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

Hey guys,
This is prob already been spoken about, but does the new tunnel they want to put on the parkway at seaforth affect the Dam or does it just miss it?

We'll call it amber still, it’s drying out slowly but there are still some wet patches that are holding moisture.
Overall it’s pretty good though.

There's only one puddle on the tech section you need to ride through which isn't deep on the edge. There are big trees down just after Claires Bridge

Manly Dam update for 18 Apr

Manly Dam

Amber/Some Issues

Trail was very passable, although a bit muddy in places. Real problem is the bad erosion and rutting in parts, particularly on the north side where it shares with walkers. A couple of times I had to push up slopes as the trail was so degraded it wasn't safe to ride.

Advise you only try this trail if you are a competent rider with a decent bike - knobbly tyres and preferably full suspension as there are lots of dropoffs and rough, sweeping runs.

Narrow Neck update for 18 Apr

Trail itself is fine if you are on a decent bike. Just be careful if you're on a cyclo-cross or similar as some of the steep descents are covered in large loose rocks and slippy gravel, so traction is crucial. At one point I just had to hang on and pray as I slid at speed down! Some nice fat know knobblies would be your friend here.

Note also that the road in to the car park is in terrible condition with huge potholes and a nasty drop-off from the tarmac end. If you're not in a 4x4, take extreme care.

Quite a bit of water still on the track – especially along the flat section at the top. Even so, discernible riding lines are available without needing to get to amphibious.

Rode on Friday the 14th – still some very significant puddles and mud patches all the way along perimeter , though definitely improving. Could still do with quite a good windy dry spell, but rideable if you're prepared for a good cleanup

A lot of mud on the bits I rode yesterday (Friday, 14th) . Started on Kenny's - was okay for a short time then just got worse and worse! I'm from the UK so it was like a Summer ride for me!! But it's pretty bad in parts with corners and some climbs slippery as hell.

Should have ridden the road bike today! Trail was very sloppy.... don't think I've seen it this wet in a long time! Needs a long break from rain before it's worth riding again.
