Mt Cotton – MTB Trails Draft Concept

Mt Cotton – MTB Trails Draft Concept

Hi Folks,

Another draft plan to comment on. The Redland Bay City Council are have concept for trail development within the Mt Cotton Eastern Escarpment Reserve. This is the area surrounding the Karingal Scout Camp which has it’s own set of trails that have been used for races and other MTB events in the past.

This is part of a larger vision to develop the trail networks surrounding Mount Cotton which also include Daisy Hill, Cornubia, and Bayview.

The proposed trails are designated ‘downhill’ which will add to the mix of trails in the area.

More information and a link to the survey can be found here:

Note that you need to register an account to complete the survey.

National Volunteers Week 2017

National Volunteers Week 2017

The Bushrangers simply would not exist today if it wasn’t for the contributions made by the many volunteers over the years. We rely upon volunteers to serve on our club committees, lead rides, coach, advocate, run races, help with social events, and build and maintain the trails we love.

The club also depends on other volunteer organisations such as Suncoast Community Legal Service and Connecting Up for free or low cost services. Also those who volunteer their assets like land, BBQs, tools, skills and knowledge.

Please join us in thanking all of the volunteers who have helped the club become what it is today as part of National Volunteer Week.

Thank you

Ben Johns
Club President
