Merry Xmas to all RTRA members!
Another year comes to a close and a big thank you to all RTRA members for your support in 2011!
They say it's the squeaky wheel which get the oil. Well after 5 years of squeaking (loudly) it looks like 2012 is shaping up to be the year we get some much needed lubricant. The state government is promising long overdue funds towards recreational trails. Certain members of the industry (who shall remain nameless for now) are finally dislodging their heads from the sand and throwing their support behind our activity (which as the main beneficiaries they should be). Even some areas of local government are recognising the leading role RTRA is taking and showing some interest in various projects.
All in all 2012 promises to be a landmark year in trail bike riding, and perhaps this time next year WA may lead the country in its approach and management of the activity.
So stay tuned, stay safe and have a great Xmas/New Year!
