Noosa Trail Master Plan – Survey!
Cooran - Kin Kin ride

Hi Folks,

Tourism Noosa, Noosa District & Landcare, Noosa Council’s Economic Development department and Common Ground Trails are working on a Noosa Trail Masterplan, funded by the Noosa Biosphere Reserve, to enhance the Noosa Trail Network experience for local and visiting bushwalkers, mountain bikers, horse riders and other users.

Common Ground Trails have created a survey that you can find HERE.

We encourage everyone to fill out the survey and to highlight any areas that need attention on the map.

Thanks for the heads up Brad!

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).

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.
