Vote for us in the Mountain Bikes Direct “Dollars For Dirt” Funding Program

Vote for us in the Mountain Bikes Direct “Dollars For Dirt” Funding Program
Come help with trailcare!

We’re excited to announce that our club has been selected as a recipient of the Mountain Bikes Direct “Dollars For Dirt” Community Funding program.

We’re guaranteed to receive $150 from the program, but to secure the top grant ($300) we need your help!

Between the 1st and the 25th of this month, if you shop at Mountain Bikes Direct (www.mountainbikesdirect.com.au), you can cast your vote and help decide which of three selected groups should get the $300! You simply shop as normal, and at the order confirmation page (after you checkout) you will have the ability to cast your vote.

We’d love for you to spread the word and encourage people to put their vote towards our Club, so that we can secure as many votes as possible and hopefully score the top grant!

Thanks for your support,

I thought the Bushrangers should say a big hello and a “You go Girl” <bobs head and clicks fingers> to all our female riders – the smarterest and better looking of all the genders!

Thanks to the amazing efforts of Susie and the GoGirls there are more ladies in the club than ever and it’s truly great, because to borrow a line from the Jerry McGuire movie – “You complete me” (with “me” meaning the club, not me personally because I’ve already been completed by the lovely Kim – sorry ladies).

Interesting quotes:

“The bicycle is just as good company as most husbands and, when it gets old and shabby, a woman can dispose of it and get a new one without shocking the entire community.”
Ann Strong, Minneapolis Tribune, 1895
