Weekend Rides Summary – 28-29/04/2018
Cooloolabin Dam

It was a busy weekend just past with our members heading all over the place to compete in races, to camp and ride at the Hidden vale trails and ride on our Cooloolabin club ride and the rookie ride at Parklands.

The Rookie ride was at Parklands on Saturday morning and went pretty well with 11 riders and a couple new faces, no injuries and everyone having fun. The trails have finally dried out too. We went through the green loop, had a crack at the new blue flow trail then we went over the new Road Rage stuff and then around the Gumby Loop.

The club ride at Cooloolabin was a 2-part event with most of the group leaving from Yandina and climbing up the Bottle and Glass fire road then meeting the 2nd group at the Cooloolabin dam spillway. We had 16 riders this day with Jen being the only lady who accidentally started at Yandina but made it the whole way like a champion! Still a bit of mud around the dam but it was easily dodged. Great weather, good company, good ride! Thanks everyone.

There was a combined Bushranger/CORCA camping trip down to Hidden Vale which apparently was a lot of fun and well attended.

Congrats to Pete Bigaila, Chad Powers and Nikita Vandeleur and everyone else who rode in last weekend’s races at Glenview, Garapine and Townsville.

What a great weekend!
