Here are some videos from last Saturday’s “Lost Garden” trail work courtesy of camera man Bill Swan of Richmond ASR.
First up is a “walking in” approach of the entrance to the new Lost Garden. Note: Trail work was still in progress.
Next is a quick clip of JRPS Trails Manager Nathan Burrell operating the Ditch Witch to help place a large rock at what will be the exit of the trail feature. Having mechanized equipment and skilled operators is a huge asset to building sustainable trails in the city but it still doesn’t eliminate all of the manual labor. It still takes a sharp eye, experienced hands and a strong back to complete the sweet single track that we all love.
And finally we have a short clip of two local racers from the Luna Chix team trying their skills on the new feature. Way to go ladies!
A big thanks goes out again to all of you who came out and lent a hand to get this feature put in place and to Bill Swan for the video and finally to the city of Richmond for allowing us to play & build in it’s wonderful park.
Don’t forget the end of the year social and December club meeting will be held at Legends this Wednesday starting at 6pm. We hope to see you down there.
Until then please enjoy this light dusting of snow.
