Reminder: 2017 Annual Membership Survey

Reminder: 2017 Annual Membership Survey
The data we are getting is great! Big thanks to those who have already completed it.

Hi Folks,

So far a third of you have completed the membership survey – this is fantastic and thank you. Who’d have guessed the president has been voted the best looking committee member. HOWEVER it would be awesome if we could get everyone to complete it as then it would be truly representative. So if you haven’t filled out the survey yet, please do so before the 1st of December, 5PM (that’s 2 weeks away).

It doesn’t matter if you’re a new member or haven’t been along on a ride – your input is always appreciated.

Don’t forget there’s a random prize draw for those who completed the survey and provided their details.

If you haven’t received the survey link or have deleted the email please let us know by emailing [email protected] or contacting us through social media or in person during a ride.

2017 Annual Membership Survey

2017 Annual Membership Survey
The data we are getting is great! Big thanks to those who have already completed it.

Hi Folks,

By now you will have received an email (or two, because one got caught in the interwebs for a day, sorry!). This email has a link to our 2017 membership survey for you to complete. The data we have received already has been particularly interesting so please keep it coming!

This survey is the most important thing we ask you to do because it helps the current and future committees to make informed decisions that represent the wishes of the membership.

The survey will be closed on the 1st December, 5PM.

You can expect questions in the following categories:

  • What trails do you like?
  • What rides/events do you you enjoy?
  • Ride start times
  • Club Systems
  • Fund Raising
  • Trail Development
  • General Feedback

Additionally there’s going to be a random prize draw afterwards as a bit of an added incentive to complete the survey.

Please encourage your fellow members to complete the survey and if you haven’t received the survey email, please let us know and we’ll get it out to you ASAP.



We have a new Away Ride Co-ordinator – Martijn (Marty) Mooij

We have a new Away Ride Co-ordinator – Martijn (Marty) Mooij
Welcome Marty!

Not confirmed yet but we think this is Marty searching for the best riding trails.

Marty has volunteered to organise the club’s away rides and camping trips (with the occasional assistance of his lovely partner Courtney). Marty and Courtney came to our last committee meeting for a meet and greet and we believe that with their talents and their enthusiasm they are going to be an awesome fit with the club.

Ben has whipped up the email address [email protected] so if you have any ideas or requests for away rides or camping trips then let Marty know.

On behalf of the club thanks for volunteering Marty, the club has always loved it’s camping trips so it will be good to get some more back onto the calendar.
