New Jerseys are coming! ….very slowly

New Jerseys are coming! ….very slowly
Latest jersey concepts

Hey everyone,

Yeah I know the jerseys have been on the cards for ages but trying to find someone to make them has been a bugger of a chore. However I think I’ve found someone to do all the jersey/shirt/singlet iterations we need at a good price.

I’ve been talking to others in the club and doing a lot of research on jersey styles and shapes so the artwork has gone through a lot of changes. To give you an idea of the journey I’ve had, the filenames are like “BRMTB-Jersey-2016-idea-19-v7-FINAL-v3-LAST FINAL-v2.pdf“. Which shows a very poor file management system that I really need to work on.

So anyway, we are going to offer the following:

  • Standard XC cycle jerseys (short/long sleeve and club/race fit) in two styles – “Spare parts” and “Black diamond”
  • Bib-shorts – Black with logo and matching artwork
  • Trail shirts (loose fit v-neck with short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves and long sleeves) in the two styles – “Spare parts” and “Black diamond”
  • Women’s Go-Girl Singlets  – in “GoGirl Pink”
  • Socks

There are artwork samples below but I’ll put up the final artwork along with prices and the order link in the next few days.

Stay Tuned!

Go GIRL Jinker Trails Summary

Go GIRL Jinker Trails Summary

GoGIRL linked with Nicci Orr and the Brisbane girls for a ride around the Jinker Trails at Bunyaville. We started off at a slower pace than usual from James Drysdale Recreation Park with 15 ladies and picked up Solo Heather on the way (Turns out she raced with me back in the day, small world hey). Kathy and Janine, a couple of local girls joined us too. They were new to the sport so we adapted the speed to suit them giving them riding tips on the way. We began with Wayne’s World which flowed onto WW: new and improved and that is what we found. All the trails were tweaked and were even more fun than the last time. After climbing into Mini Van, we Zigzagged along Dugandan Road to The Jinker Tack via 10 and 1. The climbing and techy sections proved a bit of a challenge to our new riders. They had fun but were a bit puffed.  So at this point they opted to end their ride close to the carpark but promised to join us again soon already making plans with the local girls to join them the next day.

After saying goodbye we went Creekside and took the Original Creek Track. We picked up the pace and were Flickn Sticks to number 6. There was no Carnage on Kokoda but I Love that Hill, it’s only Short Hill. We did the whole Dam Loop in record time mastering The Steps where we stopped to hone our skills. A Policeman checked out our Dirt Racers. Nicci showed us how to jump, it was Jinker Magic. A Froot Loopin time was had by all. Why not join us on our next Mystery tour. Check out our face book page for more details.

Until next time,

Have fun on the trails,

2017 Bushrangers MTB Club AGM Summary

Bush Rangers MTB Club 2017 AGM

We really need better models

The Maroochy Botanical Gardens was beautiful as always and it’s always a great place to have meetings. The rain held off but the humidity still came to the party but despite the mugginess the meeting was well attended and went pretty well (considering the dodgy secretary didn’t know what he had to do). Ben, Susie and Craig let us all know what was happening with the club, GoGirls and the money and there were some good ideas introduced by the members that are going to be researched then instigated ASAP.

We’ve filled the 10 positions for the upcoming coaching clinic so we can have some more MTBA qualified coaches in our ranks. I’ll also look into getting group rates for first aid certificates so I’ll let everyone know about that (just in case Carol crashes again).
