Why is the Push such a big deal?
Paluma Push is a Rockwheelers volunteer-run event to benefit our community. Some of the profits from the event support critical equipment for remote rural fire brigades. But a big reason we run the event is to fund the development of mountain biking services and infrastructure in Townsville. Just imagine how bare Douglas would feel without the trails that events like Paluma Push have helped fund. Just imagine how empty our calendar would look without all the rides and races that have spawn because of a growing club and a growing network of trails. And without volunteers, there are no community benefits and there is no event!
This year’s Paluma Push requires a special effort. Please don’t leave the burden to a small band of regulars. Tell yourself that you won’t let those regulars burn out because you are going to find a way to do your little bit to help the Paluma Push in 2017.
