New section at the end of the Orange MTB Trail

New section at the end of the Orange MTB trail

 Last weekend saw another huge effort from the trail building team.They were working on the final stages of the Orange Mountain Bike Trail with the aim of making it technically more challenging, and safer at the same time. Over the weekend some 40 man days were clocked up using a variety of hand tools and wheel barrows.

The new tee-shirt

With sponsorship from a local clothing company the group has produced their own tee-shirt design. These are available to those who turn up to the monthly work weekends and their sale helps raise funds for much-needed tools and materials.

The trail improvements will be finished in time for a launch event on the 20th May this year. For more information about the group go to
