Peak District MTB have done a lot of digging in 2019. Helping to maintain the bridleways of the Peak District, not just for fellow mountain bikers, but also to the benefit of horse riders, walkers and runners. In 2019, Peak District MTB’s trail maintenance work totalled approximately 308 volunteer man-hours. Many thanks to all the volunteers who gave up their time and helped to make this possible!
James lead the work in the Hope Valley and Ladybower areas, working in conjunction with Martyn, the Peak District National Park ranger, and more recently Severn Trent Water at our first Elmin Pits Farm dig day. Whilst Dan Noble continued our work at the Staffordshire Roaches with Jon of Staffordshire Wildlife Trust. Running these dig days year on year, has proven to not only help us to directly improve the trails, but also help our relationships with the landowners and managers, establishing mountain bikers as an important part of the outdoor community.
Our next two dig day dates are:
- Thursday 16th January, Ladybower.
- Sunday 9th February, Roaches (Staffordshire).
