 Not quite finished but 99.9% rideable, just a few moist bits we need to sort to get that last 0.1%

 All gravel in place, just the decking on one bridge to then be able to call the trail done Smile

 Oops forgot to add for weeks ago...the bridge is done so it's all complete. Keen to hear any constructive feedback you have. we'll let it settle for a bit and then have a good look over the trail and see what needs done for long term goodness.

 Not too bad going up but really no fun coming down. The trail has zero flow to it in my opinion.

 Skinny with tight turns with no real flow. It do sent link up with other tracks. It leads to nowhere. Odd. Down is better than up.

 Riding well. A couple of wet bits in the middle but we'll get to them soon. Waiting on signs for Bermageddon. This trail is designed as a transit trail to bullpen and Laing's road. Opens up a big chunk of hill for other trails
