Winter times have commenced – rides now start at 7.30am

Winter times have commenced – rides now start at 7.30am
Winter Hours has started!

That’s right folks – winter is here! So go buy a fat bike with the studded tyres, shove an emergency husky in your camelbak and then practice urinating while wearing 4 layers of clothes OR …you can just not be a big sooky-la-la and harden up because this isn’t Siberia!

However we do delay the ride starts by 30min due to the lack of light and the scientifically proven increase in difficulty of crawling out of bed during winter.

So this weekend’s ride at Ewan Maddock Dam is a 7.30am start but get there 15 minutes early to prepare (and pick on the e-bikes etc).

Women’s Adventure Film Tour

Women’s Adventure Film Tour

A celebration of the fantastic women around us who are doing extraordinary things

The Women’s Adventure Film Tour features some of the world’s most inspiring women in adventure. This tour is a celebration of the fantastic women around us who are doing extraordinary things.  The films are to be enjoyed by women and men of all ages!

In a global first it was launched to a sell-out crowd in Sydney in May 2017.  We are pleased to be now taking the Women’s Adventure Film Tour around Australia. This is an extraordinary chance to come and experience a night of edge of your seat outdoor adventuring and story telling.

The film selection comes from the Mountainfilm festival in Telluride, Colorado.  Mountainfilm uses the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world. Launched in 1979, Mountainfilm is now one of the world’s most exciting documentary film festivals touring 5 continents and seen by more than 70,000 people.

The tour films feature an awesome mix of short films featuring skiing, mountain biking, trail running, mountaineering, rock climbing and cultural and environmental stories. This is an event to inspire you to take on the world and experience all it has to offer.

You can see the flicks at the Nambour Majestic Cinema on Wednesday, 16 May, 7pm.

Congratulations to Shelly – No 1 Wild West Series Rd 6

Congratulations to Shelly – No 1 Wild West Series Rd 6

Congratulations to Shelly for her podium at the Wild West XCO series round 6 at Wooloon! She’s been training hard and racing well and she may have had a doubt we certainly didn’t.

The Walloon course is tight and twisty with obstacles and long gradual descents and climbs, it’s hard to go fast and you have to time the overtaking to make best use of the short sprints.

Organised by JR’s Gym and Bike the Wild West XCO series consists of 6 rounds over the summer, west of Brisbane. For more information checkout the series’ Facebook Page.
