The Place: Flappit Quarry, nr Oxenhope, West Yorkshire, map link – http://tinyurl.com/l4kwxx

The Mission: Build a pump track

Beer and BBQ will be provided.

Tools and stuff you can bring if you can (just turning up and offering elbow grease will be more than welcome though): boots, gloves, spades/shovels, picks/mattocks, rakes, tampers, buckets, watering cans and wheelbarrows.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SPREAD THE WORD. PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO ANYONE YOU THINK MAY BE INTERESTED 🙂

  1. Flappit has been shut to motorbikes for a few weeks now, not sure if they are still using it or not but I haven’t seen any about when I have been up that way.

    Is this going to be a permenant feature and open for people to use after this weekend?

  2. “Is this going to be a permenant feature”

    Hopefully.

    “and open for people to use after this weekend?”

    Yes.

  3. Can you indicate a suitable place for parking ? (as the first poster mentioned, the parking area at the front along the A629 is currently blocked off)

  4. Pump track? I take it it’s a track you can ride/gain speed without pedalling? Will it be a loop? Chainless races when it’s finished?

  5. if anyone else is planning on going up from the south manchester area, i’ll have space for one more person+bike in my car…
