Martha Creek Makeover - Trail Update

Oct 1, 2015
by Matt Yaki  
The Martha Creek Makeover is a trail maintenance and fundraising project for the epic Martha Creek Trail in Revelstoke BC. For background on this story you can check out this previous Pinkbike article.

Martha Creek Makeover

Organized by Wandering Wheels and supported by Rec. Sites and Trails BC and the Revelstoke Cycling Association, the Martha Creek Makeover has raised money and put hundreds of hours of work into the Martha Creek Trail! Bridges are being rebuilt, drainage and erosion problems are being addressed, there is lots of rock armouring and brushing happening, even some new jumps and berms are being built! Have a look through some of our work photos and see below for your chance to visit Revelstoke and shred summer or winter in support of the Martha Creek Makeover!

Many of the bridges and boardwalks on the trail were severely damaged from snow loads and high water.

Huge thanks to Paul at Glacier Helicopters.

 I haven't ridden that trail in a long, long time. Use to ride it a ton in mid-90s. Back then we use to pedal out from town, ride to the top, rip down and pedal back. That was a serious ride. Of course one guy had one-up everyone. Road from Revy to Keystone and back, on a Super 8 with monster Ts. Greatest endurance feat I have ever heard of.
