hi, i use to ride at meani quite a lot, but havent been on my bike regularly for the past two years. i heard there were some trail closures, but is the free ride section behind the sporting fields still open for riding? i went there this week and it appears to be an abandoned area... i did see some signage near the waste management site stating the afp were patrolling and the section was closed... is the free ride spot included in this???

Bathurst Bike Park update for 13 Dec

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

Did a few laps after a uni day in Bathurst on Saturday - what a great track. Track is now out to over 8km and has a lot packed into the space - lots of berms, log rolls, fast / flowy bits, short climbs, some fresh looking timber ramps and jumps. Could do with a few direction signs but take your time at junctions and you will figure it out. Suggest you take the B lines on your first lap, or at least stop and look first, as some of the features look innocent as you approach but have a surprise element awaiting (glad I saw the sign on the drop and gap jump just before I committed !!).
The loose gritty surface is slippery but there is almost always a safe grassy run off if you can't make the turn (about ten times for me).
If you are in town it is a good ride - if you are passing through it is a worthwhile detour less than ten minutes off the highway.

Do you have more information?

If you've ridden here lately please add a more recent report. This will be useful even if the condition is the same as updates expire after 30 days.

Spring

Spring has sprung. The grass has ris.
Rydal is where the action is

Welcome to Round #3 of the 4 Seasons 3hr series.

Ah, the end of the quarter, BAS, quarterly tax, paper work... But it wasn't always so.

Remember when life was simple? Remember when you rode your bike to have a good time?
When you rode because it felt good and the company you rode with and the tracks you rode were more important than having 1000 categories to choose from and a big list of swag to choose from.

Well CTMBC are taking it back.

Quick and kinda urgent question - tubeless conversion

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hey guys, pulled my tyres off to do a tubeless conversion, and am a bit stuck. I've never even seen the inside of a rim before so this may be a massively stupid question, but I don't want to proceed til I've got an answer.

I have the notubes sealant, valves and a roll of 25mm rim tape. My rims are 20mm (flat bit in the centre, not outside width) and I'm fitting a Minion to the front, High Roller to the rear.
