We just wanted to let you know that the changeover is going well and looks like all positions are going to be filled. The agenda and location is still to be confirmed but we’ll let you know more details ASAP.
People interested volunteering for official duties please contact Emma on [email protected] before the 24th March.
So this is my last ride summary as the club secretary and I have to say, I may actually miss having this avenue to publicly tell my dumb jokes, bag my brother and drop the occasional passive aggressive bomb <sigh>… But that doesn’t matter now because this weekend I will hand over the official book of mountain bike lingo – 101 Words for Dirt – and then someone else can have the pleasure of publicly humiliating our club members with these summaries.
We arrived in Pomona early in the morning and the little town was just waking up. The weather was still and cool despite the earlier cyclone warnings of torrential floods and 160kph ducks and lawn furniture flying about.
We had some new, some nearly new and some not-so-new riders come along with us. Big hello to Jani and Orlando who came riding with us for the first time. I hope everyone enjoyed the ride.
Highlights of the ride were:
Sticks and lots of fallen trees.
I got to ride Kerry’s new e-bike.
Ben deciding to not use his GPS and then he took the wrong turn 300m into the ride (LOL!)
Roger decided to go down that rough descent near Fergusons road on his head (but he was OK).
A dead rabbit on Jampot Creek Road that really really stunk and Ben stopped us near it on the way back as we regrouped.
Free coffee and a citrus tart
That will do I guess. Check out the pictures and I hope to see you at the AGM this Saturday.
By now you will have received an email. This email has a link to our 2018 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 17th Feb, 5PM.
You can expect questions in the following categories:
What trails do you like?
What rides/events do you you enjoy?
Ride start times
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.
