There is more to be done, look out for our next Trail Care Day Sunday feb 26. 8.30am for a couple of hours or so.

We are preparing for two MTB events in March, Vineyards 101 ride, and X Adventure.

Mondays GRASSROOTS Ride was well attended with about 7 younger kids, and 7 older ones plus parents and helpers. Competition was tough, with timed rides over various trails according to ability and confidence.

Next  GRASSROOTS Ride Monday Feb 20. Check out Facebook for more info and term timetable.

Social beginners MTB ride Sunday Feb 12th at Margaret River. Meet 2.30 pm at Rotary Park for a ride on Return of the Jedi.
