BEING involved with Glenrock Trail Alliance for three years, I have been trying to tell anyone who will listen that Glenrock State Conservation Area can become an international mountain biking destination on par with anything in Australia and overseas.
In my opinion, it is National Parks and Wildlife Service that is holding this back.
I feel they are is just not understanding what is needed to achieve this, or they do not actually want this and are not prepared to work for this outcome.
In Glenrock, we have two trails which are perfect to be used as "postcard trails" with ocean views, yet these two are currently closed to mountain bikers.
I intend to contact our local member, Tim Owen, and get him to push for Glenrock to be a tourism attraction for Newcastle.
