Linking Strava to Trailforks

Do you use Strava? We'd love it for those who ride Lysterfield Park and who use Strava to link their account to a Trailforks account and set up ride logs. This helps accumulate data for us as a club, which will help us advocate for more trails and improve the park. Follow the instructions on this page: https://www.trailforks.com/ridelog/stravaguide/ Please do a bulk import of your rides if possible. This is one way you can help support the club, without giving up any of your money or time. Help us make the trails (and potential future trails) at Lysterfield Park better!
