Thieves using social media to target high end bikes

I got blown off last time I raised this but I see a report in yesterday's Manly Daily from the Northern Beaches LAC's crime prevention officer that three bikes a week are being stolen using social media to identify targets.

Ourimbah DH where to park?

Hi downhillers,

If i go alone to ourimbah DH and have no shuttle, should I park close to the tower or at the trail head parking?

If the latter, how far is the walk (pushing my dh rig) to the tower? Is it doable?

At a Glance Section on the Site

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

G'day, I have been using the site for a while now but I still can't figure out how to use the line graph in the "At a glance" section that appears on every page of the tracks you search. For example, on The Brisbane Water National Park page of the Site, with reference to tracks, it states "Fire trail 15 for 30kms 89% Single track Enclosed 1 for 0.4kms 1% Exposed 2 for 3.1Kms 9%. I've been trying to work it out on my own for a few years and I am baffled. Does it have something to do with how much of that 30kms is ride able because of current conditions, or obstacles like steps etc?

Shout out to "Mountain Bike Suspension Centre"

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I took my DT forks and fox RP23 to Simon @ Mountain Bike Suspension Centre.
What a fantastic service experience.
Simon is friendly and professional.
only took 2 days to turn around - ensuring I had my suspension back for the weekend.

He took photos of the filthy oil that came out of my shocks and kept the buggered seals to show me when I came to pick them up.

went for a ride this weekend and it was like riding a new bike. the suspension is smooth and plush again.

Mt York ascents

If a bloke rode up Berghoffers and then had to decide between riding down Lockyers or Lawson's Long Alley, and then back up the other one, what would folks recommend a bloke should do? Based on a preference for least hike-a-bike work.....

And if a bloke then wanted to get back down to Hartley Vale, is there a fourth descent that is reasonably rideable or should he just ride back down one of the two that he came up?

All this is assuming that it isn't too cold to get out of bed on Sunday morning of course.....

Lost: tool bottle at Manly Dam

I lost a black tool bottle - scratched up and with Woolys Wheels logo - at Manly Dam this morning.

I'm guessing it was on the extended loop, on the singletrack just after the pipeline - that was where I managed to endo!

If anyone finds it, please PM me.

Dog Friendly?

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

Hi All

I am heading up near the Wattagans to do a bit of camping.

I was thinking about doing some mountain biking at Awaba while in the area.

We will have our dog with us and I was wondering if dogs are allowed on the track?

He is well trained and usually runs with me in Sydney.

Cheers guys.

This weekend's Tathra MTB Enduro has been postponed due to torrential rain and local flooding.
The event has been rescheduled to August 27/28, 2016.

An intense low pressure system along the NSW Coast has dumped over 300 mls of rain on Tathra during the past four days, resulting in widespread flooding. Gale force winds have also felled hundreds of trees.

Another low pressure system is forecast to bring further rain to the area on Thursday and Friday this week.

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.
