Trails: Old Mans Valley Stage 2 announced
The official word from trail builders, Dirt Art: Dirt Art are excited to announce that our company has been selected to develop the second stage of the highly-popular Old Mans Valley Mountain Bike Park in Hornsby, NSW.
The 2.1km (approximate) trail develop will build upon the existing trails to create a wide range of new, world-class riding opportunities. The development will include a number of natural and built-form trail features, including some newly designed features that have only just left our CAD program. Work is set to commence in late January/early February, with anticipated construction period of 4-5 weeks. Our team is looking forward to hitting the ground to turn the first soil on what will be an exciting new network of trails.
The Old Man's Valley Mountain Bike Park in Hornsby, in Sydney's northern suburbs, is already regarded as a tremendous success, with hundreds of mountain bikers visiting the perfectly built trails every week.
While the park itself maybe relatively small, the significance of the development is anything but, bringing legal, legitimate mountain bike trails to a part of the world that has long been very resistant to this notion. And now things are set to further improve, with the announcement that construction of Stage 2 of the Old Man's Valley network will commence very soon.
The OMV park is a bit of a favourite here at Flow; it's a great, short loop that we often use when testing bikes, with an awesome variety of features in a very compact space. We're very excited about the prospect of the next stage of trail development - it's another great step forward for mountain biking in Sydney.
