On Saturday the 02/12/2017 we will be having our end of year BBQ at Paul Vandeleur’s house in Dulong (behind Nambour). Paul has been busy making some impressive trails on his property so we’ll take the opportunity to ride them and organise an informal time-trial event for anyone who is keen.
Time: 3:00pm 2nd December (Saturday) 2017
Where: Paul’s House at 32 Ruwoldts Road, Dulong, Queensland
What to bring: Bike, sunscreen, chairs and drinks (any fancy food or nibblies you would like extra to the snags).
Club will provide sausages, meat patties, condiments, bread, soft drink, salads and sweets.
Note: If you plan to ride on the day please read and accept the MTB Rules and Liability Release form on the above link. If you are bringing along others who are not club members/MTBA affiliated and they wish to ride on the day please have them complete this form separately with the MTB Rules and Liability Release form completed.
It’s the mid-way point so I’ve just sat down with my Casio electric Abacus-o-matic and tallied up the total kilometres!
The rider with the most kilometres is Pete Bigaila. He is punching out over 600km each week. He is off to the 9-hour GBOMB race at Grafton this weekend so good luck Pete!
Graham Reeks is regularly commuting 60km to and from work so his weekly kilometres are up to over 200+ a week (and that’s with a big air resisting moustache on the handlebars). Graham is also our biggest fundraiser with $480 donated to Movember, nice work!
Paul Vandeleur had a massive ride in the first week but took it easy the 2nd week to prepare for the Singlespeed World Champs in NZ. Him and Royce have already left to participate in the shinanaghans over in Rotorua. Let us know how it goes guys.
Andrew is still recovering after his bike seat fell off
Andrew Head is exploring the hell out of Tasmania and getting a heap of kilometres in the kitty (and he’s grown an awesome Mario moustache).
Brad Wightman is doing a good 180+km and plenty of metres in elevation each week cruising around the hinterland.
Mike Bushnell, Marty Gatehouse, Graham Lloyd-Jones, John Lambert, Ben Johns, Ian (Toby) Reavely, John Searston and myself are punching out a steady 100+km per week.
Lumir Kalbac has had a 500% increase in kilometres in his 2nd week so I can only assume assassins are after him and he has to keep on the move.
Ruth and Troy Huckstepp did the Noosa Triathon last week and have got a few MTB rides in too.
Kathy Davis is back from injury and doing 50+km each week along with Geoff from Hit Bikes Coaching.
That leaves JT, Craig Pearson, Maverick Q and Dean from Hit Bikes doing a good 30-50km a week.
As of this morning we have 25 riders in the Strava group and we have ridden 5683.2km and raised $1354. Not bad at all! Not bad at all!
Help us ride 10000km and raise money for Movember (sculpturing some artistic whiskers is awesome too, but totally optional).
Follow these 3 steps and you’re off and racing!
Step 1: Put some skin in the game and donate to the Movember team page right here (feel free to join the Movember team too) Step 2: Once you’ve donated, sign up to the Strava club right here Step 3: Ride!
In addition to the regular club rides we’ll have events like an endurance ride, a time trial event and a big BBQ bash at the end of the month.
We will see who does the most distance, who raises the most money and who has the best moustache/beard/body hair etc.
