Bedgebury Mountain Bike Development Project
Work is progressing very well with the new developments on the section after the Quarry. It is taking slightly longer than planned due to the technical nature of the works and dry weather. However, Rob Graham has done an excellent job and the new trail now looks like a slalom section of a ski route. It is surprising how much work is needed to build new berms just in the right place and at the correct height and angle, but the job has been done to a very high standard and will be a very exciting part of the red route. It is also very good to see the attention to detail and how they are taking good care of the environment during the works.
Although work is nearly complete we will not open this section yet as it needs rain on it to help it settle and avoid riders ripping up the stone. Please keep of this section and we will open it when it is safe to do so. The work on the next sections should be carried out quicker as they are not as technical, but again we will only open at the correct time.
Thank you for your patience. Mark Clixby. Recreation Manager
