Hornsby Park MTB trail survey - done in 90 seconds!

Hornsby Park Survey - done in 93 seconds (by my son)
Hey, the kids have gone to bed (and if you don't have kids needing to do homework then just consider yourself lucky) - now sit back, relax with a green tea, pint of ale, biltong or my fav - a big bag of dog snacks. Put your feet up and start dreaming about descending trails, sweet jumps, painful climbs, nude cyclists (single speeders), grown men who think they are dogs, freakish talking dolls........ or whatever else floats your boat. Then pull this survey up and let Council know what you would like to see in the new parkland.

But seriously, DON'T RELY ON OTHERS DOING THIS! It's simple - the more submissions, then the chances of retaining the existing trails like Lava Flow (earmarked for removal and to be replaced with an oval) will be increased.

Simply follow this link to start the survey.

When you've done it, then get your mates to complete it.

Hornsby Park SNORC submission
By the end of March SNORC need to make a submission to Council. If you are keen to have input then email us your ideas. We will be compiling them to ensure we represent the cycling the community the best we can.

We will not be restricting our feedback to cycling. Most mountain bike riders like doing other things (hard to believe I know). So let us know what else could be included in the park to provide you and your family /friends with an excellent experience.

Please email your ideas to;
campbell.king@snorc.org.au

For those who did this: http://hornsbypark.com.au/consultation-feedback/

Will be interesting to see what they've taken from the feedback.

It would appear they are taking exactly what they want from the feedback - on the ideas for the Quarry void, more than 550 want mountain bike trails. 65 suggest Environmental preservation, promotion and enhancement. Later makes the list but no mountain bike trails.

Same with old mans valley - ~350 want a playground, 230 want sports fields - later makes the list but no playground

Of course the cheaper options have prevailed. Hornsby and surrounds does not need another boring sports field. :cry:
Road: S-Works Tarmac SL5 etap
Commuter: Trek Boone 9, Ultegra cable
Offroad: Old school Yeti 575, XT/Sram mix
