Next month will be a busy time at Project Rameka. Come and join us if you can spare the time!
Test and Tickle
On Sunday 13 November we will be holding a ‘Test and Tickle Up’ work party on Great Expectations. The goal is to identify the spots that are currently unrideable for Grade 2 riders and fix them.
So if you are a Grade 2 rider, please come along and test the track for us, then help us make it work for you!
Meet at the top of Great Expectations, at 10am on Sunday.
We will have some tools, and some food for a picnic lunch.
Where the Hell are We?
During the week of the 14-18th November, Marie and Bronnie will be working with US interns Jane and Charlotte to paint new signs – one for every track intersection in the project. These will be popping up to help visitors know where they are heading.
To the Scrub Face
On Wednesday afternoon, 16th November, Jonathan and Martin will be leading a work party to uncover more of the historic Rameka Track. We will meet at the Totara Carpark at 1pm, and head up the escarpment to the Scrub Face. It’s a fair walk in now, and the views are impressive.
We are also on the lookout for a couple of Trail Pixies to give some TLC to The Odyssey. It shouldn’t take much – just a bit of vege trimming, and perhaps removing the odd rut here and there. If you are able to spare the time, please contact Jonathan (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Martin at the Quiet Revolution Cycle Shop.
Suck it Up
A heartfelt salute to all those that planted trees last August (and previous years). They are growing incredibly well, and sucking up carbon dioxide in the process. Just a reminder that Good S@#T Happens when good people make it happen.
P.S. Thanks to all the people who have been beavering away on the tracks over the last few months!
