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.

Downhill Track Section Closed "Scorpion Gap"

PLEASE TAKE CAUTION DOWNHILL TRACK!
“SCORPION GAP Check point A”
LOOK BEFORE YOU JUMP!
We have had a report that over the weekend the timbers on the Scorpion gap jump have been broken. (Top of Track near Road).
The track has also had a barricade put up to stop riders from jumping the gap, We believe it is at the jump which can be to late if you come riding down at full pace unaware.
We will endeavor to get out there as soon as possible to fix the timber lander..
Or if there is anybody willing to go out and Fix the Timbers. Pls contact Coleen Or Rick
