Developing & improving mountain bike trails in the lower foothills of kunanyi/Mt Wellington
This event is run by City of Hobart Council and we encourage members and riders of the local MTB community to consider being part of this and future initiatives.
Participating in these events is not only a way to give back to the rider community in general. It is an an opportunity to learn and gain skills in how to build and maintain MTB trails. All this with the satisfaction of knowing you have made a contribution to improve the rider experience.
How to Get Involved
At all Trackcare events new volunteers are welcome, and if you can’t commit to the whole five hours – 10 am – 3 pm, you can volunteer for an hour or more during this time. You just need to sign in when you arrive and sign out when leaving!
Work on the Drops track kicks off! This is for more advanced mountain bikers who ride the track and will be made up of a much smaller, more focused group of Trackcare volunteers than normal.
Drops track will involve more technical and difficult work and is definitely for experienced Trackcarers only, and only suitable for those aged 12 years and over.
The work will include armouring sections and ensuring there is adequate drainage in areas that need it. We’ll be paying close attention to maintaining the character and alignment of the existing track, while reinforcing the surface so that it remains sustainable into the future and potential for widening and braiding is reduced.
The Drops crew will meet at the top of Drops track.
Where & When
Work will continue on the new Missing Link mountain bike track and start on the Drops track on 19 May. Meet half-way up the Rivulet Track (off Strickland Avenue), where the new track starts and at the start of the Drops track for the Drops crew.
