Halfpipe

About 2 years ago we started digging small jumps at hoggs green. Nothing came of it – the pikies smashed them all up. When we were digging a couple of kids used to come down and ride around with us. One of these kids was called Gregory and he must have been about 7. Now it’s 2 years on and he has grown up a bit. He has his own BMX and his parents take him to the skatepark. They also bought him this for his back garden:

So we went to have a look at it on Saturday. We spent about and hour trying to dry it with a broom, mop, sponges, cloths and tissues but then it started raining, so we decided to just take it down.

The following people have been doing a good job at the trails:
The Shovel Load – Yak digs lots as always.
Wikstidian – Mark (and maybe Chris) have been digging more.
Dirt Lads – Wingham is looking totally nuts. Berms around landings rule.
Pretty Shady – Joe digs for bournemouth.
Derelict BMX – No updates on this site for a while which can only mean one thing – they are out digging again.
Rory – No pictures but you can trust him to be digging.
Paul Beechy – No website but he told me about 8 different sets of trails that he is building now.

Who said the trailscene was dead. I love mountain bikers.
