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.

The driest it's been for a week this morning, although not completely dry yet. I'll have a better look soon and post up a report. Just hoping the weather holds now - it's a bit 50-50 in the forecast.

Should we MTB of NSW be concerned with the degrading of our State Forests

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

I have been MTB riding in the Mid Coast region over 20 years which is by international standards highly valued for its rich biodiversity. Sadly with Corporate demands and short falls in quota promises, our Forest and its Fawna have paid the cost dearly. This broad clearing dries the future forest out it becomes more flamable these trees also do not precipitate moisture like their predecessors. The justification has always been jobs and revenue but in an ABC news article 2 years ago it showed that the industry runs at a loss and forestry axed one third of its workers, in response.

Conditions are a bit dryer this morning but still damp with some puddles.
Stop Drop and Drain (Ha!) will help things.
This afternoon looks like it might be OK and tomorrow morning looks to be the best before more rain is forecast.

Glenrock State Conservation Area update for 27 Sep

Status:

Things are drying pretty well and should be OK to ride this arv.

There's just a few puddles around.

If people have a chance to stop and drain them that should speed up the drying time and reduce the impact of the puddle growing in the future.
