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.

Bit of Casual Trailwork - Kenny's

When: 
Monday, 20 November, 2017 - 15:00

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Meeting Point: 

Kenny's Trail

Been really struggling to find time for a formal build day this month with so much happening in Newcastle.
As usual there are quite a few smaller jobs that need doing around the trails so I'm hoping to hold a couple of casual 'drop-in' style sessions of an afternoon this week.
At this stage I hope to be around the start of Kennys tomorrow (Monday 20.11.17) from about 3pm. The small drop-off after the first L hander needs rebuilding (again) and there are a few 'potholes' forming along the trail.

Manly Dam update for 17 Nov

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

All fine and dry and little loose today. Not sure that will last with the rain forecast. There was a vegetation adjustment crew out on the fire trail section so expect a few more sticks and vegetative matter than usual along there.

Hadn't ridden the Dam for a few years. It's got a bit easier with the track work in some areas and harder with the wear and tear. Will take me a few more laps to get all the lines right.

Had a head on with another rider just before the track pops out beside Manning Rd. No real damage but a bit of a shock as we both came around a little tree into each other. Is riding anti-clockwise common?

Do you have more information?

Gahnia is open again. Be careful as the track is strewn with leaf litter, making it a bit slippery in sections.

The Final Fling

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

A fun but sad weekend in Bundanoon for the 13th and final edition of the Highland Fling. Did the full camp out in the paddock thing. Registered and got my string to tie on the number and a couple of free CO2 cartridges (small). Ate food to support the local primary school. Woke early, so I was already in the dunny queue when the piper hit the paddock. Queued for coffee with my own cup in compliance with the Fling's waste minimisation approach. Breakfasted, prepped the bike, watched the Full Flingers take off and then kitted up and headed out for a short warm up before the Half Fling.
