Action Needed: Current Trail Advocacy Campaigns sticky icon

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

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!

Track closure

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

Whilst running part of the Manly Dam track between Water Reserve Rd, North Balgowlah and Manly Vale PS, tonight.
There is now fencing completely blocking both foot and bike traffic.
This has effectively closed the Manly Dam MTB loop?
Can someone shed light on this closure?

Bike selection advice.

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

Hi there Im a 172cm 75Kg 53 yr old keen to get back on the bike but a bit bewildered by the changes that have come to the gear in the 7 or so years Ive been out. I ride mostly local northern beaches esp. Narrabeen Manly dam but a few trips when time allows to the Oakes/Andersons or Orimbah. Im up for a good second hand medium, dual Suspension (carbon if I can afford it). So.... opinions 1x10 1x11 1x12??? 29vs 27.5 etc etc.
Cheers Pete.

Got close shaved on McCarrs by worlds dummest driver

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

So guy close shaves me today on McCarrs then gives me the finger to ensure i knew it was deliberate. So if it was in a Ford Ranger or Holden Ute probably hard to find the wanker but this genius does it in a Burgundy Citroen station wagon. I am thinking there are probably 1 of those on the Northern Beaches - if you know the car or driver please let me know here
