While we have know about the planned felling works in Lady Cannings for a while, we have only just received info on when this is going to be.
The trail will be closed from Monday 24th October for approximately a month
Once there work has been done, Bike Track will be in straight away to carry our reinstatement works on any part of the track that is impacted on by the felling (we expect a couple of crossings of the trail but have been promised that it will be kept to a minimum) Continue reading
After a great summers riding, it is time to start looking towards making sure things are looking in good shape moving into winter, so we are back into trail day season. we will be starting off up at Lady Cannings this Saturday the 8th at 10am
While it has weathered amazingly well, there are a few jobs that we would like to get done to keep its running prime. Nothing to taxing, just a little raking, and patching (barrowing and spade work) but the more people that turn up the more that we should be able to get done. Continue reading
With this seasons fashions starting off with an attractive golden orangey brown look, eventually letting the browns, blacks and greys have their moment in (out) of the sun. So we thought it was probably best that we re commence with our trail days to make sure that the trail keep running sweetly and as sustainably as possible.
We will post up full information on each of the trail days as they come around. But for now here are the dates for your diary….. Continue reading
You may well have seen some signs up on site at Lady Cannings about some forthcoming forestry works. So we thought we better fill you in with a little more information .
The felling works are expected to begin at the start of October and the duration will be a little weather dependant. We will post up again when we have precise details about what is going on. But for now here are the important bits that you need to know….. Continue reading
We will be heading up to Lady Cannings tomorrow evening (Monday 20th June) to carry out a little bit of routine maintenance, open up a couple of the full drains and cute back the overhanging branches.
Its all pretty straightforward, low key work, but all help is appreciated, we will be meeting in the car park at 6pm and will be up there for 2-3 hrs before going for a quick pint in the Norfolk Arms. We will be bringing tools, but if you have a spade or a wheelbarrow, it would be worth bringing one along. You may also want to stick some midge repellant in your bag too!
This also means that the trail will be closed from 6pm onwards tomorrow night
Monday 20th June – 6pm – Lady Cannings
This month for our trail day we will be teaming up with Sheffield Wildlife Trust to help with some of their work on Blacka.
We may also have a couple of impromptu evening trails sessions, which we will post up on the Facebook.
Full details below….
The next volunteer work day is on Saturday 4th June and we will be installing some of the new Finger and Waymarker posts and carrying out some maintenance work on the cross drains on the Bridleway going down to Strawberry Lee Lane car park.
We will bring gloves, tools and refreshments as usual but please remember to wear rough clothes, sturdy footwear and bring waterproofs, sun cream, lunch and water. I’ve haven’t spotted any midges yet but you might want to bring some repellent just in case.
I will be running the session so please can you meet me at in the usual place, Stony Ridge Car Park car park (SK 29581 80251) at 10am. Please ring me on 07964745451 if you arrive after 10am and need to find me.
Please not that we will not be providing lunch for this one. But please email us if you attend so we can update the incentive scheme, as a lot of people have been to quite a few days so far!
This months trail day returns to the field of dreams and white waves that is Bolehills, to carry out a bit of spring maintenance to the track. On top of the massive amount of work that went into the track last year, they have also been working away on renovating the pump track too. Continue reading
For this months trail days we will be doing things a little differently. Now that everywhere is drying out nicely, we can turn our attention to fine tuning! To make sure that the trails in Greno are running sweetly for Peaty’s Steel City DH, we will be holding a couple of evening trail sessions.
We will be up on the trail on April the 4th and 11th and will aim to start at 5.30pm and work for a couple of hours or until the light fades. We will meet in the car park, but will be easy to find on the trail for those who cannot get up there until later. We will work predominantly on the Steel City track, but may do a little on the other ones if time allows. Continue reading
This months trail day will be in Lady Cannings on Sunday the 6th of March. After the temporary closures of the trail because of the logging work and then due to the record levels of rain this winter, we are just about ready to re open the trail. All that is needed is to give the trail a bit of a tidy up and it will be ready to go. So on Sunday we will be after people to come along and move the logs off the trail, clear up the windblown debris and to make sure the trail corridor is still looking good and then it will be all sweet and ready to take riders again.
The trail will be formally checked on Monday, so please do not ride it until Monday evening. But beyond that enjoy getting reacquainted. Continue reading
This months trail day will be in Greno Woods on Saturday the 6th. While most of the trails are running pretty well at the moment, there are a few areas that could do with a little tlc to improve drainage etc. We are still waiting on the contractors who did the felling to tidy up the last bit of their work, but as it is too wet for machinery to go in there currently we are just going to have to wait. So there may well be another Greno Trail Day soon. As well as a couple of evening in the run up to the soon to be announced Peaty’s Steel City DH. Continue reading
