   One way trails the way to go

    Friday, December 02, 2011

Author: Paul Neve

I had been off the dirt bikes with motors for the last 22 years or thereabout.  So I have enjoyed getting back into dirt bike riding in a big way, riding my road registered enduro bike at any chance that I get. I must say that I love to ride my TM 250 2t EN fast. Which brings me to the realization that official riding areas with a one way trail network are very important to the recreational and sporting pursuit of dirt bike riding.

So far I have been to West Coast Safaris' Ride Park at Kirup, which has a great mix of enduro style loops of varying difficulties and a natural terrain MX style trail.   Great opportunity to ride and learn in a safe environment without have to slow down because of the possibility of another vehicle coming the other way. 

I have also been out to Dirt Rider Heaven at Mogumber which has more MX style tracks to ride - a great place to learn and hone the bike riding skills - again in a safe environment with everybody going the same way. 

Both of these areas are on private land.

This makes me strongly aware that part of what RTRA is working towards - open public riding areas with controlled direction trails and a mix of different style of tracks for all ages to use -  is heading in the right direction and is the right direction for a sustainable safe dirt bike riding community for all.

I strongly believe that the State Government needs to head in this direction with a sense of urgency. And that we all need to make enough noise that it takes notice NOW.
