This project is a perfect example of what's possible when different groups come together to achieve something. We'd like to give special thanks to the Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service (QPWS) team for their support of the project from the beginning, and especially for their partnership during the past two weeks. These guys consistently went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome for the project and the quality of the outcome is owed in no small part to their efforts.
Thanks must also go to the Friends of Parks grant program for providing the funding, Brisbane South MTB Club (BSMC) for administering the project and their contribution of supplies, Logan Community Trail Care Alliance (LCTA) for the contribution of their expertise into trail design and supervision of works, and to Trailworx for their outstanding craftsmanship to create such amazing pieces of world class, sustainable singletrack.
Finally, a huge thanks must go to all those riders who gave up their time to give back to the sport they love and get involved in the project. Pictures from the October 11 working bee are in the gallery below for your enjoyment.
Stay tuned for details of official opening festivities!
