Manly Dam Mailing List is Offline

Given all the rain of late, some people might be wondering why the council rangers haven't sent an official closure notice for the dam.

Just a heads up on that... I spoke to someone today who had met with the rangers and the topic came up. It seems the mailing list is currently offline and no updates will be sent.

At this time, please then use your common sense and take note of Manly Dam status update.

Please do not ride this track in the wet for obvious reasons (see General Trail Etiquette).

Thank you Smiling

Fun Social MUni Ride at Manly Dam

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Just a heads up that I'm organizing a fun MUni (Mountain Unicycle) ride at Manly Dam on March 26th meeting at 8:30am.

It's posted as a ride in the Western Sydney Unicyclist website. If you are a two wheeler at all interested in watching, taking photos or videos feel free to tag along. Or just up for a nice relaxed social ride. Will be going at a slow pace (~2 hours), stopping and playing at all the fun sections.

Find more about the ride here: http://wsuc.net.au/node/20305.

Manly Dam Closed 7-11 February 2011

Just in from the Rangers...

Good Afternoon Bike Riders,

We have engaged contractors to undertake vegetation trimming along the single use sections of track, and this work is scheduled to take place during the week of 7-11 February 2011. Due to the use of power tools and the narrowness of the track, the track will need to be CLOSED while work is in progress for the safety of both riders and contractors.

Works are scheduled to take place between 7:30am and 4:00pm on the following days/locations and riders will need to plan alternative routes as access will be blocked. The contractors have been asked to clear all debris from the track at the end of each work day so early morning and late afternoon riders should not be inconvenienced, however all care should be taken.

Monday the 7th and Tuesday the 8th on the track in the southern section of the park between Seaforth Oval and Wakehurst Parkway Fire Trail

Thursday the 10th and Friday the 11th on the track in the northern section of the park between the turn off from the fire trail below the Roosevelt Avenue tennis courts at Allambie Heights and King Street, Manly Vale.

We appreciate your cooperation.

Kind regards,
Manly Dam Rangers

Riders needed for Manly Dam photo oportunity - tomorrow!

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Now... although Manly Dam is closed I've been contacted by a photog who's looking for some pictures of riders in a bush setting with lighting.

This is a rather urgent requirement as they are looking to take some shots tomorrow evening (that's the Dec 8th) at dusk. I'm assuming that would be somewhere around 8pm.

I think this is something to do with an advocacy campaign so would be in riders interest to help out. Although I understand what a PITA it would be to kit up and get out there not to be able to ride was hoping some locals wouldn't mind taking a little time tomorrow to do that.
