3rd Rider wanted for 7hr at Glenrock

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hey all,

We're chasing a 3rd rider for the RockyTrail 7hr at Glenrock in a couple of weeks.

We'll be looking to go pretty quick and are looking for someone at a similar level, but also just there for fun and to have a good race. If you're keen to have a crack, let me know.

If we can't find anyone, we'll probably just stick with pairs and see how we go.

Glenrcok Draft POM process update

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Just a quick update for those of you who took the time to put in a submission to the draft Glenrock POM.

Speaking to NPWS there were over 180 submissions to the proposal, with the vast majority being pro mtb access.

From a mtb stand point, the submissions were positive with the main concern raised being access to the southern area of the park. What NPWS do with this, I don't know, but I am quietly confident that the southern boundary, while not being removed, may be amended. Time will tell.

Glenrock Plan is Up

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

As discussed in NPWS - Draft Plan of Management for Glenrock the POM was coming. It's now out and can be found here:

http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/parkmanagement...

There is an online form and you can complete a positive comment in seconds. Even something like, "I enjoy MTB riding and welcome legal single track and firetrail network in the park. I would be much more likely to visit Glenrock with these facilities in place." will do (although please don't copy that word for word as they weed out duplicates). So no more excuses - everyone should be commenting on this!

This is very important even for those living quiet a distance from Glenrock, as if passed in it's current form this plan will legalise single track in the park. If this happens we should all be using as an example of what can be done in other NPWS areas, and the benefit for Sydney riders should be pretty obvious in that light.

Huge thanks to Sammydog and co. for their work on this. They've done their bit, now it's time for us to do ours! Take a few seconds and use the comment form here:

NPWS - Draft Plan of Management for Glenrock

Its been a long time since I posted here on the Glenrock POM (not sure I have), or really had anything to post. I do now so I have created this thread as a spot for people to ask questions about, or discuss news as it arrives.

The big news is that the Draft POM is being launched on Monday 16th Feb. I will be at the launch and speaking to the politicians on offer, but basically the chance is just about here for everyone to have their say.

Ed: Update 22-Feb: The plan is now out for comment. It can be downloaded here (this page also includes details of how to comment):

http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/parkmanagement...

I would encourage everyone to submit a comment. It doesn't have to be wordy, even something simple as, "Please adopt the network of MTB trails as I love the sport and this will encourage me to visit the park." will do (although please don't copy that word for word - they weed out duplicates).
