I noticed they've had the concrete saw out and are ready to replace the cracked ashphalt on the new trail. Just beware that there could be significant hazards over the next few days - might be worth…Continue
Got a call from Ron Bellchambers. He's spent a lot of time and energy letting people know about the 'proposed' dam in Brownhill Creek. Check out www.brownhillcreek.org and think about attending a Public Call to Action -Wednesday November 30th 7.30pmMitcham Village Uniting Church101 Princes Road (by Mitcham Institute) The more awareness out there, the more likely we are to save this little gem of a place.See More
You're not alone. Been riding down James and Old Belair for over 4 years now and occassionally get the odd w...er doing as you describe. You did the right thing. Hopefully said w...er gets a call from SAPOL and is never…"
"Was there still a lot of debris on the track after the rains? I put a request in to Mitcham council to have it cleared up, but used Brownhill Creek yesterday so don't know if theyve gotten around to it."

"I had a Belgian living with me for a while. We'd ride to and from work together. Initially we just got off and pushed our bikes up, but one day he gave it a crack and got up the switchbacks no probs. I figured if he could do it, why can't…"
"Thanks BJ. I can imagine it's a wild ride coming down..
OK, in my head I'm planning a ride for tomorrow morning that takes in a few bike paths I haven't tried.
I'll head up the Lynton trail, then wind across through Corromandel…"
"It's not easier than Kalyra, but definitely more interesting - and car-free! We're happy to go up it, but use other routes like Belair Rd to come down. Slight poetic licence - two options riding down the path. 1. Wear your brakes out 2.…"
