Materials Delivered for Trail Surface Pilot

16-May-2008

Many riders like the sandy trails of Gnangara and Pinjar, but for younger riders on small-wheeled bikes the soft sand is virtually unrideable.

An early recommendation arising from the Management Plans for the areas is to import a more stable, compressible and durable soil for use in armouring trail surfaces - particularly for areas where novices and younger riders will ride.

DEC has agreed to the pilot, so this week approximately 200 cubic metres of Midland clay were delivered on site at Pinjar. A small test section of trail will be prepared with this material and the results - in terms of durability and rider satisfaction - will be monitored over the next few months.
