Rookie Ride update
Ditch the training wheels!

Had a good ride on Saturday with Dave and Jason showing up to have another crack at Parklands and Tim coming to check it out for the first time. Ben and I took them through Terry’s novice track and the Ho Chi ho loop and we spoke about gear choice, braking, body position, picking lines and tried a few log rollovers.

No dedicated rookie ride on this weekend but you are welcome to come along to the Social ride at Ewan Maddock dam (Glenview) on Sunday. Check the calendar for the details.

Go G.I.R.L Women’s week 2016 events

Hello Bushrangers,

Exciting news!!! Our incredible Women’s Advocacy officer Susie has organised a range of events for Women’s week 2015 starting March 7th. On the Tuesday we have on offer coaching sessions with some pretty incredible female riders one being Janine Jungfels. Bushranger ladies who are lucky enough to score a spot in the coaching sessions will get a discount rate of $15 rather than $30 for non-members. Please fill in the expression of interest form prior to February 29th even if your not coming to the coaching so we know rough numbers for each of the events as there are a range over the week most being free. All participants do have to be signed up with MTBA insurance be a member of our club, another club or on the free 2 month trail. We also recommend women riders to join Susie’s Facebook group .

We encourage all Bushrangers members male & female to also let other female riders know about these Women’s week events as these are all inclusive and a great way to meet other riders and have some fun on two wheels! Same as all our rides please arrive 15 minutes prior to listed start time. If coaching proves to be popular we will aim to put more sessions for all riders in the future.
