Notice of Cancellation of Group rides & events

by Secretary

Due to the current Covid-19 virus Global Pandemic, it is with heavy hearts, Bushrangers Mountain Bike club have felt the need to cancel all organised rides and events including club rides, new member rides, trail care, Gogirls, and Away Rides as of 23/3/2020 until further notice.

This is based on a combination of advice from Australian & QLD health department, regulations on social distancing, our club and individual responsibility and duty of care to the community.

Let’s take this opportunity to still get out and about on solo rides (perhaps use Strava Beacon function and don’t over estimate your ability – please play it safe), keeping not only our fitness up but let the light shining help keep our morale and spirits alive.

We have such a great mountain bike community and the ability to avail of communication channels to share our rides and experiences, helping to keep us connected in some way during these difficult times. 

So, take the challenge to explore local trails, maybe plan a potential new ride route for a future club ride, take lots of photos/videos to share on Strava or FB.

Do a personal ride report to lift the spirits of those that might be unable to ride. If isolated, take the time to develop your skills in small spaces, slow ride, bunny hop, wheelie, stoppie, skinny, track stand.

Let’s Flatten the virus curve quicker than a fat bike tyre on broken glass.

We look forward to seeing all your fantastic Solo shared ride experiences and creative media.We will get through this more enthusiastic and stronger than ever so stay positive, keep safe, support each other and keep the wheels turning.Stay safe keep riding

Regards, Bushrangers Committee.
