If you have a couple minutes to help out from the city closing one of the best MUni tracks in Sydney, please keep reading. They just informed the community that they are closing sections of the Manly Dam Bike Track. See here for more details on it: http://nobmob.com/node/13024. Basically they say they are closing the fun and really cool single track sections due to safety for hikers and will force riders to ride on a very busy road instead. This will make the trail boring and much more dangerous riding on the road. It is one of the best mountain unicycle trails around Sydney and only a few minutes drive from North Sydney. I try and ride this trail once or twice a week. This is devastating for the biking and unicycling community so any help would be appreciated.
The first goal is to do a protest ride if you live in the Sydney area. It is scheduled for 9am on March 6th so please show up with a bike or unicycle to help support our cause! See here for details: http://nobmob.com/node/13025. If it is your first time, it will be a great time to learn the trail at a nice casual pace!! If you don’t live in the area please do the below option.
The second goal is to send emails to the councils and try and flood them with complaints so on Monday they have 1,000’s of emails. If you have a second, please write a short letter describing how you disagree with their decision and how they are in turn making it more dangerous. Any other info you can include stating how biking or unicycling is a good form of exercise, etc. would be great.
Here are the emails to send a letter to:
firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org
THANKS in advance to anyone that helps! I really hope that their decision to close it will be looked at and overturned! Please forward this on to any other bikers or unicyclers that may be able to help. And if you have any input or will be able to join the ride, please post below…
