No biking today, but trail maintenance had to be done at the Halton Agreement Forest. More specifically a long boardwalk had to be constructed for a low lying area in Mahon Tract.
Six hours of my time was volunteered to help with the project, which was surprisingly completed on time due to the additional aid of other trail users (joggers and bikers) pitching in.
The weather was cold, wet, and miserable with a temperature high of 5 °C. It rained, it snowed, and there were periods of sleet. At the least the workout was good for the day!
Biggest obstacle of the day was moving all the lumber from the service road to the low lying trail section. It involved a gradual hill climb, which quickly became fatiguing. Even worse, though, was the second pile of lumber. It was located at three times the distance. In addition, the lumber had to carried as the wheelbarrow was returned early.
Nonetheless, thanks to the number of volunteers, the project was completed in a timely manner.
Despite the physical aches and pains, it was satisfying to see the completed boardwalk made of cedar. It was a good day to volunteer and help the Halton Region.
