IN March my husband and I visited Kosciuszko National Park.Many tracks we walked along were also open to bike riders.

The signs read 'bikes give way to walkers'.

For our own safety we found we had to jump off the track to avoid being hit when suddenly 10 to 15 riders per group hurtled past.

Most of these riders are dressed in protection for body and limb so they won't be injured.

In the past I have ridden my mountain bike around the Orange area.

There are many dirt roads, lane ways and forestry trails which would be better suited to this type of activity than the narrow, highly-erodible walking tracks of the unique environment of the Mount Canobolas State Conservation Area.
