Yep it’s that time again. This Saturday is the third Saturday of the month and that means Manly Dam Volunteer trail maintenance day.
We’ll be meeting just off the Wakehurst Parkway at the Curl Curl Creek fire trail at 8am this Saturday to continue our work on the single track. Please let me know if you are coming along so we can ensure we have enough hand tools for everyone.

That's how much material was used last month to remediate a badly eroded section of the Manly Dam trail (8 tonnes of crushed sandstone and another 2 tonnes of flagging).
A small group of volunteers joined Trailcare for the first volunteer maintenance day at Manly Dam in more than 2yrs
The 3rd Saturday of each month is the new recurring date for volunteer maintenance at the Dam
Northern Beaches council and the rangers at the dam are supporting our sport by supplying material and hand tools for each of these days

Ourimbah XC maintenance

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi Folks,
Feel like some cross training? Feel the urge to give back to the trails we love to ride? This Sunday there is a maintenance day planned to tackle the critical issues, the entry to the drop off and the top of roller coaster. Yes there are more issues to deal with and they are on the agenda. More hands means more work will get done.

Sunday 8am onward, till as long as you like!

Bring any of the following, wheelbarrow, shovel, steel rake, your bike, water, gloves and some elbow grease.

Cheers
Rob

Just a bit of an update on Upper Jumping the Gun so everyone knows what is going on in the park.

Trail works have now moved to the Jumping the Gun to start making the trail usable after rain. As you would all know, sections of the trail hold significant water and stay wet for extended periods.

The sort of heavy machinery

A few trail design scenarios were put to the NPWS on Thursday and pegged out on Friday. Today the machinery rolled in to begin works. Keep an eye out on this trail as the NPWS will be working all weekend and into next week.

Next GTA build day location.

After this weekend successful build day we are now at a point where we can look to move to a new section of trail to work on. At bit of a discussion was had at the end of saturdays works to see where we go from here and a couple of trail locations were suggested as being the potential focus for the upcoming build days.

- Suess Land (ruled out as the NPWS will likely want to supervise this given the prevalence of threatened flora adjacent to the trail corridor).
- Lower Kenny (where the trail splits into either the steep chute or the alternate line)

Work on the step up - The B-Line ramp is now complete thanks to the importation of soil to fill in the gaping holes between the rock ramp that had been created at the last build day. A little bit of tidying up was also done to the A-Line leaving this section complete.
