The crew who showed up for Kiara Trail Day 1 PM Saturday July 7 (in order of appearance):
Yish, Joe, Simon, Pat, Stan, Mike, Soon, Shi Fun, Tony, Umar.
You guys are great. With all your help we were able to fix three problem sections of the Carnival loop with rock and fill, a total of 30 man hours of work. That’s 27 more hours than I have time for right now. Thanks a lot. A special mention to Yish and Stan for shouting the slab of 100 Plus. It never tasted so good as after hard labour like today.

Get your hands dirty in our TRAKS Kiara Trail Day!
For those of you who would like a chance to get your hands dirty while doing some good for your local trails, here’s your chance. Traks will be organizing a trail maintenance day at Bukit Kiara to give some much needed attention to the Carnival Loop so that it’s ready for the upcoming KL MTB Carnival in August.
Date: 1 PM Saturday July 7
Location: Taman Lembah Kiara
Trail: Carnival Loop
Objective: Buffing and preventive maintenance including rock armouring of problem areas.
Meet at Taman Lembah Kiara at 1 PM. Tools of choice are changkuls, rakes, parangs, scythes or pruning shears. Work gloves are good idea, especially for rock work. Bring enough water and snacks for a 3 hour session.
Come on out and lend a hand. You can get a good workout, learn something about taking care of the trails, pick up some pointers on how to shave some seconds off your Carnival lap times, and go home with a nice feeling of having accomplished something worthwhile … all for free. Hey, if we can get somebody to front the dough you might even get a free 100 plus or two.
