How do folks, its been a while since Iv been on here but as me and a few buddies have built bikes again I thought Id see if theres any old faces I remember and post up what wev been doing at our trail.

I had it in my head there was a trail section but maybe that was something that was just spoken about before.

Not sure if this is the best section but heres a bit of a trail check that I will update if theres interest. Me and another 4/5 guys usually head up 3/4 times a week and build, its been too wet to ride much recently but since the start of May its changed a lot.

This is how things looked in May before work began again, having not been touched in 4 years

We did a lot of work getting the pump track back up to scratch again, reshaping rollers and making the berms bigger, will get some more photos.

The line of jumps was also looking pretty run down so most of the work has gone into this

We added a new jump and begun digging down between jumps. Also adding a sunken hip, and started working on a drop down dirt quarter

Thank you man, theyr great fun to ride and every week theres something new. Its taking a bit of time getting to used to being back on a bike again but its slowly coming back. And building is pretty relaxing it must be said

I definitely think part of it is having a couple mates who ride/skate or similar. that definitely makes it much easier to get back into it

Looks fun, and also looks like some are uphill? Maybe just the angle of the pics.

Jealous. I wish our trails weren't shut down and plowed.
