The Forestry Engineer’s inspection of “Pot of Gold” and the “Roller Coaster” had picked up a few things that needed tweaking before we could open these contractor built sections. So, with help from new faces Matt and Stuart (thanks guys), we loaded up and headed over to Deercote Valley.
After making the required changes, the closed sections were debrashed ready for a quick try. The only test pilot with a bike was Dave so donning his helmet, he pedalled off into the distance. Minutes later he came into sight grinning from ear to ear – I get the feeling he’d enjoyed his quick blast down the new trail.
Latest update: Diversion has now been removed – the Monkey is fully open.
After recently completing maintenance on ‘Deerskull’ and ‘Rainbow Valley’, the diversion has been reduced in length as shown by the purple line on this map.
The contractor repaired sections (in the dark green area on the map) are to be inspected by the FC engineer next week and opened shortly afterwards subject to a satisfactory inspection – watch this space …..
