“Trail Bikes – Issues and Challenges

“As outlined in this paper, the current levels of trail bike use are causing environmental damage and significant community conflict with residents and other forest recreationalists. Whilst it is noted that many of the issues are caused by the illegal and inappropriate behaviour of a minority of riders, it is anticipated that the problems will increase in scale with the increasing levels of use driven by increasing motorbike sales and outward growth of the metropolitan fringe.”
