****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.

Port to Port Stage 4

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

I jut rode the new single track that is in stage four of Port to Port.
It was easy enough to follow from the Greyhound training area, but didn't see where it went once I got to oakdale rd.
I went straight ahead and rode through some existing single track that was used in the 2015 event.
I then found it again on the west side of the fernleigh track... until I lost it again at an unmarked t intersection.

Has anyone ridden the full track and want to provide a Garmin track/gps track, please.
The track they provide on their website isn't exactly a quality image

Cheers

Quarry Road Track Closure due to Rifle Range “Danger”

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

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.

Titanium 135x10 bolt thru skewer???

Does anyone know if there's a titanium 10mm bolt thru skewer available?

Building up a set of wheels for the carbon hardtail and want to beef up the rear over the standard QR.

I'll probably go with a 10mm bolt on but am wondering if there's a Ti option for these because, well...as the kids say...because titanium. Laughing out loud

New fire trail off Cowan trail?

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I noticed today on Cowan trail it appears there is a new fire trail branching off to the west about two thirds of the way along.

Looks like it has been recently cut in, along with a few "layover" areas on the existing Cowan trail. The ground is still covered in grassy vegetation, but I didn't see any other evidence of vegetation removal such as tree stumps and the like.

i didn't explore the full length as I was with other riders, but I saw pink ribbon markers going a little way further ahead.

Does anyone know anything about this new trail section?

Lost helmet & gloves at Manly dam

Hi. I left my helmet and gloves near the log in the car park in front of the school at the trail head for Manly dam. If you've spotted them, could you please let me know? It was a black / charcoal lazer helmet, and a pair of fingerless specialized gloves.

Many thanks.

Padding recommendation

Had a fairly major crash six weeks ago that resulted in a broken elbow. Still some time till full recovery but want to make sure I have some good elbow and knee pads for when I can ride again. I focus on endurance rides so really looking for something comfortable and not bulky. Any recommendations? Thanks

Wakehurst Parkway Tunnel

Hey guys,
This is prob already been spoken about, but does the new tunnel they want to put on the parkway at seaforth affect the Dam or does it just miss it?

Cheers

Bottomless Tokens

Just wondering what peoples experiences with bottomless tokens have been like. For those who may not be familiar with bottomless tokens take a look at this: https://www.sram.com/rockshox/technologies/botto...

I've been riding around with the standard factory installation of two tokens in my Pike (140mm travel), however, I removed one before today's ride and was very pleased with the results. Running the same PSI I found there was an improvement in small bump compliance and overall plushness.

Fantasy Enduro - Online Fantasy game for Enduro World Series

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I wasn't really sure what category to use - but Events seemed somewhat related?

Hi Guys

I recently launched Fantasy Enduro www.fantasyenduro.com an online fantasy game following the Enduro World Series. If you follow the EWS then I reckon you'll probably enjoy playing Fantasy Enduro.

Its, free and easy to play. Theres no salary caps, reserves benches or trading windows - I've dumped all the "football fantasy" stuff and kept it more related to MTBing.

Round 1 is this week and the first lockout is Saturday Evening.

Gloves

During the last 3 months I have gone through three sets of gloves. What do you recommend to buy for trail riding with gel inside so you don't get pins and needles.

FOX Servicing

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

These days local bike shops can replace seals on FOX shocks & forks but that's it. Anything else needs to be done by the importer Sola Sports.

A couple of weeks ago I was at my local bike shop, Velocipede at Parramatta, and told them my shock needed to go to Sola and asked what the quickest turnaround would be as I've heard nightmare stories of delays and every day my shock is away is a day I can't ride...

Zig Zag Railway at Knapsack Bridge Track to Glenbrook Raaf Base

Hi Everyone,

I have been recently exploring the Knapsack downhill track and found the bottom of it after setting off from Penrith to the GWH to Mitchell Pass on my mountain bike. I was hoping to find a track to the RAAF base so I could get to Glenbrrok. Does anyone know a better way to get to the RAAF base?
