We just hit 50 mm of rain since yesterday so riding is out for the meantime. It's anyone's guess how long this will last but I'll be keeping an eye on conditions and update then. If anyone has a look feel free to post up.

Glenrock Trailwork - Seismick - Saturday 15th of September

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post
When: 
Saturday, 15 September, 2018 - 09:30

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Ride Database Entry: 
Glenrock State Conservation Area
Meeting Point: 

On-site - Seismick Trail

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

The next Glenrock Trailwork day will be held on Saturday 15th of September.

We will be working in the area of Seismick Trail.
The work will be rebuilding the whole trail and in particular reshaping the berms. They will need to be hand packed with shovel and McLeod, so the more hands - the better.
The NPWS Field Officers have been on-site moving material to build this and we should be able to achieve a great result with substantially bigger berms – Oh yeah!
The NPWS Ranger, Kate will be providing a BBQ lunch for all volunteers to keep the energy levels up.
