Expressions of Interest in being filmed

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

Hi everyone,

I am an aerial videographer and I am developing a new way to shoot action sports such as mountain bike riding. I am looking for people in the Sydney and / or Blue Mountains area who would be willing to volunteer their time to be filmed by drone. As thanks, you would get to keep copies of the footage for your own use. It would probably take about a 3 hours or so on a weekend and would simply involve you riding some accessible trails at a convenient location while I film using a drone. We will also conduct appropriate safety briefings beforehand and discuss various logistics.

MTBA looking for member stories

Hi Everyone,

We are wanting to do a series of campaigns surrounding MTBA and becoming a member and we would like to use some stories from people about why and how they became a member.

Obviously we would be looking to people who have a real story to tell whether that they have overcome something very serious in their life and used mountain biking as their wellness tool.

FOUND: Set of keys

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

Today (12.7.2017), I found a set of keys at the start of the service road that runs alongside the Great Western Highway from Barnet St, Glenbrook.

If you think these may be yours, I have handed them into Springwood Police Station.

Decline in Races - What you said?

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I'd like to thank all the commentators on the question I asked and I think the outcomes were pretty clear, which I've trapped here. It looks like the end maybe nigh for the fling (see below):
1. Too Expensive (or not enough value)
2. Too many alternative races and places to ride
3. Not enough promotion particularly to younger age groups
4. Not family orientated enough
5. Making a state based series might get some interest back.

So the primary suggestions to the rider are:
1. Dont sweat and go to club races
2. Plan to ride away with friends

2017 trek remedy rsl review

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

After owning this bike for 6 months i thought i would do a review....
Size is 19.5 and i am 173cm tall, this fits me perfectly although the seatube is a little taller than i would like ,and in the steep stuff the seat can bang me in the arse (????)forcing me foward a little more than i would want, i have remedied (no pun) this by using a 35mm rise bar instead of stock and cutting width to 760mm.
I run the bike in the steeper setting everywhere and the geometry etc feels balanced.overall im happy with sizing and glad i didnt go down to a 18.5.

Found: Mitsubishi Car Key

Firstly thanks to the person who found, then handed in to the corner shop at Terrey Hills, my phone yesterday - it had fell out of my jersey pocket along Long trail. Good Karma heading your way!

When I picked up my phone the guy also had a key for a Mitsubishi - I thought it may have been mine as I drive one but alas it wasn't (spare key was at home).

So...if anyone has lost a key along Perimeter / Long trail recently let me know!

Not sure who has been up to Bright but this beautiful town probably has some of the best mountain and road biking in Australia. The Bright Brewery is sponsoring a charity event in September (www.alfred6hour.org.au) which will be hosted by the Alpine Cycling Club.

Bike choice for Rydal?

Hi Team

I'm staying at Rydal next week and will be taking a bike but wanted to check on what's the best steed for the Rydal MTB trails. Ideally I'd take my crosser so I can do some exploring afar as well but not sure if it will be out of it's depth on the trails down there. How technical are the tracks there?

cheers

Cripple Creek trail

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

Hey.
I was just wondering the preferred entry point for the Cripple Creek trail.. Blaxland, Warrimoo or Sun Valley?
In regards to not having to ascend too much, I'm fit to a certain point lol.

Emergency Trail Riding Pack

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

Hey. I was just wondering what you would recommend to have with you at all times while trail riding?
I currently only have puncture repair kit with a few levers & pump which are on my bike at all times. I also have a 2watt CB radio which could come in handy in limited reception areas in case of emergency. As well as a medium size first aid kit (which unfortunately, I usually forget to bring as it's usually in my work bag).

What else should I be bringing with me?
Keep in mind I would be riding straight to trails from my house or transport via train and such.

Hey guys.
I have been into the mountain biking scene as long as I can remember but only as of late got myself a hardtail that I'm happy with (not rich enough for a DH Sticking out tongue).
I live in Blaxland and of the past few weeks have been riding around the local area trying to find trails. I have found a few that look like they don't get regular use, & the use they get is from bushwalkers.

Decline in Races - Why is this happening?

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Many will have seen a recent announcement that the Highland Fling maybe following the demise of so many other races with even the Mont and the Kowalski coming to an end this year. I'd be interested in what people think as to why these things are happening. Is it:
1. These races are run for profit and not volunteers and therefore are prone to declines in sponsorship?
2. That people are changing habits and want to do more downhill when these races are marathon by nature?
3. That we're not promoting the sport enough?
4. That the races were just not that enjoyable?

Kiddie Friendly Tracks Around Orange

G'day All

Heading up to Orange with the family these school hols and was after some local advice on what tracks might be kiddie friendly (5-8yrs).

I am guessing there might be some more suitable options at Lake Canobolas rather than Kinross, but would welcome any pointers.

New MTB'er - Suggestions for good off road rides in the Hills District?

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

Hi - I'm recently back in to riding (used to go a lot in the UK in my 20s and just brought a MTB - but now in my 40s!)
Looking for some interesting rides around the Hills District... Seen some on the Hills Shire website, but nothing too exciting...
Does anyone have any suggestions for anything within a 15-20km radius of Castle Hill?
Thanks
Mark
