Trail Bikes as an Election Issue

20-Aug-2008

Both political parties appear to be recognising a win-win opportunity over the issue of trail bikes.

The research conducted for the State Trail Bike Strategy found that there was common agreement among riders, 'fed up residents', local government authorities and land managers that more legal, suitable places to ride trail and quad bikes need to be found, developed and properly managed.

The Labor government has been taking a heightened interest in the State Trail Bike Strategy, while the Liberal opposition has made some significant commitments including a pledge to overturn the current ban on recreational activities at Logue Brook Dam (which would allow the return of licenced trail bikes to the area), and additional funding of $11 million annually to go towards the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund.

RTRA will be seeking specific clarification on the position of both parties and will report back to members as soon as possible.
