Below is a preview, click to read the full post

That's how much material was used last month to remediate a badly eroded section of the Manly Dam trail (8 tonnes of crushed sandstone and another 2 tonnes of flagging).
A small group of volunteers joined Trailcare for the first volunteer maintenance day at Manly Dam in more than 2yrs
The 3rd Saturday of each month is the new recurring date for volunteer maintenance at the Dam
Northern Beaches council and the rangers at the dam are supporting our sport by supplying material and hand tools for each of these days

Trail Maintenance

Heads up to all riders. PMBC funded trail works are being conducted at the Goat Farm over the next week. Please ride with caution I have bunting hanging in trees to warn you that I am somewhere ahead. Maintenance day is to be held on the 24th of August for all that are interested in helping with the hand work. Cheers Paul Neve

Goat-head Punchervine Harvest Festival

They're back!. The goatheads, punchervine , peace thorn, what ever you want to call them, Tribulus terrestris, are ready for harvest by your bike tires. The thorns of these amazingly pernicious plants are now ready and waiting for you to help them move on to their next locations. I have recently seem plants up to several metres in diameter around the city and today harvested about 10 kg of plant from around the Belmont area. Unfortunately, many of the plants were already dropping their thorns, so they will be back next year.

St Ives sniggle

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

A can of worms about to be opened perhaps? But a few questions about the sniggles parallel with Mona Vale Rd between the Wild Flower Garden and Forest Way turn-off:
1. Are these trails legal?
2. Who is/are the landholder(s)
3. Who built these tracks?
4. If legal, can I help maintain them? If not, then I don't want to be caught trespassing!

Over to the brains trust...
