Hello. Volunteers Needed! 17-18 April.

Coffee, food through the day, a thank you dinner and great riding to watch are some of the perks of helping out.

Team Mount Beauty would love help with the following:

A small but competitive group of Team Mount Beauty juniors headed to the Mystic MTB Park in Bright this morning for Round 6 of the Alpine Junior MTB Race Series. All kids raced well on greasy trails in a Gravity Enduro format. Well done to Mia and Remi for finishing on the podium.
Special shout out to Tom Doc for showing great sportsmanship and accepting the result when an apparent timing glitch meant he missed out on a podium finish.

**TRAIL UPDATE:**

TLDR - please read, it’s important, we know it’s long, 3min read.

This is a two part update. Please read both posts. The second post (coming soon…) will highlight some specific areas of trail-work with explanations of the work and how it meets the requirements of the Trailscapes audit and the DELWP Licence Agreement.

You may remember that the audit was performed by an independent company appointed by DELWP. Their job was to assess our trail network and provide recommendations on how to improve/maintain trail sustainability, reduce risk, standardise trail grading and limit expansion of the trail network. The DELWP licence agreement defines how we must manage the park as custodians of public land and ties in closely with the findings of the audit.

The trails team and sub-committee has been at it for many months now and produced some amazing results. It has been seriously hard work for our trail workers and club volunteers who have come along for working bees. We have received a lot of feedback. The vast majority has been very positive, and we love positive feedback! Please keep it coming in. However recently we have also received some constructive negative feedback. This feedback is important - it’s how we learn and how we maintain the important discussion over trail maintenance. We won’t all agree all of the time, but we should always have respectful and open discussion.

The recent feedback has pointed out that, for a few club members, some of the recent work has been too extensive. We get it and we are listening. The balance can sometimes be hard to find. Even the committee doesn’t always agree, but we are having ongoing discussion and in the end we have to make decisions.

We have also recently received a very respectful concern from one person about trail photos they had seen on Facebook. This related to notching of trees and cutting rocks. Please rest assured that we have not approved the notching/damaging of any living trees and we would never promote this type of work. There has been approved notching of a dead tree and a stump, which was done after studying the trail and in line with the audit.

We can also confirm that there has been a very small amount of permanent rockwork on Dragon’s Tale. This is in a spot which has claimed injuries and bike damage. It was done in consultation with the original trail builders and we believe it satisfies the requirements of the audit and the DELWP licence agreement. If you haven’t ridden it or walked it yourself, we would encourage you to do so. If you have concerns or questions about this or any work, we’d encourage you to contact the committee. We will gladly reply to your concerns. Or better still, come to one of our meetings for a chat and contribute to the discussion.

Please rest assured there is no plan to change the nature of Mount Beauty’s unique trails. We are not trying to create a flow park. We are repairing eroded trails, improving drainage and trying to prevent further damage. This will make our trails more environmentally sustainable, reduce the workload on volunteers and protect our trails for future generations.

In doing all this work, we are also doing our very best to meet the wishes and expectations of our club members, whilst at the same time meeting the requirements of the audit and the DELWP licence agreement. If it sounds hard to juggle, it is! We won’t always get it right and we rely on our members and the broader riding community to provide feedback on this. Where possible we will act on this feedback. But please don’t dismantle new work you don’t agree with, by moving any logs, rocks etc that have been strategically placed. If you are not sure if the work is deliberate, please check with the trail crew before changing anything.

Please also remember we are volunteers, we all have families and jobs, we are members of your community, we are passionate about our trail network and we are working hard for you and the club we all love.

In the meantime, get out and enjoy the trails and if you’d like to share your experience, or your opinion, we’d love to hear from you. Please also consider giving up a few hours at our next working bee or at the Enduro.**TRAIL UPDATE:**
