Current status –
York Off Road Vehicle Area is good model for distributed, smaller areas to provide facilities – particularly for younger riders.
Shire of York should be commended for their foresight in developing this area and the tourism and economic benefits makes a difference to these rural towns. Support a town that supports bikes and Stop in and get some fuel, food, drinks. Riders need to respect the area, other users and the local neighbours.
