Yes. That's right. There is no OMV trail fairy. So we need a couple of hours of your time if you are keen to help us maintain this great trail. If you have done this before, you'd know it is a great feeling to ride a trail you personally have had a hand in carving a berm or laying down rock armouring or trimming back plant growth.

I am creating this calendar entry on behalf of the WSMTB club. I am not personally hosting this event.

We will be doing some track maintenance work out there this Saturday, 6 Oct from 8.30am to lunch (BBQ by WSMTB). All welcome! If everyone did a day per year - then our MTB tracks around Sydney would be even better. Improvements and repairs just don't happen by magic. Let me know if you can come and help.
