MTB trail for the new Malabar Headland National Park

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

The planning process is underway for the future of Malabar Headland in Sydney's east and people in the surrounding areas are eager for a nearby mountain bike trail. Currently there is not a single trail in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. Please help all the mountain bikers in the Eastern Suburbs by advocating for this trail. The project needs all the publicity it can get to have a chance at becoming a reality!!

This petition currently has over 600 supporters, but the more the better to convince the decision-makers to allow this project.

for the last 4 years at least.Made a good quick loop when i didnt have time to get to Menai or over the north side.Ive seen horses,dirtbikes and numerous walkers with dogs off leads.No one has ever had a bad word towards me riding a bike there,but i agree it would be great if it were formalised

On line petitions don't work that well. There were over ten thousand electronic signatures protesting about the anti-cycling laws and Baird simply refused to show up or send a delegate to accept the petition.

Can you get us a contact or a link to the submission process?

You should also reach out to Trail Care.

I have been personally contacted Micheal Daley, the local member for the area and Noel d'Souza, the Randwick City mayor. If you were to contact one of these two people(either by email or phone), that would be a great contribution.
Their emails are:
