Hi riders,

Hope you are enjoying the trails at the moment. Although a bit loose and slippery, they are riding really well.

Thanks to the group of volunteers who have been maintaining the trails. With X Adventure approaching, we have a Trail Care Day this Sunday Jan 20th. If you have an hour or two to spare, please drop by the sea container on Chapman St at 8.45 am to be paired up to prune a section of trail. BYO gloves, we have rakes and tools. Note that the Cycle Club receives funds from hosting X Adventure, which go directly into our trails, and we would like them to look great!

Check out Facebook Cape Mountain Bikers, or MRORCA for photos and results of the joint Summer Series downhill action being held on Thursday evenings. There has been an awesome 90 to 105 riders attending, with a good number of talented kids!

Thusday social chatty MTB ride starting from the Country Club. Meet in the car park at 5.30pm. Bring cash for a drink afterwards.

See you on the trails!
