"A gondola connecting the Wollongong escarpment to the beach is the centrepiece of a grand plan to transform Mount Keira into an adventure playground.

The proposal, put forward by Destination Wollongong, aims to revitalise the under-utilised mountain and encourage people to visit the region by capitalising on growing interest in adventure tourism.

S&S C grade reversal corner

Just started a bit of work on our new DH trail. Skinny Mal and the crew have been going gang busters doing all the hard work just went up today to do a bit of the fiddly stuff.

It all starts with a fast naturally cambered section and then swings up into this corner.

This gives us a natural grade reverse to help control water but has the issue of having the possibility of water sheeting across the trail in the braking and turning zone

Keep your eyes on this one guys as it has great significance to the local MTB scene!

Hey guys,

As you would be aware, Ku-ring-gai Council has recently put some signs up the top of the trail implying that it is an approved bike track. This is however not entirely the case. It was apparently too well built, to justify the cost of destroying it so they put the signs in as a temporary measure.
