Action Needed: Current Trail Advocacy Campaigns sticky icon

This thread will attempt keep up to date on trail advocacy campaigns currently requiring action.

It's worth noting that behind there scenes there is pretty constant stream of lobbing by riders and their supporters. Many people do a lot of work on this, which inevitably leads to some government or local authority department putting out some plan or strategy or policy document for public comment.

This is where you come in: Without public support for such documents, all the work in the background to persuade authorities to get this far will have been for nothing!

The Oaks update for 06 Oct

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Area: 
The Oaks
Status: 
Green/Open

Rode up from the car park via Euroka and Bennett's Ridge to The Oaks and back down the sniggle (plus a detour via Pisgah Ridge FT). All very dry, a few trees down on Bennett's but would only be a problem going down on a flying night ride, sniggle is good all the way.

Do you have more information?

Gahnia TrailCare Volunteer Day - Sunday 8/10/17

Local riders needed!

Please register using this link

https://goo.gl/forms/QRHgXQ4CUiRqtS3M2

Our local Gahnia track is in much need of some attention and love. We need a handful of volunteers willing to move some rock and materials that have already been dropped into place along the track.

Due to the nature of this specific work we only need about 20 volunteers, and those who come should expect a fair amount of heavy lifting. A post dig BBQ and drinks will be provided to all volunteers who come help.

What to bring:

Yamma'd again

Missed last year's Back Yamma when it was cancelled due to flooding, but this year it was dry as a bone. The tracks had been at least partially restored, although what I'd remembered as a 50km loop was this year 2 x 25kms (or 2 x 28km actually). It's now a club race run by Orange MTBC and it was a pretty relaxed and relatively small scale affair.
