Appin XC track maintenance

When: 
Saturday, 21 January, 2012 - 08:00

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Ride Database Entry: 
Appin
Meeting Point: 

North end of Burke St, Appin. There's a small parking area here at the trail head.

Note that the map shows Market Street connecting Appin Rd to this location but that is actually a firetrail and will not work for drivers who should take King St (next block South) and enter from there.

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

Bring your own tools if possible. I'll try to ge some from WMBC as well. We'll probably start just by walking around the track and tidying up the drainage. Don't forget sunscreen and plenty of water.

This past long weekend saw an excellent turn out for the build crew. There were the usual regulars but also a healthy mix of fresh faces so things progressed quite quickly.

This piece of trail passes through some unforgiving countryside and has required massive amounts of digging, but it will all be worth it once it is ridden in. Expect to find a steep pinch or two, some fast downhill sections and the biggest berm on the trail to date.

With the next build day only 3 weeks away, we should have this section opened at the start of July.

Hydraulics Lab descent - new Council-constructed steps

These are the new steps built by Council on the last technical descent from Allambie approaching the Hydraulics Lab.

As you can see, they impinge into the trail with sharp protruding corners, so be aware of this hazard, especially when the boards are damp.

Yes, I wonder too about the quality of Council's risk assessment process. I'm guessing in this case there was none applied.
