Trail Day: Blacka Christmas Cracker (DE repair session 1)

After all the heavy rain over the past month, a lot of trails have taken a hammering. Non more so than Devils Elbow on Blacka.

There are fairly substantial plans we are coordinating with the Wildlife Trust and Sheffield RoW team. This will be the first of 2-3 days (2 and 3 will be in the new year)

We will post more up about the plans for the next couple of trail days in due course. But in brief, we will have a large amount of substrate which we will need to get into the right places in the trail as well as making the work as in keeping as possible with the characteristics of the trail. All work will be as sensitive as possible.

We will be reinstating and clearing all the drains to ensure it does not get any worse and improving what we can to make the damaged sections safer and easier to ride and walk through.

We will provide tools and as it’s Christmas, there will be mince pies and hopefully some warming drinks too!

Please come prepared for the work and the weather.

We will confirm which end we will be starting at later in the week.

Help always appreciated. This one will need decent numbers, but the next two will require a lot of help
