Forever After Trail Day Report
On April 5th, BC Bike Race hosted the NSMBA Trail Day on Forever After. Over 50 people attended and the after party was hosted at the Raven Neighbourhood Pub in Deep Cove with free beer & burgers for all the volunteers!
Much work was needed to repair the trail that was ridden hard all winter and saw thousands of tire tracks. Much of the old sections of trail was duff which absorbs moisture and becomes mud with user impact. After removing the organic, the trail bed was rebuilt using mineral dirt and proper drainage was implemented to ensure water now runs off the trail rather than along its course.
Thanks to trail day leaders and Academy grads for their leadership: Kevin Nesbitt, Rick Boles, Conor McGinn, Tomislav Ferenc, Tom Hudson, Alaia Alshariff and Carl Moriarty. The work is a signficant improvement and will ensure the trail is in top condition to host an international contingent of riders during BC Bike Race on June 29th.
Thank you to BCBR and the Raven for hosting. Thank you to Scott Robarts for taking some great pictures. Thank you to everyone who came out and contributed to the improvements made.
