"A gondola connecting the Wollongong escarpment to the beach is the centrepiece of a grand plan to transform Mount Keira into an adventure playground.
The proposal, put forward by Destination Wollongong, aims to revitalise the under-utilised mountain and encourage people to visit the region by capitalising on growing interest in adventure tourism.
This Saturday the 21st at 9:30am Blue Mountains Council will be doing the official opening ceremony of the Knapsack DH track. This should include some councillors and BMCC officials and staff that have been involved or interested in the project.
Meet either at the gate on Barnett St of Lovers Walk or at the Trail head sign at the track head at 9:45am.
As if riders keen for some gravity fuelled action needed more encouragement, their post (see Official Opening of Knapsack DH This Saturday 21st September) mentions they are trying to get a BBQ going too.
Get on up there and enjoy!
So, I've had my old DH frame kicking around for ages. Put it up for sale once or twice with no interest. So it's been just cluttering up my shed and as the young bloke has been getting more and more into riding and smashing rims and what not on the DH trails on his xc bike it's been in the back of my mind to build it up for him.
Going through some of the bits and pieces I had left over from the shop I realised I had most of the things it needed on hand.
