Knapsack Reserve – Toward Sustainability

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5WwB-7HrTI

At the foot of the Blue Mountains you’ll find Knapsack Reserve; a slice of nature with public walking and sustainable mountain bike trails.

This video is an introduction to Knapsack Reserve as a biking destination and an insight into the rehabilitation of a fragile ecosystem – one that is now accessible for years to come thanks to sustainable planning, public interest, and the hard work of Synergy Trails and the Blue Mountains City Council.
Watch the video, ride the trails, and have your say if you’d like to see more sustainable trails in the Blue Mountains, or in your local area. More numbers means more action!

Please share to let your riding mates know that these trails are open, along with the existing trails in Knapsack Reserve!

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I’m also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them.

So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • The EVOC brace link system is a clever little design that makes things a little more comfortable. 👍
  • Kuhl, one of the most premium and trusted outdoor brands in the business, are excited to announce a new range hiking trousers, now available in Australia.

  • At only 1.8 ounces, the Vertex stove is as simple and lightweight as it gets.
  • If you're looking for a more natural fitting hiking, trail or road running shoe, then check out the range from @altrarunning. We did and have never looked back.
  • We just love the feeling of merino wear next to our skin. It's incredibly soft and very comfortable even on extended hikes or rides. It has amazing heat regulating properties to keep you cool or warm. The best part, it's all natural!  #merinowool
  • Just contemplating the trails ahead is getting me all frothy. Good job I got my fresh @wetheriders.mtb T-shirt on to handle the excess froth at Majura Pines, Canberra. Let's get into it!!! 👊
  • The quality construction of the @hentydesigns packs have blown us away. We'd be hard pressed to find this level of quality anywhere else. And guess what? It was all started by a couple of guys who used to ride their BMX bikes around Hobart as childhood mates. See! There's lots of good reasons to ride bikes. 👍
  • We are getting very excited about the new Spartan Sport range from Suunto. It may just be the ultimate adventure watch? #adventureisoutthere #gpswatch
  • If you go down to the woods today you're sure to get a surprise.  Are you lacking some pop in your life? Then go get some Shredly.
  • The new @officialleatt convertible helmet has got us all excited.
  • It was a great turnout today at the @millcreekmtbtrails build day. A lot of hard work from the team followed by a beer and a sausage sizzle thanks to @specialized_au . The trails just keep getting better and better here and there's new ones on the horizon thanks to a strong riding community, young and old, with a passion for trail advocacy and sustainable trail building. --------------------------------------------------
