Kalamunda Circuit News 28 May 2010

Hi Trail Builders

We have been lucky to have had the services of the work team from the Department of Corrective Services this week and what an awesome effort they put in.
I walked the section that they cleared on Wednesday morning and was really happy with the quality of their work but the distance they covered is what I was blown away with. It was a beautiful sunny morning and the smile on my face kept growing the further I walked, I kept thinking they must have finished by now but it kept going, maybe 2kilometres at a guess.
I have passed our thanks onto the work team for their great effort and we hope to get them back soon.

On another subject about good efforts I have tallied up the hours that have been worked on the Kalamunda Circuit and 56 volunteers have worked in excess of 700 hours.
There was a lot of work done by Perth Mountain Bike Club and The Western Australian Mountain Bike Association before any work happened on the ground.
At a cost of $40.00 per hour that’s $28,000 worth of effort from you the mountain bike community.
Our aim is to build the trail to the Dell by September. It will be a huge effort but with the help of the work crews and all you volunteers it can happen.

I hope to see you at the BBQ lunch on Saturday 1pm at the Calamunda Camel Farm, Paulls Valley Road.
Many thanks to Chris at the Camel farm for the use of his facilities and for providing garden salads for us.


Cheers

Murray

Hi Trail Builders

 

Trail Building 8am this Sunday the 25th of September.

We are meeting at the Dell. Look for the gravel driveway 100 metres west/towards Kalamunda from the Dell car park entrance. Look for the sign.

We will be working on a new section of trail called The Lancaster. We will be building jumps and or berms to get this section of trail ready to ride.

Don’t forget gloves, solid shoes, hat, water and food.
Please advise us on kctrailbuilder@iinet.net.au if you are coming along so we can plan the day’s work.

 

Next trail building day. Sunday the 9th of October.

 

IMBA-Australia trail maintenance workshops

The Western Australian Mountain Bike Association and The International Mountain Bike Association-Australia in conjunction with The Department of Environment and Conservation and The Department of Sport and Recreation are holding a Trail Maintenance Workshop.

Nick Bowman from IMBA Australia will be visiting WA in Oct/Nov. As part of his visit he will be conducting two workshops on trail maintenance on the Kalamunda Circuit.

The workshops will be on the 29th and 30th of October. They run all day (exact details to follow) and will include a couple of hours of theory, practical work on the trails and lunch. There will be no fee to attend the workshop.

If you are interested in attending it is essential that you reserve a spot by sending an email to kctrailbuilder@iinet.net.au

Please nominate your preferred day.

We urge you to come along to these informative workshops to build you trail building skills.

All trails need maintenance and the more people with the skills to maintain the trails we ride the better.

 

We hope to meet you on the trail.

 

Cheers

Hi Trail Builder.

Fantastic weather for trail building.
The trail fairies, well not quite fairies but the work crew from Karnet Prison have been busy again this week. Thanks to the Department of Corrective Services the work crew have put in another big effort with 3 days of trail clearing for us. I haven’t seen how far they have progressed this week but it is sure getting us closer to the Dell. Great effort.

Trail Building this Sunday the 8th of August.
A later start this week 9am.
Meet at the Quicke rd (gravel road) on the right hand side of Asher rd about 200 metres down from Mundaring Weir Road.
Please advise us if you will be coming along. If you plan to come later you can follow the trail but we will be a couple of Kilometres in to the bush.

You can contact us on kctrailbuilder@iinet.net.au or 0405 121 959

We look forward to meeting you on the trail.

Cheers

Murray
