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

The NPWS singletrack at Loftus offers some fun riding. Here is a bit of video showing the highlights

Been having lots of fun digging out music for recent POV videos. This track is Fire Works and Beer (LIVE) by the Bloody Muffs
I’ve made the effort to start vlogging some trails with the gopro. Here is some footage of us having fun on Kentlyn’s Magic Carpet Trail.
The riders in front are Jason Lorch (tyresandsoles.com) and Big Jason McCready.
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
