I have spent a while now revamping the old dual track and making it into a single track trail that is roll able to half way then the 2nd half is made of progressively larger gaps.
initially, we dug the grass off the trail then i filled my van with sand from the quarry and gradually lined the trail. the trail always required pedaling but the mid section of small step down and step up just didn’t work and sucked any speed out at this point. so Myself and Llew worked on that and left old boy Paul and Mark to start on the landings for the gap jumps. Tom turned up and reshaped the learner dirt jump and made its landing wider too.
There’s still loads of work to do but a good trail shouldn’t be rushed.
