Fernleigh Track is reopened after it was closed due to the recent Gateshead fires. The fires have certainly changed the atmosphere of the track for that section, but we all know the Aussie bush regenerates after such an ordeal. I’m looking forward to watching the regrowth happen over the next few months as I ride the track.
Clearing the undergrowth as has happened has highlighted the number of existing mountain bike tracks. I have ridden some of them in that area, but had no idea just how many there are.
