Will you be stepping up and competing this year? We have Events and Categories to suit all riding styles and skill levels including social riders, so why not register and give it a go.
If not we are always looking for volunteers - why not help out we have jobs for everyone in First Aid, Timekeeping, Setup and Packup, Marshalling (best seat in the house!), to name a few.
Watch this space for more information on individual events as we get closer to the day. Generally registrations open 2 weeks before events, and we try to discourage registration on the day.
Social Events and Trail Building
Social rides are a great time for everyone who attends. Come along for a casual ride, meet new friends, and generally hang out with like minded MTB riders. Suitable for confident riders right throught to elites, everybody rides at their own pace, sweep riders ensure nobody gets lost and we even have a medic. Social rides cost $5 for non-members to ensure you have insurance. Yet another reason to join!!
Trail Worked Bees are an oppertinity for you to give some time back to the club by helping groom and maintain our trails. Guided by our Trail Building Commitee members you will man the shovels, rakes, hoes and other implements to repair and smooth over whichever tracks need attention. These are also used to complete urgent repairs to our trails after rain and other weather events. Studies show 120% of people who participate in Working Bees gain a greater appreciation of the tracks they ride!
For further information on any of our events please ask us on Facebook, or email

We'll try keep this updated as often as we can but some days we might not be able to inspect the trails. Use common sense about wet trails - read the Wet Trail Closures article for more details.
Reminder about rule of thumb: 10mm of rain normally needs 6-8 hours of sunlight and drying time. Check rainfall data for Black Weir (Douglas, Ross River Dam Pallarenda on BOM website.)
