This film was recommended by the guys over at Tyres and Soles and we love it. Its tells a story of almost everything we love. Road tripping to explore new trails in wild places seeking adventure and flow.
There is no big goal being chased here but its nice to be able to recognise small landmarks as they happen. This site has been live for just a 4 days and today at 1543hrs we crossed the 100 views in a day line. Nice to see folks out there in the interworld are finding and reading our posts.
On this website we have decided to use a similar grading system to that used in the UK by Forest Enterprise. Its slightly different to the IMBA grades used in Australia where they have only one grade (Blue) covering both the moderate (Blue) and difficult (Red) that we prefer. We feel it gives a better indication for people relatively new to the sport.
As with all grading systems its VERY subjective and is only an indication. Ride within your limits and ride what you can see. (This is good advice but we would be lying if we said we always follow it!!)
While very very rare snakebite is a real possibility out on Australia’s trails whether on bike or on foot. The continents venomous snakes are internationally renowed and as a potentially very serious injury its worth knowing both how to prevent and how to deal with a bite.
The Glenbrook singletrack (normally ridden as the last part of the Oaks Trail), in Sydney’s Blue Mountains, has been closed due to asbestos fears following evidence Sydney based excavation company Moits has been supplying contaminated material.
Note: it’s only the single track that’s closed, riders can continue down the Oaks fire trail to exit via Glenbrook
Magic Carpet starts of with some fun floaty gap jumps before a couple of berms lead into a rock drop off followed by a fun step up onto a big boulder. Down from there gets loose and rough. Loads of fun
