Action Needed: Current Trail Advocacy Campaigns sticky icon

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

This thread will attempt keep up to date on trail advocacy campaigns currently requiring action.

It's worth noting that behind there scenes there is pretty constant stream of lobbing by riders and their supporters. Many people do a lot of work on this, which inevitably leads to some government or local authority department putting out some plan or strategy or policy document for public comment.

This is where you come in: Without public support for such documents, all the work in the background to persuade authorities to get this far will have been for nothing!

Ranger Danger! sticky icon

This is the rather tongue in cheek section dedicated to news and events we hear from local rangers. We were going to call this section, "News from the Rangers", but when the suggestion, "Ranger Danger!" was floated as a lighter hearted description the particular rangers there at the time grinned in agreement - so here it is.

If you are a council, park or forests ranger then feel free to contact us to have your news posted on this page.

We're hoping that this will become an informal way for authorities to liaise with the mountain biking community. Hopefully this will make their job of maintaining the varied lands we ride on that much easier. Easier life for rangers equals happy rangers, equals rangers more willing to help riders, hopefully equals better trail access and maintenance.

Lane Cove National Park update for 23 Jun

Status: 
Amber/Some Issues

Rode through from de Burgh's bridge to Day St exit off Devlins. Pretty wet in the usual places - Avondale Creek, up near the Koombalah Ave entrance, north of KP Rd. Some track work on the Koombalah Ave entrance means the sharp drop / pinch just after the entrance is now concrete. Nice little lip at the bottom for some air and plenty of traction coming back up. Didn't ride to top of Devlins as its usually the wettest part. Day St entrance is OK, but there has been some erosion at the bottom of the hill so be a bit careful if flying down from Day St. Penno Park trail is fine, with the sand being nice and firm.
