DH Trail Maintenance (with complimentary arvo shuttles)

Meet at the Trailhead at 8am.

Saturday 4th August 2018

The plan is to start our maintenance work together to improve the berms at the start of the dh trail. Then, we will work our way down to other features. This will be a guided and coordinated group effort.

For safety – the DH trail will be closed whilst this maintenance is taking place. It will open again in the afternoon.

Bring:
– Your own food & drinks as we don’t want anyone passing out
– Digging tools such as spades, shovels and pickaxes
– Suitable clothing and footwear
Participation from anyone younger than 16yrs will need to be approved by legal guardian permission.

Central Coast Mountain Bike Tours are providing free afternoon shuttle service to anyone actively participating, as a thank you for all your hard work!
