Our first trail maintenance day for the year was held 12.2.22.
We had 12 volunteers come along to reshape the jumps and berms in the skills park.
Huge shout out to our TMC coordinator Mark Fleming and the following volunteers:
"Such a great bunch of people from all walks of life including a father and daughter team and two father son teams all pitching in to get the job done. Even the Golden Goat paid us a visit and got his hooves dirty.
We shifted, spread and compacted a full truck load of crushed rock supplied by Parks Victoria. We built up the little roller jumps on the green line, reshaped the lips of the jumps, cut out and filled in the braking bumps and built the berms back up on the blue line, and gave some love to the step up and doubles jumps on the black line.
The place is looking SWEEET but if you can, please let it rest for the weekend to give it a chance of surviving through Autumn.
Everyone who attended went away with a smile on their face and a LDTR drink bottle in hand, but most importantly a bucket load of trail karma. Thanks heaps team!"- Mark Fleming
The next trail maintenance day will be Sunday 20th March [that's the weekend after the Labour Day long weekend]. Hope we can see a few new and returning faces. Links to sign up for this day will be posted on our socials and on the events page soon.
Our next trail maintenance day will be sponsored by boutique brewery the Project Brewery Co. in Rowville. Braden and the crew at Project Brewing Co. have kindly donated a token for the first 20 people who sign up and attend the day. Each token is to the value of $18 and will entitle you to a Sample Paddle board. Check out all the Project Brewing Co. offer here [they are made keen MTB'ers and even have their own MTB merch at the brewery .... *take our money*!]
