Enjoy the mountain bike trails at Cannock Chase? Well, this is a quick peek at what's done on them each week.
Some of the work we've done recently on Follow the Dog and The Monkey Trail includes:
• Adding drainage pipes: Digging a trench in the berm, dropping the pipe in, digging a sump, and filling in the berm again.
• Installing a new boardwalk: Simple enough - 6 posts into the ground to support each section of boardwalk, two supporting beams, and finally the planks on top of the boardwalk, plus a whole bunch of bolts and screws to hold it together.
• General maintenance: Filling in some problematic holes, resurfacing some sections of the trail, repairing some of the rocky bits, and so on.
Want to help out? If you can spare a few hours of your time, come along to Swinnerton Cycles at Birches Valley on Sunday morning at 10am. Or, if you want, you're welcome to stop and help out for a bit mid-ride if you see us out working. Tools are provided, just bring yourself, some suitable footwear, and food/drink for the day.
