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

Hi All, a heads-up from Hornsby Council I received today:

"Hornsby Shire Council are getting closer to what will be a first phase of public consultation for developments that will restore the former quarry site and the adjoining Old Mans Valley site (containing existing MTB trails) in Hornsby for varied recreation pursuits and am developing a contact list of stakeholders and mailout lists to advise of the upcoming initial consultation phase.

Plug for 'Dynaplug'

I recently made a purchase I am so happy about I though I needed to share with NoBMoB:

Anyone who has read my blogs knows a puncture ruins my races. I’m absolutely crap at getting a tube in and getting back on the bike. My usual process is I stop and turn the bike upside down then rotate the wheel so the hole is at the bottom and hold my finger over it in the hope the sealant will block it.

Lane Cove National Park update for 14 Jan

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Status: 
Green/Open

Main trail, Devlins, Penno Park fire trail good. Visited the top part of Terry's Creek track for the first time in a while and it has been completely re-done with the pipeline work there in the last year. What was a twisty, narrow, rooty and rocky little track is now wider, smoother and straighter. Even a new (not cycle friendly) little bridge. Rate it green now compared to blue previously.

Do you have more information?
