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

Just a reminder that the Port to Port MTB stage race is on this week and coming to Glenrock on Sunday.

The race starts from Belmont Golf course at 8am and they ride via the Redhead/Whitebridge trails then up from Dudley Beach carpark to Scout Camp rd and into DeLuge.
Front runners might be there around 9 with the main traffic being from about 930 ‘til 12.
The course takes them out to the picnic bench then up Snakes & Ladders, back to the Gun Club gate, around Kenny’s and Dr Seuss exiting at the Treatment Works onto Scenic Drive.

Seismick Tree Planting

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

The area around Seismick has been attracting much interest recently with the clearing and hopes that the MTB trail might be expanded, well that’s not just yet. What is happening is stage two of the regeneration of the area by planting native trees. Once established the natives will naturally reclaim the area, shade out the weeds and provide a much needed canopy and shade for the trail.

Winter

The dog days are approaching
A dark time of mischief. The world lays dormant, waiting rebirth.
Perfect time to get out for a ride
The interclub series is a series for riders. Sure racers are welcome and we expect some fast times on the track but the point of the series is to just get out there and enjoy it. Along the way we check out the diverse array of trails we have on our doorstep. Every track has different feel, a different aspect and different challenges but they all have a great vibe

Running Event

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

Just a reminder that the Coastal Ascent running event is on tomorrow – Sun 28th of April. Most of the course is within Glenrock.

Although they don’t use any of the MTB singletrck they will be on the management trails and it would be impossible to do a lap without crossing the course.

Please be aware and careful as there will probably be large numbers and a lot of these people will be novice and unaware of the MTB trails.

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.
