Nowhere To Ride

There's hardly anywhere to ride legally in NSW.

Land developers, policy exclusion, clowns and noise has resulted in closure of nearly all available areas.

Now there are Environmental problems as riders push into areas they would not have used previously.

Erosion from new track creation, grooving of water diversion banks (roll-overs), creek bank destruction and spreading of weeds and diseases from unwashed machines are all problems now.

Mobile Phones

Most riders have them, and most of us carry them. Coverage is reasonable along much of the Great Divide, with reception available from some surprisingly remote hill tops. Choose your carrier though. Telstra still has the best coverage, while some of the others are almost useless outside of the major centres. The choice of phone also makes a difference. Some units are built for city use and have low power transmitters, while others were made specifically for the Australian Next-G roll-out with considerably higher signal capabilities. Check it out before you sign up.

Mobiles are mostly useless in the desert unless you are very close to a town. Again, Telstra will give the best chance of getting a signal in the spinifex.
