Welcome


Welcome to the world of Global Riders!

This site is a showcase of all the content from the Global Riders Network.

That being the case, visitors to this site may well see a lot more information and discussion than they are really interested in. It is recommended that visitors browse on a more localised partner site that has a limited amount of content. These sites are listed on the the Global Riders Network homepage.

That said, it's always interesting to see what's happening elsewhere in the world, so feel free to browse around.

Enjoy! Smiling

Lots of Planting and Refinement!

Ike Planting

Busy day planting over 100 plants in the area we previously cleared below the soccer fields of weeds. Its growing back with natives and this will give it some help. Good seeing Ike a second generation MTBer coming along and helping out too.

We also worked on some trail refinements to do with improved drainage and flow elsewhere. Gus and Tim realigned some trail for improved flow, air possibilities and drainage. We fixed a muddy section of existing trail below the soccer fields and started building a rock berm.

Planted around 100 plants in the area beneath the fields that we cleared last year of all the big weeds.

Good to get the young riders involved, especially in rehabilitating this area below the soccer fields.

Some rockwork to raise the tread and stabilise this muddy area that gets lots of runoff from the fields just above.
