VTRN Newsletter No.2

We came up with a name for the VTRN newsletter at last!

Re-Traction

Not that we aim on doing too many retractions

Thanks to those that helped out and sent pics, we still need more and Disco has been slack sending through the ones he has collected. Don't forget the Victorian Trail Riders Network can be anything you want it be because it is a network. So send in anything you think relates to trail riding in Victoria and let's see where it goes from here. Supporter numbers are growing by the day and support runs both ways.

Thanks DBW for your support too!

Thanks for keeping us informed Bruce.

Has there been any explanation for the techniques of track closures (diggin & tree felling) like the two examples in your pics? I would love a future newsletter interviewing the DSE, etc.

Any chance a long term goal to be for VTRN to get an environmental imact study of motorcycle specific trails compared to other man made changes in the bush, ie) 4WD, logging, DSE track closures, Mountain bikes & horse trails?

I think an independant study would give interesting results for the power that be and the 'greenies' in their oil burning combi vans.

Keg,

Interesting thought you raise. Horses are a great example. One or two every so often doesn't make much of a difference but there was a mob running a business down this way under licence from DSE until a few years ago. Horses cut corners, compact the soils and spread out when ridden through the bush in groups. Below is the evidence. These pics were taken in September 2004 and I promise every bit of bare ground was caused by horses and they did this for more than twenty years.






Compared to a bike on the same flat ground I know what I think is worse. Five years down the track and the places where these horses went still hasn't shown much sign of recovery!
