Trail Maintenance

Trail maintenance secteurs and saw next to a rucksack.

The problem with all this warm wet weather is a tremendous growth of undergrowth in the woods. Ferns are generally not a problem, but nettles, white poplar saplings and brambles are encroaching on some of the best bits of singletrack and were making passage miserable and regularly drawing blood. Only one thing for it brave the mosquitos, horse flies and midges and get to clearing. The pay back to a couple of hours will be a return to flying again on the trails next time around.
