    Thought this was a worth a share. We've recently broke ground on what will be our regions fist four cross track! I'm pretty stoked on it and can not wait until every things finished up.

    The track is going to be a bit mellow but still tones of fun. We have to make every thing rollable and friendly for new riders as this will be a public access, free to use any day park. Best yet its located right on main street so the park will be seen by nearly even one who comes to town. Hows that for putting mountain biking in the publics eye :thumb:



    Day 1: Rough cutting the upper portions of the tack...



    Day 2: Cut the lower sections and stated base shaping a few features…





    Day 3: Looking up the tack from near the bottom. Course is about 320 meters (1050 feet long)




    Day 4/5: Started cleaning up the sods from the scrapings and shaped some turns. Places and capped our culverts and made a few features.




    More stoke to follow. Upper bridges over some drain points go in today and fill to finish our berms should be dropped of tomorrow.

    Is that really in Wolfville?! On the mountain behind Acadia?! Haven't been there in a while, very cool that you're putting this in... looking forward to ride reports, and footage!

    It's in Kentville (Nova Scotia) actually on the east end of town just before you get to New Minas, "Burger Hill" if know the area well, the little sledding hill, were over on unused area on the side.

    Lumber arrived today for the two bridges over the ditches. Framed up one today, the other will go in tomorrow morning. Videos hopefully early next week. The rest of our soil hopefully will get shipped Monday or Tuesday.

    Update: Both bridges are in and the power pole speed bumps are set. We built a power pole retaining wall roll down/ drop toady but no pics of it yet. Might snag some tomorrow.





    Soil for the berms arrives in the morning :)
