Hi everyone,

Just noticed on the BNSW site that the 'Draft Blue Mountains Bike Plan 
2020' is on exhibition at present and open for public comment.  
Submissions accepted until July 14th.
See http://www.bmcc.nsw.gov.au/home/publicexhibitionbikeplan/ for 
details, and a link to download the 162 page report.
I've only had a cursory glance at the plan at the moment, but intend to 
go through it more thouougly in the next couple of weeks.
Of particularly interest to me are routes getting to the mountains from 
Western Sydney - in particular, Mitchells Pass.
At present, part of Mitchells Pass (between Lennox Bridge and the Old 
Great Western Hwy) is a reasonably narrow one way road, coming down the 
mountains.   For a period after the bushfires several years ago, the 
road was closed to vehicles.
During that period I rode up Mitchells Pass several times.  Although 
it's a bit of a climb, in my opinion it is by far the most pleasant and 
direct way of conquering the Lapstone Hill and getting up into the 
There is mention of the route in the Bike Plan, although I couldn't see 
more detail in the cursory glance.

Anyone keen to put in a submission, or work in with others on a team effort?
