‘The Link’ Upgrades

8 August, 2012 at 12:00
Sorry for the lack of posts recently, we’ve been otherwise engaged riding at Sleepless and away on a busman’s holiday in South Wales – riding at Brechfa and Afan. Whilst we’ve been enjoying ourselves, the Forestry guys have been busy tidying the end of ‘The Link’ which drops you down to the level crossing ready to take on ‘The Monkey’.
The original surfacing had sunk which always resulted in a lake at the end of the section after wet weather. Bob the JCB driver dug a sizeable drainage channel and raised the level of the trail with new material.
The guys then built a fence and installed “V” posts to stop motor crossers tearing our trail to shreds – we don’t have too many problems with them on the Chase unlike some of the Welsh trail centres.
