Advance notice of Trail Closures

31 October, 2014 at 19:04

Trail Closures

We’ll be closing two sections of trail whilst we carry out essential maintenance over the next two weeks. These sections will only be closed for the Sunday morning, reopening after we have completed the work.

For everyone’s safety, please follow the signed diversions – we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Trail building: Devil’s Staircase

22 October, 2014 at 13:00

Now that the Let Loose black option is ready for the FC inspection in a few weeks time, we took the opportunity to reshape the last corner at the bottom of the Devil’s Staircase. After scraping off and taping a diversion route, we started by driving in posts to support the crib wall around the outer edge of the corner.

Whilst Dave and Steve staked a log on the inside of the corner, new volunteers Izzy and Adam broke up the existing surface so we could shape a gentle bermed corner. Phil and I packed down the material building the berm up while Bertie, the Golden Retriever, plonked himself down in the way.

As the material is sandy and quite dry, the new surface will require a few weeks to settle and a good whackering before we can re-open the last part of the trail.


No Trail Building – 12th October 2014

7 October, 2014 at 13:00

Please note that there will be no trail building this weekend, as we’re holding our Annual General Meeting. Trail building will be back on as usual on the 19th October.

The AGM is open to all Chase Trails Members (only), and you’ll be able to get an idea of what we do as well as discuss the future of Chase Trails. We’ll also have a light lunch as well as some entertainment afterwards.

All members should have received an email a couple of weeks ago informing them about the AGM as well as the time/location – we’ll (hopefully!) be sending out a reminder email sometime in the next few days.
