Update: date changed to Sunday 7 April
Last month we were over in Ashton Court, this month it’s the turn of its muddier, rootier little brother. If you’ve ridden in 50 Acre Wood lately you’ll know that it’s holding up surprisingly well, thanks largely to the sterling efforts of the volunteers.
But there’s one truly awful section left, over by the top layby on Weir Lane, and that’s where we’ll be focusing our efforts on Sunday 7 April. The plan is to armour up a solid line and possibly build some sort of optional technical climb for people to practice their wheel lifts and power-gurns.
We’ll be meeting at the start of the trail (by the squeeze stile) at the slightly more civilised time of 11.00 am but you’re welcome to turn up later. The clocks going forward means we’ll have an extra hour of daylight to play with, so we should be out until around 4.00 pm. As ever, we’ll supply the tools and the woods will supply the stone. Just wear some clothes you don’t mind getting muddy, some sturdy footwear and bring some food and water if you’re planning to stay all day.
Also after being resurfaced the car park at Abbots Pool is open again. Please park here or on Weir Lane, to avoid annoying the residents near the entrance of the rugby club.
