It's finally open - Trail Building

The Forestry Engineer's inspection of "Pot of Gold" and the "Roller Coaster" had picked up a few things that needed tweaking before we could open these contractor built sections. So, with help from new faces Matt and Stuart (thanks guys), we loaded up and headed over to Deercote Valley.

After making the required changes, the closed sections were debrashed ready for a quick try. The only test pilot with a bike was Dave so donning his helmet, he pedalled off into the distance. Minutes later he came into sight grinning from ear to ear - I get the feeling he'd enjoyed his quick blast down the new trail.

The surface of the trail is still new and soft so please take it easy - remember "skids are for kids" as they say.

  1. tried the new sections last night, a lot of people already gone off towards the end of pot of gold, couple of right hander's cold do with small berms to keep the trails flow and in some cases stop poeple hugging trees... The rollercoster is going to take some getting used to before you can hit it a full speed (line choice going going to be key I think ;-) ) good effort guys, just cant wait for it to bed in a little :-D ps, a black option of a north shore drop option on the rollercoaster's down bank to right hand berm would be epic ;-)
