OK, so your local council is looking at you like a three headed monster, this talk of legal Mountain Bike Trails. Surely no one has done it in Australia? Or have they?

Here are some links, hopefully for you or your council to use. I'll keep it closed to keep it tidy, pls PM me if you have any more links (Smithfield Cairns? for instance). If it's a 200 page plan and only page 60 refers to MTBs please let me know, as the more info we can give our bruddas the better.

I'm sure CORC has some Stromlo plans, in the meantime,
