Manly Dam closure
Just wondering, now that the trail has been reopened to MTB's, can this ride be turned into a joy ride?
The Dam will never have seen so many riders going around the trail at the same time!!!
I reviewed the full Plan of Management quoted in the press release, and found that they have mis-quoted the source document. The Plan gives council the right to designate particular areas accessible by mountain bikes, and the wording does not exclude singletrack.
In other words, they have used a technicality to close the singletrack, but the technicality is WRONG. So unless there is a document I haven't seen, it suggests to me they are compelled to re-open the closed sections.
What follows below is a technical argument - read or glaze over as you will :
