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!

Do you have more information?

Mid Pack Warrior Report - Port to Port 2017

After recent trips to Derby and The Mont plus the football season I was happily putting my competitive riding, (I use this term in it’s loosest sense with a very small ‘c’) to bed and settling down into my winter training schedule of a couple of half hearted laps round the dam when I got an email from NOBMOB telling me I’d won an entry to the Port To Port. To be honest I’m not sure I replied with the level of excitement it deserved.

So belated thanks to NOBMOB for running the competition.

STAGE 1
Nelsons Bay – 35km

Port to Port done and dusted

For anyone who thought about P2P but did not do it - here is a first hand account of it.

On paper it is four days with no day being particularly long so it looks like pretty simple but it was a bit harder than what I thought. All locations are quite scenic and offer more than mountain biking for the support crew to enjoy. Anyone who made the mistake of inviting a spouse to e.g Scott 24hr may have a little convincing to do but it is an enjoyable event for support crew as well as riders.

The Oaks update for 22 May

Rode from the NPWS carpark at Glenbrook up to the start of the single track via Euroka Campground / Bennetts Ridge Firetrail / Nepean Lookout. Firetrails obviously fine and dry - the single track section had a couple of puddles of standing water which were unavoidable but mostly fine.

Do you have more information?

****This will be up on Saturday 20th as well****

Hornsby Mall has a community feedback on the recent submissions regarding the Hornsby Park area. Won't say much as I'll let the photos of the signs speak for themselves.

Quarry Road Track Closure due to Rifle Range “Danger”

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

We’re paging mountain bikers, walkers and joggers from Hornsby and beyond to help us in our charge to find a more workable solution than the present Trump-like “answer” of gates, walls and fences to lock everyone out of the extremely popular Quarry Road Track from Hornsby to Dural. The transcript of the letter/report that I have personally sent is shown below for reference; it’s rather long but the Abstract is a pretty good summary of the situation for those who have been out of the loop.
