Help Build The Pump Track: March 8th-10th

Between the 8th and 10th of March, VeloSolutions will be completing the key stage of building the pump track, laying the tarmac surface.

We are looking for a few extra bodies to help with this really labour intensive stage of the job.

For those of you who are keen to help (and are free), this is a chance to actually get stuck in and help build the track under the supervision of pump track-meisters VeloSolutions.

What’s planned: Lots of wheel-barrowing of tarmac, spreading it, smoothing it, laying it

When: Wednesday March 8th, Thursday March 9th and Friday March 10th, from 8-5pm

Where: Meet on site opposite Crags Sports Centre, Edinburgh, EH8 9RY

Let us know when you can help: We have a doodle poll you can fill in to let us know which days/times you can come along

Take Care of Your Trails Weekend Volunteering

Every year there is a Take Care of Your Trails weekend ran by Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland. Mountain biking trails all over the country are generally looked after by volunteers so this is a great chance to get involved and give something back.

What’s planned: Easing in the berms, clearing any litter from the opening day (31st March – the day before), some landscaping around the edges of the pump track and skills area and a chance to meet the team – and, importantly, have fun riding the pump track!

When: Saturday 1st April 10am-2pm

Where: Meet on site opposite Crags Sports Centre, Edinburgh, EH8 9RY
