There have been a few reports of severe vandalism at the Medowie Track again. I'll try to get some more information, but in the mean time it might be best to avoid it.
There is a Facebook page that has regular updates.
Just a quick update on the Medowie track. Looks like the guys have been busy with repairs. Most of the structure has been fixed and they seem to have added some extra berms and jumps to deter the motorbike riders.
Just a warning, apparently there has been some vandalism at the Medowie track, some of the structure has been destroyed and reports of fishing wire being used across the track. (See link below).
During a Medowie afternoon ride, Phil and I decided to play 'don't touch your brakes' for one loop of the trail, which according to Phil is something Stefan plays to hone his pisspoor riding skills (apparently he's Strava KOM at Medowie).
So after one 10 km loop we came up with 21 brake touches (one caused by Muffin suddenly appearing in front of us after one of her shortcuts) and I managed two stacks (both without touching my brakes..).
So there's the challenge - beat that! (I'm sure I can given another run at it - and probably up the stack count too.)
Apparently this was his first time riding Medowie. The GoPro was mounted to his chest. Notice where the tree stump hit......
Luckily no broken ribs.

Here is the product of a ride with the dog at Medowie singletrack this arvo. Yes, propelling my hips forward rather than up did get me much further over the little double jumps, but the Trek's left chainstay didn't like it.
Now let's see whether Trek's lifetime frame warranty is just that..
