2016 Xmas Ride - December 11

Did this come with bike?

There's not much 'real' news about these days, as can be seen from the 2015 Xmas ride still floating around on our front page!

So am taking the chance to remind everyone that this is actually a social site for organising MTB rides in the Sydney area. Who'd have thought Eye-wink

To that end, thanks to sikllama for posting up the NoBMoB xmas ride 2016. Come along and have some fun. Bike decorations are optional Eye-wink

And another gentle reminder: post it and they will come (eventually)... create a ride meeting regularly and, yes, eventually, you'll get some company.

Oaks Single Track Closed

Just a heads up for those thinking of riding in the Blue Mountains: the Oaks single track has been closed by NPWS due to "...potential asbestos contamination". Doesn't appear to affect the rest of the trail though.

Full quote:

Glenbrook Single Mountain bike track will be closed due to potential asbestos contamination. Riders and walkers will not be permitted on the track during the closure. Woodford Oaks fire trail riders can continue down the Oaks fire trail to exit via Glenbrook. Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, please contact the NPWS Richmond area office on (02) 4588 2400 or Blue Mountains Heritage Centre on (02) 4787 8877 or visit the NSW National Parks safety page for park safety guidelines.

Form more details see: http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/visit-a-park...

Old Mans Valley to Stay Open

OMV to Stay Open

In case you missed the good news, OMV to Stay Open.

There had been talk of shutting down an all too rare pocket of legal single track in our area, but long term closure looks to have been averted.

Rehabilitation work in the area around the track is due to start in July, so please keep an eye out for notices around this and respect any re-routing of the trail.

Full details in the link above. Thanks to Tristania for the heads up.

Happy Holidays from the Mod

The obligatory Long Track photo

Once again it's that time of year where we will all (well, mostly all) have time to get out on the trails and enjoy whatever form of riding it is we love.

Big shout out to all those who showed up to the Xmas ride recently and made it what sounds like a big success. And thanks to the other Rob for organising. Don't forget anyone can post up their social rides in the calendar for more of the same.

More thanks go to Tristan for his insightful post about the morning. Very good points for all those who have forgotten about the true meaning of Xmas... erm... I mean MTB Eye-wink

So, whatever your plans this holiday season, wishing you happy trails. Enjoy & stay safe.

Cheers Smiling

Let's say that again - Please respect areas our trails pass by!

Don't be an ass - stay off Engravings Track

A while back we posted a gentle reminder to please respect for the environment our trails pass through.

Sadly the message doesn't seem to be getting through. Take a look at this sign snapped by Hawkeye (and his rather more strongly worded post).

Nothing more to say!
