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

About 30 mil of rain in the last two days now, trails won't be good as soon as it stops. We need a bit of drying time.

Heavy rain showers here mid-morning means the trails need a rest for a while.
How long depends on the follow-up weather now.

Dear MTBA Financial Member,

As you may be aware, the MTBA Board has been investigating options for forming a new entity to better represent all cycling disciplines in Australia.

MTBA has strongly represented the interest of our members and the sport of mountain biking in discussions and taken a key role in the ongoing planning with Sport Australia, BMX Australia and Cycling Australia.

These discussions have developed and refined a new proposed model for cycling in Australia, known as AusCycling.

A really good day of drying weather and the trails are starting to dry nicely this arv, now it all depends on the weather overnight. There’s a bit of rain forecast but at this stage it doesn’t look like much so we might see conditions OK by later tomorrow. I’ll try to post an update but if anyone looks please let us know how it is.

Yes it's raining. For people not close enough to check it out it is definitely too wet to ride.
Not sure when this will stop but trails will need some time to dry out so we're not causing damage and erosion.
