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.
Upcoming advocacy events would normally appear here, but things are a little quiet at the moment and it's empty.
Don't be shy - this is a community site so if you're out there working post your meeting.

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.
Council is developing a new 'Open Space and Recreation Strategy' for the City of Blue Mountains.
To be able to make good decisions for investment in the future maintenance, planning and development of open space and recreational facilities in the Blue Mountains we need good information. A great part of this survey is the recognition of Mountain bike and Cycling trails.
Mountain Biking in the Blue Mountains is still very new to council and lacks almost any funding despite the fact its been and active recreational sport for over 20 years.
A hot and humid day where we didn't manage to get the new XC section open as yet, but next build day we should have it done. Trail is through but needs some more work on the tread plus one corner is having rockwork for re-cambering and the creek crossing needs serious rock work which Adrian has planned.
For the DH one of the old doubles has been made a table top with the next one being done at the next build day.
Thanks again to everyone who turned up.
Looks like next build day will be mid to end of February, the date still to be locked in.
