It's accessed off Choir Boy and finishes behind the cafe in the village. The trail was built by Nick Sutcliffe and his team, we're stoked with how it turned out and are super grateful for their commitment to the build.
The trail took two winter seasons to construct, building Wednesday Nights in winter months.
The goal was to build a trail that everyone could enjoy.
The build crew consisted of six solid volunteers who would dig rain/snow/cold.
It took six weeks just to clear the open section of vegetation before the crew could even start digging (definitely the hardest part of the whole build).
The veg was so thick that the guys nearly got stuck/lost a few times when trying to mark out the line.
Thanks to Gravity Canterbury, they donated money from their Wednesday night social races to help buy tools for the volunteers.
(rakes, picks, spades etc….)
The crew that built this trail are already thinking about the next one! We believe this trail will be a new favourite for many riders.
The trail is ideal for those who are confident tackling Loess Rider but looking for the next step before tackling Gung Ho.
As the trail is still fresh and bedding in, we will be opening it periodically and when conditions allow. Check it out next time you get a chance!
