If they're going to close trails, they need barriers at both ends, or at the very least the end that most riders enter the trail from! A few years ago I did a bit of a spin at Lysty, hit one particularly mushy bit of track & wondered why it wasn't closed to let it dry out a bit. Found the barrier at the other end of the track, which struck me as a bit dumb.That's a really good idea idea. Only challenge is that unlike a snow resort, people don't start at the bottom or top of a chairlift. The chairlifts are also staffed whenever running, so they can update signage immediately when weather changes.
Places like Lysterfield people can join onto the loop from wherever they want, so they aren't going to see signs at the main trailheads.
That's just bloody below average behavior that deserves a name and shame.There are some real pricks that ride Lystie. I work at the Angliss and a pt came in the other day with a badly broken elbow. Two fuckers rode past him and wouldn’t help, even though he asked. He was pushing his bike with one arm and using a sling he made from his jacket!
Yeah it’s just shite! Hope the dude is going ok, haven’t seen him at work for follow up as yetThat's just bloody below average behavior that deserves a name and shame.
I've only ridden there once (Dec 24th) and unfortunately came across a poor bugger that had busted up his shoulder pretty well, myself and my guide sorted him out for meds, slings and transport...and we were both riding Yetis no less, so those two that rode past this fella mus'tve been next level arses.
Nah they'll say it's lots of walkers and that they need to convert the mtb trails to walking tracks (looks at wallaby hop,,,)Do you think at some point ParksVic might start to realise demand for MTB is increasing?
Trails were pretty damn dry today, parks have actually done some drainage works (?!!) and humping hound and redgum are still closed. I actually don't think they'll get destroyed, damaged maybe, but not like earlier this yearGetting a bit of rain tonight and then it will get smashed for the rest of the weekend.
