the beginner section

another start early end late day. With the beginner ‘low’ North Shore section lay out by Jeff a day earlier, Me and Alvin took 5mins to visualized and then jump straight to build the tall end of the beginner loop. It took us the whole morning to progress 5 metres, but we managed to get ...

here comes the power tools

With much of the wooden structure hand build with saw and hammer. We took a jigsaw and power drill to see what we can build out of it. Nik and I meet for the afternoon. Our task today involved doing up a small 2metres long section, connecting a new entry ramp to the straight roller ...

the ‘New Section’

Much as we are trying to make sure everyone get updated with info, we got to zip this until this New Stuff is almost ready. And yes we are there. We just received the new batch of woods for the stringers, and trail construction kicks in again officially today. We finished the Y-junction today, with ...

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.

adapting ideas to our climate

Nope we haven’t run out of ideas, but yes we are getting to the technical trail building bit, more carpentry, less mud and granite work. firstly, some older issues. With the dual log in place of turn 2 of snake slope, I guess that basic problem can be addressed with simple Appalachian Armoring. Always great ...

Yes a new section is carved out today. a few reason for this, to divert from the usual park walkway to preserve some of the flora available to create a better flow to the ride line to do so, a big bridge is done up. This bridge formerly known as MB200 in my posting is ...

the question of resting a trail

questions on ‘when will we see the trail re-open again?‘ I got to say, I really have no idea. We are adding extension to the trail, re-routing some part of the trail, re-addressing certain muddy section so there’s a better solution to the ever muddy pool, some new challenges, and of course MB200. 3 pallets ...
