Over the weekend, over 50 hardy volunteers fronted up on Satuday and about 40 volunteers (some battle-worn from the day before and some new blood) returned on Sunday, braving the cold and frosty conditions to breathe new life into mountain biking at Mount Stromlo. Under the guidance of Australia’s best trail designer Glen Jacobs, the volunteers had completed approximately 6km of world class mountain bike trails by Sunday afternoon. The new trails take advantage of the gorgeous views over Canberra from the top of Mt Stromlo, and will guarantee Canberra’s return to the mountain biking capital of Australia.
The next working bee is scheduled for July 15 & 16, anyone interested is very welcome to attend and morning tea and lunch is provided. For more information please see the Stromlo Development section on the CORC (Canberra Off-Road Cyclists) website.
