Oxford Falls closed sections: where is this heading?

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I went for a ride at Oxford Falls (Morgan Road) yesterday, in the rain, very early. I haven't been there for 5 years so I was a tad uncertain about where all the tracks are and how they'd look, although I used to ride there pretty regularly so I did know my way about in a general sense.

"Cycling infrastructure needs work"

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hi all,

This popped up on my uni site- regarding cycling infrastructure etc...
http://www.usyd.edu.au/news/84.html?newscategory...

And the Medical Journal of Australia editorial they are referring to...
http://www.mja.com.au/public/issues/190_07_06040...

And the rather disturbing article that brought it all about...
http://www.mja.com.au/public/issues/190_07_06040...

Lots of great references in there for people to use when advocating for trail infrastucture - the Medical Journal of Australia can't be wrong...

cheers,

Australian Cyclist Nov/Dec Issue

Anyone got a copy of this? Manly Dam got a nice write up and Cupcake got himself in it not once but twice!!! Even down to the point where you can see the words "cupcake" written on his bike.

When is the next trail maintenance day on the dam?
