DIY Wotz on Guide

By Kramer - 26 July 2007 9

So it’s Thursday once again, so what’s going down in our fair city this weekend?

My personal pick will be to get out to Canberra’s biggest fun park which is Stromlo Forest Park, and build some more mountain bike trails with CORC. Trail building will be happening Saturday and Sunday. So if you’re keen to swing a shovel, or fire rake (the trail builder’s tool of choice), then check out the CORC website.

What’s Your opinion?
