|Today was a bit of a special one becuase Parks Vic granted permission for us to take care of some pesky eroded parts of singletack that hugs the banks of the river through Westerfolds Park. After years of ad-hoc drainage we had the opportunity to not only fill the holes but to add a bit of spice and interest in the trail and to enhance the natural terrain feel of trails by including lumps and bumps - and bucking the current trend of sterile trail with groomed smooth track surfaces.
Fantastic weather and a tight group of volunteers who all worked so well together. It was pleasing to see new faces as well as the return of volunteers who had worked on trails previously. Great group, great fun, constant chatter and a few laughs as well.
Volunteers today were Gayle, Joyce, Tom, Jens, Michael, Bruce and George. A big thank you to all for putting the effort in on this AFL Grand Final weekend.
At the end of the work session, a bunch of tired bodies - except for Joyce who slipped on the riding gear and took off for several laps of Candlebark trails. Joyce scored 2nd place in open womens class the Pedal 4 Parkinsons 6 hour enduro held at Candlebark earlier this year. What a machine!
