With a trail centre as busy as Cannock Chase is, it’s inevitable that things need to be fixed, repaired, patched, and so on, and our Sunday sessions aren’t nearly enough to do all the repairs and building we’d like to, so with that in mind we’re planning to run mid-week build days.
The Tackeroo camp site will be busy this weekend (20th / 21st April) as it’s the first Run and Ride “Tread or Shred” event. Offering a 10k off road running event (the “Tread” half), children’s XC mountain bike racing and an enduro (2 or 4 hour) mountain bike race (the “Shred” half), there’s something for all.
For full details check out their website.
The event will not be using any of our trails but there will be crossing points so please respect the marshals requests.
After positioning the concrete foundations, the two bridge spans were swung into position.
They will be meeting at 10am outside Swinnertons Cycle Centre (Birches Valley) and finish by 3 pm. You don’t have to stop that long – even a couple of hours would be gratefully appreciated.
These sessions will be held on a regular basis so if you can’t make this one, watch out for the next one.
