Trail Maintenance

Mountain bike trails do not maintain themselves; we rely on countless volunteer hours to maintain the local trails at Pidherny. A huge thank you to everyone that comes out to support these nights. 

We have tools you can use, offer instruction and guidance on where and how to maintain the trails, and it’s a great way to meet like-minded riders, too!  

  • No previous experience working on trails is required!
  • Build nights typically run for 2 hours
  • Each build night is led by an experienced trail builder(s) who will explain what to do and oversee everything
  • Every build night will begin with a safety talk and overview of the work planned
  • Everyone will meet at the designated meeting spot and walk to the trail together, led by the trail builder(s)
 
 
 
  • Comfortable clothes that are appropriate for the weather and you don’t mind getting covered in dirt.
  • Layers appropriate for the weather (jackets, extra gloves, hat/toque)
  • Supportive, close-toed shoes
 
  • A backpack with water, snacks, and waterproof outerwear in case the weather changes
  • Work/gardening gloves
  • Shovel, rake, mcleod, or pulaski, if you have one
  • Bug spray

If you want to ride the trails, make time to help maintain them and join our organized build nights. It can take a long time to build even a relatively small feature, but many hands—and the right resources— make light work. 

GALS N GEARS

Gals N Gears is an inclusive mountain biking community dedicated to smiling, laughing, and pedaling the local trail systems together. Our weekly mountain bike group rides are fun, non-competitive rides and a great way to meet other lady mountain bikers. Rides are usually around 1.5 hours in duration.

Rides are planned for beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders. This means, beginner groups may ride green/blue trails and intermediate/advanced groups may ride blue/black trails.
