Ride with Respect.
The public, the land and fellow riders!
Stay legal, stay safe!
The Parliamentary Petition "Support Trail & Adventure Motorcycling In NSW" now MUST be debated in Parliament!
The Motorcycle Council of NSW’s Trail & Adventure Riders sub-committee has worked hard to have this petition reach it’s goal and with YOUR help it has succeeded!
But there is more to do….
The petition HAS to be debated in the Lower House and that means YOUR Local Member needs to know from YOU about what trail riding and in particular, single track, means to you. So get out there, talk to your representative and get them on side so they can get up and speak their piece in the debate for YOU!

How many more?
We are losing riding areas faster than ever and the recent loss of the Newnes Plateau has highlighted how disjointed we are as participants in our favourite activity.
Trail riders haven’t had any representation so the MCC is now taking the lead and has established this website and a Facebook page. We have an active sub-committee dedicated to making trail riding a legitimate lifestyle activity and you can support us by being a part of MCC of NSW and being an active participant to help us secure our right to ride.
Unlike other States, NSW doesn’t have a trail and adventure riding strategy so we are working with Outdoors NSW & ACT to prepare a Discussion Paper that will highlight the issues that need to be addressed. The Discussion Paper will allow us to engage with the other stakeholders, such as the land managers, NPWS, Forestry Corp and Crown Land. It is important that we engage with the land managers if we are to retain access to areas to ride.
Is there an electric/battery trail bike in your future? Then you tell us what you want!
Fill out our electric trail/enduro bike survey
Electric bikes have been around for a while but not really set our sport alight, maybe because they aren’t quite right to suit our purpose yet. What we here at the MCC of NSW want to find out is what YOU want out of an electric/battery bike. We reckon that the manufacturers should be putting together something that does what we need, not what they think we need. So here’s your chance to put forward your list of what is essential. After all, we’re going to be forced this way in the not too distant future so let’s make sure that future is the one we want.
Recreational trail bike rider survey results
Thanks for responding to the trail bike survey. Over 2,400 riders responded, a fantastic result. We would like to share a presentation of the results on the MCC of NSW website here.
This presentation was prepared by Outdoors NSW & ACT and funded by the NSW Office of Sport. We are working with them to develop a strategy based on the results of the survey to establish trail riding as a legitimate & sustainable recreational activity so we can enjoy trail riding well into the future.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
You told us in the survey that you wanted representation for our sport in NSW, so now it’s up to you to do your bit to help us help you. Please consider joining the MCC of NSW Trail Bike Riders Facebook page here so we can keep you up to date with what’s happening and for you to provide feedback to us.
Advocating for Trail Riders,
We value our right to ride legally on Crown Land and support the rights of all land users and the public. We are at your service and we will promote and defend our rights as legally permitted holders of riding licences and using fully registered trail bikes . Your concerns about trail riding issues are our concerns.
Currently we are working with various local representatives of the Local Land Services and Forestry Corp to provide alternate trail routes around sensitive areas in order to both protect the environment yet retain our access to existing trails.
