What no rides!? Sad
Upcoming social/group training rides would normally appear here, but things are a little quiet at the moment and it's empty.

Don't be shy - this is a community site so if you're heading out and would like some company, post your ride.

XC 19th June - Cancelled

We have made an early call - based on the rain so far this morning out near the track, and the forecast rain for tomorrow, we have decided to cancel tomorrow's XC race at Awaba.

Apologies to those who disagree with this decision, but we felt it best to make an early call .

Wednesday Night Races at Killi

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Note: The road in to Killi is pretty bad at the moment. You can drive it in a 4WD, but if you are in a car, we would recommend you park out on the road and ride your bike in. (Leave yourself some extra time to ride in).

Keep an eye on the club website – if we have any rain between now and Wednesday afternoon, we might change the race to Awaba instead of Killingworth.

HMBA XC Race 1 and AGM - 17/1/16 - Cancelled due to Wet

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

An XC track inspection has been carried out this morning at Awaba, and the track is just too wet to ride on. Therefore, the XC event for 17/1/16 has been cancelled. This includes both the race and the AGM.

It will probably be still too wet to move it to the following weekend, so we are not planning on doing that at this stage. Keep an eye on the website for further information.
