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

We had a fair bit of rain overnight, too wet to ride this morning. Hope for some dryer weather today. Please post up on conditions if you go for a look.

Thredbo Kosciuszko Flow Trail (lower half)

To see this feature in context with others in the same area, view Thredbo map.

KOSCIUSZKO FLOW TRAIL
Level: Intermediate
Distance: 4.5km
Style: Flow

Perfect for those looking for an introduction into downhill riding or a warm up for the Cannonball. Starting at the top of the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift, riders roll through single-track with never ending rollers and smooth berms to keep the flow going, it is a blast top to bottom. The steady gradient gives riders a more mellow ride, but still providing the adrenalin rush of downhilling.

THREDBO VALLEY TRACK
Level: Beginner
Distance: 5-20 km
Style: Flow
Highlights: Unrivalled river views • Easy going • Picturesque rest areas

Thredbo Easy Street

To see this feature in context with others in the same area, view Thredbo map.

Thredbo Pipeline Path

To see this feature in context with others in the same area, view Thredbo map.

PIPELINE PATH
Level: Beginner
Distance: 2 km
Style: Flow

With only a slight undulation you loop around the southern end of the village along the Thredbo River. Keep pedalling onto the Friday Flat Loop, Bridle Loop or Thredbo Valley Track or simply follow the track behind the big carpark, onto Friday Drive back to the village.

Thredbo Friday Flat Loop

To see this feature in context with others in the same area, view Thredbo map.

FRIDAY FLAT LOOP
Level: Beginner/Intermediate
Distance: 2.4 km
Style: Flow

Starting at the Thredbo Valley Track trailhead, riders cross undulating terrain, across bridges, through gum trees before a winding climb. This links the Thredbo Valley Track and Bridle Loop to the trail network.

Thredbo Golf Course Loop

To see this feature in context with others in the same area, view Thredbo map.

GOLF COURSE LOOP
Level: Intermediate
Distance: 2.4 km
Style: Technical

Starting at the top of Crackenback Ridge, access is through the top gate of Crackenback Drive. Riders then head out on the single track skirting the 9 hole golf course, along the Thredbo River. With a few small steps, short technical climbs and the odd rock garden to negotiate, this one is for the more intermediate riders.

Thredbo All-Mountain Trail (Friday Flat Finish)

To see this feature in context with others in the same area, view Thredbo map.

THREDBO ALL-MOUNTAIN TRAIL
Level: Intermediate
Distance: 10km
Style: Flow/Technical

Starting at 1930m above sea level, riders are taken over 10km down through the impressive mountain landscape with uninterrupted views of the Thredbo Valley. Although not as steep as the Flow Trail, it offers intermediate and advanced riders plenty of variety and line choice. Once at the Creek Station, riders can climb back to the Kosciuszko Express, take the easy cruise via Friday Drive or continue along the Thredbo Valley Track.

Terrey Hills / Duffys Forest update for 28 Dec

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

Epic puddles in the usual places on Perimeter and Long, and the last "wall" at the end of Long Trail is unrideable (with my XC semi-slick rear tyre at least) thanks to the line being washed away but the rest of the trail was hero dirt when I rode Christmas Eve.

Wilkins Track (off the end of the singletrack section of Perimeter) was a nice little diversion with a pleasant outlook at the end for something different, but won't be a regular fixture.

First time I've ridden after wet weather since the trail works were done behind the houses at the Fire Station end of Perimeter. Still a few puddles but the impenetrable bogfest is no more.

Green because ... management/fire trail.
