ROAD TRIP! Trail Care Learning Day at Gap Creek

Kurt from the Sunshine Coast Council is organising a trail care learning day for us (Sunshine Coast MTB clubs) at Gap Creek on Saturday May 14th. If you’re interested in learning how to develop and maintain trails while getting your hands dirty please register at:

To all sunshine coast wide MTB clubs,

I have arranged a trail care learning day with Gap Creek Trail Alliance(GTCA) on May 14th.

The goal of this day is to gather those on the coast who have an interest in sustainable MTB trail development and head down and spend time with GCTA to share experiences, knowledge, as well as participate in some hands on trail work.

As such I have arranged the following:

A bus to depart from Etamogah pub @ 6am on Saturday the 14th of May returning from Brisbane at 1pm for those who would like to travel down together and save their fuel.

We are going to be doing some trail building as such everyone needs:
· Fully enclosed foot wear
· Appropriate sun protection
· A couple of litters of water

Lunch & a morning coffee on the way down will be provided.

Unfortunately due to the full nature of the day riding is not planned as part of this trip, if anyone would like to ride before the trail care session begins they would have to arrange to head down independently.

Registration is required for the day so I can gage interest and arrange bus sizes and lunch:

I hope some of you join me on this day to spend some time networking across groups and focusing on the one thing we all need to be able to ride, trails!
