MTBA Members Vote to Amalgamate with AusCycling

by Adam 0 Comments

If you didn’t know, the MTBA was looking to amalgamate with AusCycling – a new organisation set up to consolidate all sporting discipline to the one single entity.

Mountain biking, cycling and bmx will be covered with the one membership.

On 30 November 89% of members voted in support of the change. You can read about it over here on the MTBA website.

It is expected to bring a raft of benefits – consolidating insurance and for those that participate in multiple disciplines, then you’ll only need one membership.

Don’t expect to see anything immediate, except our club jerseys will have a new logo so keep an eye out for a promo coming soon for a cheap one 🙂

In the meantime, keep riding!

Launching Summer at Wooroi – with new ride time and a new President!

by Adam 0 Comments

What a turn-out, with 22 at Wooroi for the first ride of the summer.  

The earlier start time (trialling 6.30am for summer) didn’t seem to worry anyone, although Linden did seem a bit rough early – bad bottle apparently (could have happened to anyone!)…

John “the only dude who woo-hooo’s on the flat trails” Searston took off with the fast-ish group.

And after zig-zagging up, down and through Wooroi, he went rogue and took us over through the forest and up the Demoraliser track.  Straight up the steepest hill within cooee on a fire road. And demoralise us it did, although Miles “mono” Porteous (aka The President) wasn’t fazed as he pulled off this manoeuvre at the top…

The forest out here really is beautiful and worth a visit, with a few very gnarly and steep down trails it was great fun.

Toby lead the rest of us to enjoy the great trails Wooroi offers.

Riding bloodwood proved a challenge for our newest member with a technical issue which unfortunately could not be resolved.

While some enjoyed the challenges of a daydream, a couple of us ensured Therese made it safely back to her car.

The rest of us had a bible session (see below, very exciting).

We then took off for a coffee and a chat at Doonan feeling enlightened.
