More trail improvements
There has been a lot of work going on at Kielder since the start of 2016, with lots of changes across all the trails. KTR volunteers, FC staff and contractors have been very busy, and here are some of the highlights:-
Osprey trail - Berms at the end of Rickies Run completely reconfigured, so not as steep and tight as before, and a lot more fun to ride!
Descent to Fam's Bridge, site lines improved and turns tidied up.
Lonesome Pine trail - The trail profile has been flattened out and whacked to make it easier to hold a line on the Purdom Plunge section.
Oliver's Oscar descent has been resurfaced completely, with bigger berms and several other hand built features.
Loose stones removed, and some turns reprofiled on Skydive (descent after Skyspace).
Ant's Path "unofficial" shortcut now opened as a Black section on a trial basis.
Deadwater trail - Sightlines improved on 3 Dog descent (the new inner loop).
Jimmy's Hill section all resurfaced and rock gardens made (a little) easier!
Superbowl loop resurfaced and drained with hard and easy descent options.
The large right then left berms on Twist and Shout reshaped and surfaced and now ride scary fast!
Shake, Rattle and Roll section cleaned up a little, but left in it's original state as it is such a blast.
Skills Loop - Undergoing a complete revamp by KTR volunteers, should reopen soon.
So, never a better time to come up and ride at Kielder, where the trails are in their best condition for years.
