Opening Of First Track At Project Rameka

Postby jonathan on Sat 31/Oct/09 4:43pm

A new track, called Great Expectations, will be opened at Project Rameka on Saturday the 21st of October. It is approximately 2.5 km long and provides a single track alternative to the steepest part of the Rameka Road. Come along on Saturday and help polish this great new track into shape, then enjoy a well earned BBQ lunch. The afternoon will consist of taking photos and testing the track.

Great Expectations
will be open to walkers, runners and bikers, and is suitable for riding up as well as down.

Please respect that this track is in a carbon sink. Park your car for the day, and enjoy recreating in Project Rameka under human-power.

After track building on Saturday morning, there will be a work party on Sunday to weed around the trees planted in August.

Everyone is welcome, and there are tools available. Hope to see you there - Jonathan and Bronnie.

Congratulations, Jonathan, and to all of you GBers who have put time & sweat into this track. I have great expectation of riding it very soon :)

Are you sure you've posted the opening date correctly...?
