Look forward to checkin out all the recent trailbuild achievements. just got back on MTB after 2 months of nursing a shoulder injury.
Ha! Yeah pretty impressive on a DH rig. The furthest I ever managed to ride my DH Comp was just past the tree berm/drop thing.Saw a dude riding a Specialized Demo up that firetrail alongside Aneurysm last time I was out.
Literally rode it the whole way up... super slow, but he made it!
Dude has legs of steel!
Agreed.Here's an idea, maybe rather than labeling riders with less skill as 'idiots' we could actually look at trail design solutions that mitigate damage due to a variety of riding styles. It may be that rock armouring that area is necessary if rutting or forming of brake bumps is occuring, or the corner/lead-up re-aligned to actually handle the use of the area.
What is the process the track planners go through to plan, design and implement proposed changes and what is the approval process?Always interesting to read any type of feedback. There are a number of views held by the individuals doing the work on these trails, I expect that once the changes have bedded down some adjustments will be made.
I assume most riders who spend any time at Lysterfield are aware that the best place to provide this feedback is the LDTR Forum at lysterfieldmtb.com which is one place the tail builders are sure to see it.

Yeah I am riding Sunday morning, and have a set of lights on order so once they arrive I will be giving night riding a crack and seeing what its like...Rode there Monday night. Great work on the trail maintenance guys.
First time riding at night. Loved it. Had a bar mounted light and a underpowered head torch. Definitely need a better helmet mounted light next time. Riding at night was a lot of fun. Saw two Owls which you don't get to see during the day and the walabies are not as quick at moving off but I'm keen to do more. With daylight after work vanishing it will soon be all I can do anyway.
