Details:

As some may know, the National Parks and Wildlife Service has released a discussion paper on mountain biking opportunities in the state's national parks and reserves. They have invited comment on the proposals in the paper and help shape our Cycling Policy and Mountain Biking Strategy. This paper can be downloaded here:

http://mountainbiking.discussions.nsw.gov.au/

Although no official communication has been made, we have it on good authority that this date/time/place is set for the Sydney North public forum on this topic.

Please RSVP to 13PARK (137275) or annual.passes@environment.nsw.gov.au

If you cannot make this meeting, please take a minute to visit the URL above and comment on at least one of the aspects of the paper. Just a simple indication you are behind sustainable single track trails for mountain biking in National Parks is all that is required.

Numbers mean everything in this matter and there are sure to be plenty of opponents of MTB present on the night!

If you can make this meeting, see you there! Please spread the word Smiling

I will register shortly but am likely to be late.

Thinks to self: depart work 4:40, ride 30km home, arrive 6:15pm, get changed, eat coupla bits of fruit and hop in car - hrrrnnngggh... I'm guessing I'll arrive 7-7:15pm. Sad

They close at 1630hrs so don't expect one now.

I RSVPed by phone a few weeks back and the guy said he'll pass on my name (whatever that means) so I assume they've booked me a seat at the grown ups table!

ps's picture

no response yet so I don't think you will get one.

Noel's picture

Saw what looked like an official NPWS notice taped to a pole at the Arterial Rd end of the Twin Creeks track today - covered in plastic, with the little tear-off strips at the bottom - advertising the forum last Thursday. Haven't seen them anywhere else (although the only other area I've been in recently is LCNP and there was nothing that I noticed at the De Burgh's bridge entry). Seems like an odd place for it, given that there's only 1.6km of legit trail at that end of Twin Creeks??

Maybe just a concerned local?
