With less than a week till entries close you need to get those teams organised.
Don’t forget the social ride this Thursday 12 October where we will be riding course 2.
And there is a working bee this Sunday 15 October which is our last chance to give the trails some love…..
Contact the Dam Dark email if you can help out at the working bee or any volunteer positions.October 13, 2017 at 6:32 AM #1773
If you want a shirt – ENTRIES CLOSE TODAY
We had 37 at the social ride last night, 2 big groups who tackled the trails at the dam. The trails are bedding in nicely with smooth but somewhat dusty tracks. There are still a few places to be cleaned up and a bit of brush cutting to be done.
The final working bee is this Sunday 15 October. Meet at the dam gate at 6:30am.October 13, 2017 at 7:02 AM #1774
While the trails at the dam are well on the way to being race ready they are likely to be a little dusty. It is highly recommended you get yourself a set of clear glasses. Safety glasses work well but if you want a more stylish option talk to the team at BNG Cycles.

Hi Leonnie… you just did 🙂 Let me know what you would like to do. I think Michael may need a hand with registrations and handing out T shirts.
Send me an email with your shirt size [email protected] dot com dot auOctober 16, 2017 at 9:29 AM #1784
How good was that….
We had 19 people at the working bee on Sunday… almost too many to count 🙂
Then we get a bit of soaking rain
With just a little more rain the trails should bed in and be in superb condition for the social ride Thursday and the race in less than 2 weeks.

Due to the rain and trail closures at the dam this weeks Thursday night social ride has been cancelled.
Unfortunately we are not able to re schedule due to time restrictions. However as soon as the dam trails become open it would be an ideal time to check out the trails which should be in excellent condition after the soaking rain through the week. Please note the dam trails are only available to Rockwheelers members at weekends as per our agreement with the council.
We have also continued to register entries – while the time for a T shirt order has passed you can still enjoy the best of the Dam Dark including the trails and the other freebies that come with it. Register in the normal way via the web site.October 20, 2017 at 3:09 PM #1802
Unfortunately the trails at the dam are still closed due to the rain, which means we won’t get a good look at the trails till race day, tomorrow week.
While sad, I say this with a smile on may face as the rain has come at a perfect time not only for our water supply but the fact it will keep the dust down and make the riding sooooo much better in the race 🙂
