We'd love to hear from you
Whether your community is in need of trails, a bike park, a venue for racing or some general consultation - we've got the experience to make it happen.
The things we do - and a bit about them.
Skills Parks | Riding Clinics | Hiking Trails | Trail Maintenance | Mountain Bike Trails | Pump Tracks | Risk Management
For the past eight years, we’ve been developing all forms of skills parks. With nine parks currently located with Halifax Regional Municipality, we’re expanding throughout the Maritimes in order to bring this wonderful sport to more communities.
We will be offering riding clinics at various locations. For the summer of 2010, our current focus is on Sugarloaf Mountain Bike Park in Campbellton, New Brunswick as well as other camp sessions to be offered throughout the summer months.
Our clinics are aimed at helping riders hone their skills and gain confidence on their bikes. Lessons focus on core skills such as balance, braking, body position, cornering but above all having a great time on a bike! We maintain a student to instructor ratio of six to one ensuring each student gets the attention they deserve.
Dirtworks is more then just Bikes, we love hiking too and would be thrilled to be a part of your next project! Mountain Bike trails and parks may be our speciality but the skills, and know how needed to build a world class bike trail are the same ones needed to build a world class hiking trail.
Our team can help your community with trail maintenance issues. From choosing proper lines and implementing sustainable building practices, to training sessions for community members. We’d like to help insure your trails remain safe and present for years.
Water is the number one cause of trail damage. Keeping water off the trail and your users on, is the key to having a trail that will stand the test of time. Knowing this one can then implement subtle changes in trail layout - some almost invisible to the eye - work to guide water gently off the trail tread before it do any further damage.
The very thought of building trails excites us. Primarily Mountain Bike trails! Our team brings a wealth of expertise and experience. Taking a step back in our holistic and progressive approach - we’re building fun trails for you that will last.
Our trails are built under guidelines set in place by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) and the Whistler Trail Standards both are renowned world wide as leaders in trail design and construction.
Building a pump track is akin to sculpting with dirt. The riding experience created is and excellent training platform for riders of all levels. Learning valuable skills on a low-to-no consequence environment is key to building confidence on a bike.
Alas the facts of life dictate that there is an element of risk in every thing we do. From brushing our teeth in the morning to taking the bus to work, there is always a chance that things might not go just as planned.
One can never fully eliminate all risks but one can be prepared for them. Just like the air bags and seat belts in your car help keep you safe in the event of a accident a properly implemented risk management plan helps keep you safe on the trail.
