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

Had a few mil's of rain here just after 7, has left things a bit wet but a fair chance to dry out during the day. I'll check later or anyone can put up a report, please.

Promoting Glenrock

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hey, has anyone got a bit of time to spare tomorrow?

I have received this request from the NPWS Ranger;
“The discovery program are doing some promotional photography and would love to get some shots of mountain bikers in action. Photos may be used on the website or interpretive signs etc.
We need a few cyclists at 9 to 9:30 at Gun Club Rd gate.”

So just be there around 9 and introduce yourself to the photographers. Hopefully conditions are a bit better for riding.
