We're Riders Too!
And working for you!
If you want someone to get things done, then it’s best if you have passionate supporters on your side, especially if they know exactly what the situation is.
We’re riders and have been faced with exactly the same problems you have, and we’re doing something about it!
We are working with land managers to reduce the environmental impacts of trail riding so as to preserve trails for the future. In doing this we will develop a NSW Trail Bike strategic plan with input from riders and stakeholders such as NSW Police , Forestry Corp, Local Lands Service and the Office of Sport to enable trail management and a long-term partnership into the future.
With thousands of NSW Trail Bike Riders, there is a need for a Peak Body to represent their concerns about access to riding areas. Our aim is to take those concerns to the relevant bodies in order to create a viable relationship that ensures the future of trail riding.
