Glenrock State Conservation Area update for 05 Jul

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

Conditions are still wet and more showers forecast for over the weekend. The trails won't be OK to ride just because the rain has stopped, things will need time to dry out.
Riding the road or Fernleigh Track will be a better option.
For those that really want to get in the bush fire-trails and gravel management trails are OK to ride but please don't be tempted to sneak a little single-track.
Anyone that checks things please post an update - good or bad all helps keep people informed.

It's raining again and the forecast isn't good. Given that things are already a bit wet means that conditions are not good for riding.
Please post up if you have a look at things, good or bad.

Much better drying conditions today and looking a lot better in some places but still not all dry. Fire-trails are still the best go.

Mostly dry through the day today but we'd struggle to call it Green, some areas were still pretty wet in the afternoon. Forecast looks better for the morning.

Bike thefts in Dee Why

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

A couple of weeks ago my Cannondale Rush 3 (the one with the leftie fork) mountain bike was stolen from a secure garage in Dee Why. I understand from the police that there has been a series of similar thefts in the area and thought it would be worthwhile reaching out to the community. The perpetrator was very blatant and besides cutting through a rubber-coated steel cable continued with the theft in spite of being confronted by my neighbour.

I imagine the model of bike with the mods that are on it would be very rarely seen around Sydney, so am hoping someone may have seen it.

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.

With no rain all day and good drying weather the trails might be worth a look this arv. I'm not around so please post up a report if you have a look.

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.
