A successful collaboration between Council staff and the mountain biking community will be celebrated this Saturday. 

Local riders were invited by the Council to give their ideas for a redesign of the Jubes Mountain Bike track last year. The mountain bike track is located at the back of Golden Jubilee Field in Esk Street Wahroonga.

The goal was to redesign and rebuild the park to make it a more exciting experience for riders. New jumps have been created with a focus on experienced and advanced riders, while less challenging areas have been retained and improved for beginners. 

The bike riding community has pledged to be responsible for caring for the local environment and not construct illegal jumps in the area. A ‘Trailcare’ group led by local couple Alison and Damien Underwood has recruited volunteers to help look after the bike park. 

An Open Day is being held between 1pm and 5pm on Saturday 30 July to celebrate the new park. A free BBQ will be running and there will be competitions for bike riders to enter. 

Mayor Jeff Pettett said the remodelling of the bike park had been ‘a great experience for all involved’.

“The bike riders have a dedicated space that they’ve helped design and thanks to the Underwoods, we have a new group of volunteers to help us look after the environment.”
