned between two fire roads. The other team were given the task of armouring a section that we had bench cut on one of our regular Sunday builds a few weeks ago.

The day ended with a little challenge for each of the lads to get a wheel barrow full of surfacing to Martin who was working on corner further up the trail. This was a very difficult push; all were encouraged to have a go especially as they got the sergeant to go first.

The work went very well a big thank you to the RAF for attending and by the end of the day we had a new trail cut which is ready to be surfaced and another part of the section is now surfaced. If you come across a new section of trail please resist the temptation to ride it as you will destroy all of the hard work that is being put into it…

Don’t forget we meet 10am every Sunday outside Swinnertons, All Welcome
