Maintenance Morning 11th March 2012

More work was carried out on BKB (Barry Knows Best) on Holmbury Hill today. A few sections of trail were concentrated on, one where “trail creep” was occurring. Trail creep is where the trail has widened due to riders either looking to avoid roots or puddles for instance. This particular section was modified and proven when rider after rider followed the new line the builders had set out for them.

The next small section was replaced with a new trail. This improved the durability of the trail and added a small “swoop” into the trail.

A photographer was present today to take photos which will be published for the Friends of the Hurtwood newsletter along with an article on Hurtwood Trails’ current and future activities.

Many thanks to the volunteers who came along today.
