How many people help maintain the You Yangs ,Trav, how many people help to maintain You Yangs?
Do you frequently ride at Lysterfield, or just at You Yangs?
IMO, You Yangs is simply bigger and has more tracks to choose from.
Where Lysterfield have only one main loop to ride on.
And the other thing, we can't really compare the terrain of You Yangs to Lysterfield.
Lysterfield is quiet flat in most areas of the trail and and it doesn't take much rain to turn the soil into mud. So unless they can can close down part of the trail during winter, then I can't see how the tracks can recover from overused. No matter how well designed the trails are!!
A dedicated 4 people do the majority of all work in our spare time.I do not frequent Lysterfield alot for obvious reasons,if the trail net work was well kept I would.
You are also wrong about trail design,it does make a huge difference in winter.I don't need to debate anyone about which park is better or what ever,I'm not interested in that shit.What I would like to see is Lysterfield being brought up to the same standard as the You Yangs.
This can only begin to happen when PV(not trail mix) realize that they have a huge mess to rectify.As I've stated before I will be willing to help out if PV request.
