10th Jan 2016 trail trimming

If anybody's wondering - yes, we will be doing some trail tune-ups this month.

There's some new bits formed over the last month or so that still need a bit of polishing (bring digging implements).
There's still some ruts and ridges from last winter's mud that threaten to flick you off at an inopportune moment, so could be smoothed out to facilitate rapid summer riding (bring digging implements).
And of course at this time of year there's no shortage of trail-side new growth that needs to get the "get out of my face" message (bring secateurs, loppers, hedge clippers or other vegetation cutting implements).

Possibly most important of all - in the areas where trail-sides are grass (with a bit of gorse and blackberry thrown in for extra special unpleasantness), we need to see a weed-eater in action. I have a sprayer to follow which will make the clearance last longer, but the initial clearance is required first. If anybody has the equipment and inclination, we'll gladly provide any guidance that may be required - whether at the official time, or at some more convenient time, just say the word and we'll organise something.

Or any other favourite project that you have in mind....

See you at the entrance near the cell phone tower at 9am. Txt or phone 027 809 9279 if want to come later or can't find us.

Al.
