Fixing holes in monsoon

Some of the todo got going over the 2 weeks the Rock N Roll bad turn   before and after   the China Bowl wall half done watery culvert  

trail inventory

after 2 full weeks of trail building at Ketam Mountain Bike Park, Joey and me took a stroll with Andrew, Angela and Wayne, riding what we build, and marking some of the future todo and prepare for our work report. 2 big sections that need some further work include that bad turn at ‘Rock N ...

The Grave drop complete

Another Saturday and to trail builders like us, more help coming. After one nice lap of warm up ride, the trail crew gathered at Grave Drop again. We split the work among the 15 volunteers, with William, Ellery, Joshua and Nik taking care of the entrance choke and rocks. Ken, Ling, Ming, Max and insect ...

Trail School – the making of cobra garden

We figured that playing with rocks and building trails is a fun thing and got invited our fellow trail builders and friends along. We took the opportunity to ride the Ketam Mountain Bike Park as a whole once. Testing out every single lines and re test it again and again for the fun of it. ...
