“Rookie Road” Wins

“Rookie Road” Wins
"Rookie Road" wins the vote

We received 50 votes and the clear winner was “Rookie Road”. “Pigtails” came close but couldn’t beat it (even after someone cheated and voted for it numerous times – tsk tsk!).

Clear winner is “Rookie Road”

QPWS have a naming policy (e.g. not potentially offensive, rude, gross, clear english etc). That’s why the cool names like “4play”, “entrails” and “Thrillz 2 Skillz” didn’t get a shoe in. But we are getting new trails and a lot of help so I’m not complaining.


New Jerseys are coming! ….very slowly

Latest jersey concepts

Hey everyone,

Yeah I know the jerseys have been on the cards for ages but trying to find someone to make them has been a bugger of a chore. However I think I’ve found someone to do all the jersey/shirt/singlet iterations we need at a good price.

I’ve been talking to others in the club and doing a lot of research on jersey styles and shapes so the artwork has gone through a lot of changes. To give you an idea of the journey I’ve had, the filenames are like “BRMTB-Jersey-2016-idea-19-v7-FINAL-v3-LAST FINAL-v2.pdf“. Which shows a very poor file management system that I really need to work on.

So anyway, we are going to offer the following:

  • Standard XC cycle jerseys (short/long sleeve and club/race fit) in two styles – “Spare parts” and “Black diamond”
  • Bib-shorts – Black with logo and matching artwork
  • Trail shirts (loose fit v-neck with short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves and long sleeves) in the two styles – “Spare parts” and “Black diamond”
  • Women’s Go-Girl Singlets  – in “GoGirl Pink”
  • Socks

There are artwork samples below but I’ll put up the final artwork along with prices and the order link in the next few days.

Stay Tuned!

Give a tax deductible donation to mountain biking this year

Hello everyone,

It’s almost the end of the financial year so it’s a great time to make a tax deductible donation to the club through the Australian Sporting Foundation. We can use the money for things like more BBQs and social events, races, more training clinics and most importantly it will help pay for materials and the maintenance and hire of equipment for our trail building work.

So if you, or a business you know, wants to make a donation get it in before the end of the month. It will be most appreciated and will go straight into the local mountain bike community!

All tax deductible donations are made online through the Australian Sports Foundation here:

Stay Safe, Keep Riding!


Our Club Crosses a Milestone Today

Our Club Crosses a Milestone Today

Thanks to all our members, supporters and sponsors.

Today is an important day and not because it’s the day that the Betamax video cassette was introduced in 1975 or Louis XIV was crowned king of France in 1654. While indeed those events are important, today is special for another reason.

Using MTBA data and earlier pre-digital membership lists (carved onto bits of stone etc), we can see that with the current strong growth in memberships our club is now officially bigger than it has ever been.

Not only does this show we are a healthy club that ticks the right boxes for our members but it proves that mountain biking is definitely alive and well in the Sunshine Coast.

Thanks to all our members, supporters and sponsors over the years. We couldn’t of done it without you!
