Trail Bike Committee

trail bike.png

There are few places in NSW where community members can legally ride a trail bike ‘off-road’. A minefield of legislation applies to trail bike riding and law enforcement is divided between State and Local governments.


Our objective is to lobby the NSW Government and its agencies to develop, adopt and implement a NSW Recreational Trail and Adventure Bike Strategy that:

• Acknowledges trail and adventure bike riding as a legitimate and healthy recreational activity

• Enables participant access to suitable and sufficient riding areas, and where possible legitimises single-track riding

• Addresses the legitimate concerns of the variety of stakeholders, especially land managers


Our Vision

That trail and adventure riding is acknowledged and supported by Government, land managers and the general community as a legal, legitimate, healthy, sustainable, and active recreational activity

Our Mission

To collaborate with Government, land managers, and stakeholders to find solutions to the challenges of shared land use and, to maximise opportunities that reaffirm the benefits of trail and adventure bike riding


Trail Bike Survey Results

Our Strategic Intent document describes the plans, overarching purpose and intended direction of the Trail Bike Committee.


Trail Bike Riding Discussion Paper

In developing a NSW Recreational Trail and Adventure Bike Strategy, this White Paper aims to inform readers on key elements. This document is to be accompanied with the Discussion Paper on the same topic for full understanding. (8 pages)


Trail Bike Committee Strategic Intent

In developing a NSW Recreational Trail and Adventure Bike Strategy, this Discussion Paper aims to inform readers on key elements to be considered, and when accompanied with the White Paper, has identified some urgent needs amongst the stakeholders in the trail bike community. (48 pages)



Trail Bike riders are from all age groups but the most common is 45-54 years of age, closely followed by 35-44 years of age


Trail bike riding has been proven to provide mental health benefits for participants and also provides significant economic opportunities for regional communities


The average rider partakes in the activity 34 times a year and rarely travels more than 2 hours from their home to ride.


Cost of registration, noise, conflict between activities, lack of facilities tailored to trail bikes, safety and environmental damage are all factors that limit the growth of the activity
