On 15 of September, Hornsby Shire Council voted to build a mountain bike trail in the old Hornsby Quarry (YAY!)
The plan is for the trail to be built in 3 stages, with stage 1 a 2.5km cross country trail, and stage 2 a 3 km cross country trail (linking with stage 1). Stage 3 is a pump track. The trail will be suitable for all ages and abilities, with picnic and park facilities.
The submission is open for comments until the 30/9/2011 at http://www.hornsby.nsw.gov.au/about-council/on-exhibition/hornsby-mountain-bike-trail-plan
With Sydney notoriously anti-single track, Hornsby Shire Council has been visionary in approving this. So get your support in!
