Thanks to all of our builders and volunteers that came out this month to help keep the trails in prime condition for summer riding!
If you’re looking to attend a Trail Day, we have our last Work Wednesday this upcoming week on July 20th! Check out our Events Calendar for all upcoming events.
Trail Updates below:
Building culverts for the trail.
Filled trail bed, rocks and roots with mineral soil.
Drainage features were dug out and cleared.
The trail was raked clear of small rocks to improve the riding surface.
These berms had become eroded and were difficult to ride. New mineral soil was used to provide a more supportive corner and fill in rock armour that was pulling out.
The backside of the wooden cribbing had eroded to create significant steps. They were filled with mineral soil.
Trail Tread repairs
Reverse grades – to help mitigate erosion additional reverse grade reversals were built
Baden Powell – Expresso to Boundary
TAP Sponsor: Lululemon
Completed climbing corner. Removed organic material and replaced with mineral soil.
Community Trail Day
Cribbing on corner (Lower Skull) had failed. Replaced with rock retaining wall
Trail tread improvement
For the Kids
TAP Trail Day
Replenished trail surface with mineral soil, filled and covered roots to protect and provide a smoother riding experience in line with a green climb trail.
Youth Trail Stewards
Lifted trail to lower grade by adding rocks, topped with mineral soil. Renaturalized with ferns and blocked trail braid on right.
Lifted trail to protect the roots of nearby tree by adding rocks, topped with mineral soil.
Youth Trail Stewards
Removed rocks from a number of sections to smooth out trail and use rocks for other projects.
General trail tread maintenance. Replenishing eroded soil
TAP Day: Telus
Berm scaled, raised, angle steeper, large quantities of mineral soil added and tamped. Finished with moisture retaining moss on the berm top.
TAP Sponsor: Mosaic
Continued Work Wednesday drain work, added and tamped mineral soil so the water would flow into the new drainage ditch added to uphill left.
Installed reverse grade then enhanced drain. Added and tamped mineral soil to middle of trail.
Tap Sponsor: Traction on Demand
Fixed up the berm and run-in we enhanced on the last trail day, fixed the landing on the big roll/jump.
TAP Sponsor: Steed Cycles/Santa Cruz Bikes
Topping up the trail surface with mineral soil in areas that were showing wear or erosion.
Added armouring to areas that see heavy braking, before topping with mineral soil. The trail was also redefined in a section where riders were shortcutting a corner, with the shortcut being renaturalized and closed off to avoid further braiding in the area.
Drainage on riders right overflows onto the trail during major rain events. Create a rock retaining wall, infilled with smaller rocks and topped with dirt. Add cribbing below, filled with rock and topped with mineral dirt.
Thank you everyone!
