Hey,

I am new to the site, new to Perth in fact and have just decided to get back into some mountain biking after being out of it for a year or so. I have just put a Giant Talon 4 on lay away. Unfortunately these only come with some Santour XCT forks and I am hoping to get myself some new ones to put on when I pick up my bike in the next few weeks!

Dungog Common Gallery

Dungog Common is a MTB area next to the township of Dungog that comprises 650 acres and currently about 30 Km of MTB single track mostly blue and some black. I would call it a hard XC track or AM track. Ideal for Gravity Enduro.
We are working on new tracks and extensions all the time and you can expect another 10 Km within the next couple of months.

In Orange 17-19 of January

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

Hi All,

I'll be in Orange for a long weekend from the 17-19 of January. Sounds like there is some great XC riding around Orange and I should bring my bike along.

Anybody local up for some rides Friday, Saturday and/ or Sunday morning? I can try to find my way around with GPS, but I guess it would be much nicer (and saver) with somebody local to show me the trails.

Please let me know.

Cheers,
Volker

Menai / Lucas Heights - Its getting close to opening again!!

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Just a note to say that Menai is very close to becoming open again!!! There was a ride day yesterday for the volunteers who have been doing the trail building (upto around 9kms at the moment) of nearly all new trails.

There is more information available on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Menai-MTB-Park-pr... and for anyone who has ridden there previously, its looking good. It has similar feel to how it was originally but with better trail construction.

1st place BMORC, Welby 7hr

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Round 4 of the SRAM Singletrack mind series was held at Welby in the Southern Highlands.

Having raced at Welby last year, I knew what I was in for; not huge amounts of climbing but technical pinchy climbs that really sap the legs. Getting flow and holding momentum is really hard at Welby. In saying that, it is a really fun track to ride around - perfect place for a social ride to take on your mates.

On Saturday afternoon Craig and myself headed out for a couple of recce laps. The course was dry, dusty and loose. It was fun to ride around but would prove to be a tough racetrack.
