A network of fire trails that spans from Blaxland to Yellow Rock. Great for a short rides. Best for linking the Lower Blue Mountains to create some epic rides.

Hey,

I am new to the site, new to Perth in fact and have just decided to get back into some mountain biking after being out of it for a year or so. I have just put a Giant Talon 4 on lay away. Unfortunately these only come with some Santour XCT forks and I am hoping to get myself some new ones to put on when I pick up my bike in the next few weeks!

Just a note to say that Menai is very close to becoming open again!!! There was a ride day yesterday for the volunteers who have been doing the trail building (upto around 9kms at the moment) of nearly all new trails.

There is more information available on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Menai-MTB-Park-pr... and for anyone who has ridden there previously, its looking good. It has similar feel to how it was originally but with better trail construction.

Ourimbah XC maintenance

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

Hi Folks,
Feel like some cross training? Feel the urge to give back to the trails we love to ride? This Sunday there is a maintenance day planned to tackle the critical issues, the entry to the drop off and the top of roller coaster. Yes there are more issues to deal with and they are on the agenda. More hands means more work will get done.

Sunday 8am onward, till as long as you like!

Bring any of the following, wheelbarrow, shovel, steel rake, your bike, water, gloves and some elbow grease.

Cheers
Rob
