Keep your eyes on this one guys as it has great significance to the local MTB scene!

Hey guys,

As you would be aware, Ku-ring-gai Council has recently put some signs up the top of the trail implying that it is an approved bike track. This is however not entirely the case. It was apparently too well built, to justify the cost of destroying it so they put the signs in as a temporary measure.

Thredbo DH

I am heading down to Thredbo to do some Cannonball shenanigans this coming Anzac long weekend.

Just wondering if anyone else had any plans to head down and wanted to get together for some runs down the mountain.

I will be riding Sunday 25th and Maybe the afternoon of Saturday 24th.

A sad day for mtb, the loss of OBR

Damn despite a positive report and encouraging recommendations BMCC Councillors last night voted to close down the long established trails along side Old Bathurst Rd, Blaxland.

Standing alone in support was Clr Luccetti.

The construction and continued use of "Candy bar", a poorly constructed and thought out trail at Mt Riverview condemned by senior riders since it's creation, was a contributing factor in this decision and those riders responsible need to take a long hard look at themselves.
