Ever wanted to get involved behind the scenes and maintain trails? Now you can! HPC are running 2 dig days to maintain some mountain bike trails around Dunkeld & Birnam. No experience necessary, working as a small team or in pairs you will help with vegetation removal/pruning and/or drainage improvements or trail sculpting (i.e. moving dirt/rocks). Bring along sturdy boots/shoes, thick gardening gloves and if you have a rake or pruning saw bring that too. You will get very grubby so please wear old clothes and appropriate for the weather on the day. Sun cream and/or midge spray may also be an advantage. We will supply water and some extra goodies to keep you fueled for the day but please do bring food with you. There will be an optional ride after setting off around 3.30pm/4pm. If you intend to come please click 'Going' on this event page, need to make sure we have enough cake for everyone! Meet at Progression Bikes, Dunkeld at 10am, transport may be provided to dig locations.
