Now that spring is here the tracks up on Signal Hill are starting to get a bit more use. Given that most of our tracks are built on clay or dirt, we've got to get the drainage nailed otherwise we end up with rutty bogs everywhere. Over the next few weeks we're going to concentrate drainage to make sure all our tracks are running sweetly for summer.
Josiah was keen to sort out a couple of puddles so we went up at the start of the week and installed a few drains. This one is just into the bush on the Mistress.
Good drainage means keeping the water on the inside of the track and out of the riding line. This is another thing that anyone can do really quickly - just scoop out any material that has come off the bank and started to silt up the inside of the corners.
