On Wednesday April 7th, volunteers from the NSMBA assisted in coordinating a trail day for the High School Mountain Bike League. Staff from Metro Vancouver, students in the Cap U Outdoor Recreation Management Program, volunteers from the NSMBA trail team and of course the students, parents and teachers all made this day a great success. Work was completed on the Camp Brick/Richard Juryn, Hyannis and Blair Range courses. A parallel trail day was held on the Sunshine Coast by Ephinstone Secondary.
The weather was terrible, but we were able to complete most of the work without sinking too deeply in the mud!
We'd like to thank Wendy for wrangling up the high school crew, Heidi and the rest of the Metro Van staff for facilitating in Camp Brick/Richard Juryn, and Greig, Kris and Craig for bringing out the team from Cap U. Darryl and Randy from our trail team both volunteered extra time on a weekday afternoon to lead the crews at Hyannis. This day would not have been such a success without the dedicated efforts of these people.
We were all working too hard to take any pictures of all the students happily working away in the pouring rain and mud, but read on for more details of the improvements, including before and after photos.
If you want to see more work like this, make sure to join and donate to the NSMBA to show your support!
