7-Mile Winter Working Bee’s

 

You won't need one of these but bring it if you've got one!

– Bring a rake, spade and the kids and help create some new cool trails!

Over the winter the Club will be conducting 5 working bee’s to build two new trails linking Bliss to Loop 7. The dates are all Sunday mornings, starting this weekend (26 May, 30 June, 28 July, 18 Aug and 29 Sept) at 9am and finishing around midday.

The proposal is to build Mulberry St, which starts halfway down Bliss (marked by pink flags) which then heads back towards Queenstown below Metolius and Loop7. It is a undulating intermediate trail about 700-800 metres in length. The second trail, yet to be named, starts higher on Bliss (marked by yellow flags) and drop down to Mulberry St. There are numerous other options for similar links should we have time.

These are relatively easy trails to construct and with a good number of people we should be able to hammer them out quite quickly. Kids, accompanied by adults, are more than welcome. A really good way for them to learn about and appreciate trail development! To access Mulberry St ride down Bliss until you see the pink flags them follow them in. You can ride the first 200 or so metres. If walking in, walk up Bliss until you see the Pink flags and then follow them. Riders using Bliss will be warned that people will be walking on it (they should really be helping out anyway!).

Don’t worry if you have no tools, or can’t carry them on the ride in, we have plenty on site for everyone. No chainsaws are needed. The trail alignment is in the bush and it’s alignment has already been cleared.

We will provide some sustenance courtesy of One Square Meal and Cookie Time.
