we are finally done with Kent Ridge:

– a total of 4  new switch backs

– 2 x rock gardens

– 2 x dropoff/jump lips

– 7 x contour line trails

– 1 x bridge reroute

– 10 fallen trunks cleared

We hope that both XC and Super D ride will flow a lot better with these modifications.

The sizable turn out for the Trail Day on 2nd Oct 2010 is great!  Don, Arnold, Jina joined us in a 3 hour workout, digging a crowned switchback and 30metres  of contour trails for the XC exit.

here’s some photos from the week.
