  • Hi guys and girls,

    Went riding on the Chi Ma Wan trails and its been nicely maintained in the last few days! I hear there is an up-coming event there this or next weekend?

    Has the same maintenance occurred on the Tai Mo Shan trails? Last time I rode there, it was well and truly over-grown!

    Im always keen to get out and help where I can when it fits in with my schedule of course!

    Happy riding

  • I know what you mean, a month or so ago just about every trail around Tai Mo Shan was really jungle like after an excessively wet summer. It's largely cut back now and a pleasure to ride although the Tai Lam Reservoir trail could still do with another cut.

    Trail maintenance days and workshops are coming up but our volunteers generally work on building and maintaining the trail whilst the government workers do the day to day trimming.

  • On a slightly different note, are there any plans to build some jumps on the trails? A few nicely placed tabletops would be great! Like I said, always happy to come help build!

  • 23 & 24 November we will be starting work on a brand new DH trail. I would be suprised if IMBA didnt include some gnarly features in the design.

    Volunteers are needed as always and appreicate your help!

    Details are up on the homepage, any queries let me know.

    Cheers
