It was a fair weather day for our Dig Day. A number of events on so we didn’t expect too many people to come out, so Lisa and I got stuck into refining some of the berms of Anti Disestablishment that after traffic have told us they needed some tweaking.

We had some great success extending and shaping the berms, we moved on to some of the berms on the flat on Frank’n’Furter. A great issue we had is that you can carry a heap of speed from the big berm and we needed to bank up the catcher berm to keep the speed up. Initially I had thought that these berms would be just for show.

Yay for diggers being able to leave great big mounds of dirt all over the place that we can come back and use as a quarry for a wheel barrow and a couple of shovels!

Just after we finished putting a bit more dirt on the culvert and a mini berm, we were about to call it a day, my arm was pretty sore, Jon and Sean turned up “just in time” for a helping hand.

We decided to go for a hoon first and try out the new sections then head up it to do some tidying up at the top tracks.

The boys had a lap while I got ready and hooned back down. I hurried a bit too much, as I came back without my helmet, so I went slowly. Jon had exacerbated a leg injury from too much riding (!!) so I did a hot lap with Sean and then as the boys went home I did a few more laps.

A great feeling to have the trails bedded in nicely.
