The artwork is called ‘Wylde Ride’ and was created by Milne & Stonehouse

The artwork deconstructs cogs and bike elements and acts as a wind vane in celebration of the mountain bike track. It accompanies the refined mechanics, gearing and bicycle design with the sensation of wind and flying through the air.

Rocky Trail shakes it up in 2015 - SHIMANO MTB GP reloaded!

The SHIMANO MTB Grand Prix Series is in its seventh year in 2015. Under the patronage of SHIMANO Cycling Australia and with its host of major sponsors and supporters it has grown to one of the major cross-country endurance racing series in Australia.

Which gloves for XC?

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

I went in store and tried on some gloves and found that XL best fitted me. L was unable to get on without a fight and XL was loose and had extra finger length. I ordered a pair of XL Fox Incline (full finger) and a pair of XL Fox Tahoe (Fingerless) from The Bike Shed. After recieving them I found them a little tight to get on but I have full movement once on. Once out riding I start to loose feeling in my thumb, pointer and middle finger and start to also get pins and needles.

Mount Hay

At a Glance

Mount Hay Gallery

You can only get so close but you want to get closer and touch it as the view is amazing. Unfortunately NO BIKES past the end of Mt Hay Rd. If you want to get closer, bring a chain and lock plus some walking shoes.

Overall A decent ride with not to many steep hills. Trail was relatively smooth and the views are amazing.

Kincumber Reserve

Kincumber Reserve Gallery

Located just south of Erina Fair (to the East of Gosford), there is a bit of a mix for everyone here.
Firetrails for the beginner, some intermediate single track and a small but sweet downhill trail.

You have the option of riding up from the north side (near Erina Fair) or driving in from the South (via Kincumber) if you are less inclined to do the climb. Not particularly well marked, but difficult to get lost.
