Stoked Cntre City New World have come to the party for the treats and the weather forecast is looking pretty sweet for trail gravelling tomorrow. Kick off at 10am, see you there!!!

Right, the action plan for Sunday...

A few of us are going to get there at 9:30am and Hayden is going to take the first load of wheelbarrows up the hill.  He'll then keep shuttling people / gear through to around 1pm (so don't worry if you can't make it at 10am).  Hayden will be able to take you 2/3 the way up the hill then you'll have to walk the last bit.

If you'd prefer to walk all the way, then from the bottom of the track go up the road about 300m then turn left onto the track we used for shingling.  Follow the red and white tapes tied to the trees.   These will take you straight up the ridge - a 20min walk to the top if you're cranking. 

You can bike up a fair bit of the way, but this may be weather dependent. 

We'll have the tractor there to load barrows so there's no need for shovels.  There will be 6 or 7 spare wheelbarrows, so don't worry if you don't have one - we'll hook you up.  We will also swap people around to give them a rest (maybe).  

Gareth has organized some hot food and we'll have hot drinks too.  Please dress warmly, as it's pretty exposed up on the ridge where we're working.  Forecast is possibly for a little rain in the morning then clear for the rest of the day.
