Sugarbag Trails MoU Signing

Sugarbag Trails MoU Signing
CORCA Sugar Bag Trails Map

Starting out as a few tracks snaking throughout a forest nestled between Sugar Bag Road and the Caloundra industrial estate the Sugarbag trail network has steadily grown into what it is today – 12km of tight single track littered with technical features.

As the trail network has recently been sanctioned by the Sunshine Coast Regional Council a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the council and the Caloundra Off-Road Cycling Association (CORCA) for the ongoing maintenance and development of these trails has been drafted and will be officially signed on Saturday 6th August at the old council storage yard off Sugar Bag Road, the event will start 8am and will run until 1pm, with the signing at 8:30am. Morning tea, lunch, and drinks will be provided. Take your favourite trail care tool if you would like to lend a hand maintaining the trails.

I would like to congratulate CORCA and Kurt Martin (Sunshine Coast Regional Council) for their hard work securing the MoU and the future of the Sugarbag trail network.

The club will be spruiking its activities and initiatives such as the Parklands MTB Trails Project at the Nambour Together ‘mini-festival’ this Sunday. For those who don’t know what the festival is about: “Nambour Together is a festival day that showcases the best food, entertainment, art and services Nambour has to offer with a touch of local flair.”

The event will be at Quota Park, Matthew Street, Nambour – starting at 11am and going through to 3pm.

We’re aiming to get our image out into the local community as much as possible over the next year to drum up support that will hopefully result in more members, connections, increased awareness and donations for trails maintenance and development and MTB activities and events.

If you happen to be in the area be sure to drop in and say hi.

Kenilworth/Conondale Ride Summary
3km 300m up

What a glorious time of year to be tackling the challenging yet scenic rides. It has been a while since the club has been out in the Kenilworth/Conondale area and a lot has changed with the Charlie Moreland day use/camp ground area but the route remains the same – beautiful with awesome views.
