The Blue Mountains Off Road Cyclists is a social hub to bring riders together, from beginners to professional, and provide a social link to discover different locations and meet new people.
So join the forums and watch out for social rides in the calendar or organise a ride yourself. The more people who get involved the better for all.

We have been advised of four locked in build days with BMCC and Synergy Trails for this year. These dates are:
So if we can get numbers like at the last build day in November we can get considerable work done. Hopefully the extra warning can help people to keep these dates free in their calendars.
Further details on what is planned to be achieved at these dates will be posted when we they are determined.
On Saturday we finished a reroute around the old eroded rock platform fire trail section. Adrian's plan was to utilise the surrounding rock areas as much as possible for the diversion. The result is a very "Knapsack" style diversion that is longer, techy and a good climb or descent.

Well council have surprised us and have said we have an opportunity for a build day on Saturday the 26th November. I don't know if anyone is still monitoring this site and I don't know what we would be doing but if you can turn up then really, well, why not!? I know we all feel somewhat forgotten.
So meet at Barnet St carpark at the end of Lovers Walk. If we can I hope we end up doing the last bit of rerouted trail that was approved in the original plan and REF near the rusty car. Still we will have to wait and see.
The new section of trail is now properly opened and rideable. Creek crossing is done and the awkward corner further up tidied up to keep the section flowy.
Thanks to all that turned up to get muddy and thanks to Trish and Adrian again.
We still need to do some more rock armouring for maybe another 50ft after the creek crossing through a damp area to make sure it doesn't get slushy.
