What no rides!?
Upcoming social/group training rides would normally appear here, but things are a little quiet at the moment and it's empty.
Don't be shy - this is a community site so if you're heading out and would like some company, post your ride.
Upcoming advocacy events would normally appear here, but things are a little quiet at the moment and it's empty.
Don't be shy - this is a community site so if you're out there working post your meeting.

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.
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...
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.
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
So, whatever your plans this holiday season, wishing you happy trails. Enjoy & stay safe.
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!
In case you hadn't seen Please! Stop riding Bantry Bay Engravings Trail: The selfish few threatening new trails... well... a gentle reminder of it's message:
It takes literally years to negotiate authorised access to trails in and around Sydney. When people don't respect the land trails pass by and deviate from them it jeopardises access for all. Both now, and in future projects.
Please respect the areas we have the privilege to be able to ride in and stick to formed, authorised trails only.
