Trail maintenance on Barrie Knows Best (BKB) on Holmbury Hill

The MTB trails volunteers on the Hurtwood Estate (also known as the trail pixies) are going to be busy again soon, this time on April 15 2012.

They are planning more of their regular trail maintenance on Barrie Knows Best (BKB), one of the most popular and well-known trails in the area. It about the only trail that’s had input from Rowan Sorrell for a start and while it gets a lot of use, it doesn’t look after itself.

This time round, there’s a mini digger involved so the volunteers are taking the unusual step of closing the trail on Sunday 15 April while they get on with things. Something to bear in mind if you’re on Holmbury Hill that day and need your fix of cheese straws from the Peaslake Store; you’ll have to find an alternative route into the village.

Of course you might like to help out!

The more the merrier I’m guessing, so if you want to get involved, visit the Hurtwood Trails website for more information. You can also keep up to date with their activities by following them @hurtwoodtrails on Twitter.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
