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.

Perfect for those looking for an introduction into downhill riding or a warm up for the Cannonball. Starting at the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift, riders roll through single-track with never ending rollers and smooth berms to keep the flow going, it is a blast top to bottom. The steady gradient gives riders a more mellow ride, but still providing the adrenalin rush of downhilling.
