So, what’s going on?

Posted on Hornsby Shire Council. Sweet.

Hornsby Shire Council has some great news for the thousands of mountain bikers who love the trail in Old Mans Valley: it is going to stay open throughout the rehabilitation of Hornsby Quarry.

“For a while it looked like we would have to shut it down, but now it will only need to close for a few months while it is altered,” Hornsby Shire Mayor Steve Russell said.

“Council knows what that trail means to a lot of people, so we put considerable effort into finding a solution that would allow it to stay open.

As many of you know, the hugely popular track at Hornsby will need to be closed off shortly as the Northconnex project requires passage for vehicles to the Quarry. Understandably, there has been a great outcry about this with pleas to save the track.

After this liaison, here is the latest update, emailed to SNORC members:

Hi xxx,

So what new trails are in store for Hornsby Shire for 2016?

Which is quite inconsistent with their 2011 publication regarding MTB:

Update: Apparently the email address to send them to is submissions.berowravalley@environment.nsw.gov.au, rather than the ones listed below (though why not send them to both...) - thanks Watty

Well the Hornsby MTB community has had breakthrough after breakthrough. After much opposition to our cause, we finally got the go ahead for a 3km track. Then we were allowed to build another 3km to it.
Then a bike festival was put on last month which was a roaring success.
