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.

Muppets Return

To see this feature in context with others in the same area, view Ryland & Muppets map.

This is the return single track to turn the Muppet Show into a complete loop of a little over 2km.
Most people do this loop clockwise.

Mona Vale Sniggle

To see this feature in context with others in the same area, view Ryland & Muppets map.

A nice piece of single track between St Ives Showgrounds and Rylands Track & Muppets.
The track is fairly narrow through the scrub. It's fairly flat with a few bouldery bits, but nothing too challenging.

Ryland update for 27 May

Status: 
Green/Open

Rode Muppets and Mona Vale / St Ives Sniggle this morning for the first time. Both tracks were very dry and in excellent condition. A couple of bits were a little sandy and loose as there hasn't been rain for ages.

Do you have more information?

If you've ridden here lately please add a more recent report. This will be useful even if the condition is the same as updates expire after 30 days.
Please do not post comments with such information - post a new update with the link above.

Manly Dam track is open again

The Manly Dam track near the school is open again and slightly remodelled (even including a sort of jump - lets see if that stays)
