What kind of work does it need @BowlRat?

It’s just been beat down and played on by kids. I’m bringing a shovel. Look forward seeing folks there.

Hopefully I can make it!

Update- No can do, watching the kids while the better half attends a community meeting. Have fun!

We wondered what happened to you. Yes, next time. Hoping to get out on Monday evenings, weather permitting.

I was expecting much worse of the park, from the previous comments. Lips were rounded off, berms and humps are shrunken, but I was expecting much worse - deep ruts, dug out, or washed out jumps and humps. It wasn’t as bad as I thought. @BowlRat did a nice job on a berm, but we’ll need some wet weather to get any work to stay in place. Maybe the rain tonight…

I did get some riding in after @BowlRat left. The pumptrack worked well, even though everything’s shrunken and fallen a bit. I hit the jump lines a few times. No crashes, but I get embarrassingly little air off my jumps. :slight_smile:
