Seriously inexperience on log work we are. can’t seems to secure the pieces together to get a stiff structure with those big logs. After ...

the banked roller

With the first ramp built leading to nowhere since day one, we decided to give this best line the fastest and most technical bridge we ever built. A banked roller that twist and bank 3 times in a space of 4metres. Liyana and Alvin got things started with the nailing while I do most of ...

waking up just as september ends

Alright, is about 2 months since we’ve done real work on the trail. The past 2months were spent waiting for the rain and sediment to weather the trail, giving a good foundation before the heavy riding expected.

a typical trail building day

Finally injury caught up with me (non trail or bike related), While Alvin and Liyana work the day with the 3 workers, completing and bench cutting sections of the uphill section of the fern hill, I took the time off to test out our Virtual Maps sponsored GPS tracking units so to mark the trails. ...
