Burning off the Christmas calories – Trail building

Did Santa bring all the bike bling you asked for?

To burn off the Christmas excesses, Bruce and I met up for a soggy building session on Tackeroo – yet another sump and drainage pipe combo. After cutting and taping a bypass, Bruce started digging the sump while I worked on a trench for the pipe.

Considering the inclement weather, there was a surprising number of riders out. Many voiced their approval of our recent trail maintenance efforts – it’s good to hear our work is appreciated.

After installing the pipe and back filling the trench, we finished the job off reshaping the berm. The soft ground needs settling time so we’ve left the bypass in place for a while
