Welcome to our News Feed
Keeping you up todate with trail acitvity in the Forest of Dean.
pdates for those that don't know :) Bottom of Ski Run mods done and open, Top of Ski Run material has been dropped off for new tabletops off the start mound, Bottom of Mr Rooty mods done and open, Skills Area and Pump Track opening April 8th, Corkscrew mods nearly finished, Launchpad Extension CLOSED & ONGOING half surfaced and bottom mods done, WL tracks CLOSED & ONGOING as no new volunteers have come to help so slow progress, all in all Pretty good for a few guys and less than 3 months if I say so myself imagine what we could do if there were a FEW MORE OF US
We are holding a table sale during the Mini Downhill race at Pedalabikeaway this Sunday. You will find us located outside the cafe. This is a great opportunity for you to donate your bike bits and clothing. You may even find something new that you need.
All proceeds will go towards the DTV. So this is a great way to give something back to help develop and maintain the mtb trail here in the FoD. Please share and come and say hello this weekend.
Welcome to 2017
Over the next 12 Months the Dean Trail Volunteers hope (there is only 6 of us) to
Have a Skills Area + Pump Track Built
Build individual top sections from the Start Mound to
GBU (this will be the current top run but modified)
Corkscrew (already scratched in)
Ski Run (a line of tabletops)
Launchpad (half built already)
We will also hope to scratch new top sections to Mr Rooty & Endo
We are also looking to design something New to replace the now unused OC line between GBU and Endo
GBU should finally get the rollers to pump through the current pedally section before the road gap
We would love to develop some really challenging DH runs at the Worcester Lodge End of the valley but we need keen volunteer DH Riders to get it done
Freeminers will get a link into the 10 mile XC Enduro Route
And of course lots of general maintenance and anything else that we think of along the way.
For those that can't volunteer for whatever reason don't forget we have a donation box in Pedalabikeaway by the till and a Paypal button on our website, also you could donate any useable bike bits that we can sell on race days this is also a chance for you to come and ask any questions you may have about volunteering :) or just thank us for our hard graft and insane devotion :
What a great opportunity to give something back and support the efforts of the #DTV #TrailPixies here at FoDHQ. Pedalabikeaway are running a Twilight #Enduro fund raiser event race for us on the 9th September
