Should we MTB of NSW be concerned with the degrading of our State Forests

I have been MTB riding in the Mid Coast region over 20 years which is by international standards highly valued for its rich biodiversity. Sadly with Corporate demands and short falls in quota promises, our Forest and its Fawna have paid the cost dearly. This broad clearing dries the future forest out it becomes more flamable these trees also do not precipitate moisture like their predecessors. The justification has always been jobs and revenue but in an ABC news article 2 years ago it showed that the industry runs at a loss and forestry axed one third of its workers, in response.

FOUND: Set of keys

Today (12.7.2017), I found a set of keys at the start of the service road that runs alongside the Great Western Highway from Barnet St, Glenbrook.

If you think these may be yours, I have handed them into Springwood Police Station.

Emergency Trail Riding Pack

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

Hey. I was just wondering what you would recommend to have with you at all times while trail riding?
I currently only have puncture repair kit with a few levers & pump which are on my bike at all times. I also have a 2watt CB radio which could come in handy in limited reception areas in case of emergency. As well as a medium size first aid kit (which unfortunately, I usually forget to bring as it's usually in my work bag).

What else should I be bringing with me?
Keep in mind I would be riding straight to trails from my house or transport via train and such.

All those who cycle in NSW will be aware of the law requiring a bell installed on your bike or face a $106 fine. The law has been around for a long time, however, with the recent increase in penalties for cycling infringements purported to be for cyclist safety Police focus upon this and the issuing of penalties has increased significantly.

Convict 68Km 2016 race

Hi
I am going to do the convict 68KM, I did ride the last Convict 50km and the last Husky 50km.
Anyone who rode the 68km last year or other convict events I am interested in your thoughts and experience on the event.

1) They say that the 68km has single track in it, how technical is this single track and what pecentage is the single track too fire trail?

2) Does the 68km have the down hill section of the old 50km with the hazadous gutters in it?

3) Any hints on the canoe as I am keen on riding it.

The bell tolls.

Here it comes - looks like I better get a bell for my mountain bike for when I am riding to a track. Taking this to the extreme, this could mean you will need a bell when riding on fire trails. I can see it now - 'bell inspection' officers at the bottom of The Oaks.
