Cystic Fibrosis Charity Race Day Update
We got riders, we got sun and we got hero dirt!

It’s ON!!

Put your racing legs on!

We’ve had a last minute rush of participants sign-on so everything is going ahead as planned! It’s going to be a good day with a good amount of riders, good weather and good beer (Paul also has a fire drum ready to go to keep us warm).

Times

  • Check-in opens at 7.30am. We will be there ready to sign you in and hand out the number plates so come out early to have a practice lap and get your bearings.
  • Race 1 (1hr) – starts at 8.30am
  • Race 2 (2hr) – starts at 10am-ish
  • Prizes and beer – 12 noon-ish (once the 2nd race has finished)

Food and drinks

We are putting on a free sausage sizzle and will have water and soft-drinks available. Trish might be baking some delicious sugar-coma causing cakes or slices too! There will be beers from Brouhaha Brewery available for a gold coin donation after the races.

Prizes

In addition to the prize for the winners, we have a heap of prizes donated by our sponsors which will go into a lucky draw so everyone has a chance to win. We will have a prize for other things as well such as best leap over Paul’s new jump feature “Little Rocketman“.

Parking and Spectators

Below is the map showing where to park and where to spectate. We don’t want cars along the side of driveway this time as it’s a bugger moving them all out and we need the space for overtaking.

Race Day Update – POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN

Race Day Update – POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN
Race day has been postponed folks

In a desperate attempt to stop the rain, last night I tried Grandma’s ye olde pagan MTB ritual at Parklands. Now obviously, as today’s weather indicates, I stuffed up. I went through and checked each step again and again and then I realised that the full moon is tonight!! IDIOT!! I can’t believe I made such a simple mistake! My hamstrings are killing me from all that twerking!

But long story short – the race day is postponed until things get dry again. Stay tuned!

PS: Sorry to that guy on a night ride and everyone watch out for a dead goat near Tazer trail.

Grandma’s Ye Olde pagan recipe cards are so handy

Race Day Update – Photos and Weather

Race Day Update – Photos and Weather
New date - see you on the 15/07/2018

Put your racing legs on!

Good morning folks!

So far Paul’s place has dodged any serious rain so things are still moving ahead on that front (LOL! – weather pun!). Paul will keep us up to date and we’ll see how things are later in the week.

Bushranger Peter Legge has generously offered to take the photos for us this time around. We will upload them after the race for you to grab for free. If you want to pay for a bigger picture to be printed (maybe for the ceiling above your bed or something) I’m sure Peter can help you out. Check out Peter’s work at http://www.instagram.com/peterleggephoto/

Registrations are still open at https://online.mtba.asn.au/ERegister.aspx?E=5669

Noosa Trail Master Plan – Survey!

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).
