A Beautiful day for a ride at Awaba!

Thanks to all the helpers that made it possible especially Jason who did the computer timing and the St John ladies who recorded the rider numbers as they came through.

Also, big thanks to all the helpers who worked on the track to allow us to use the tunnel track in two directions.

It was nice to see a number of new faces, especially the young guys who did so well in D grade.

Don't forget to get your jersey or bib-knick order in - it closes Friday 26th May. Go to https://www.looneyparrot.com/product-category/hmbc/

HMBA – Build Day this Thursday afternoon. 16/2/2017

We desperately need some helpers to dig in some track leading into the new tunnel. We need to put this in before the Rocky Trail 24 hour race this weekend. Our club receives substantial financial benefit from hosting these races, so we need some help please.
When: Thursday 16th February, from 4pm onwards. Get there when you can, even if it’s not till 6pm. Every little bit helps.
Where: Awaba. Near the tunnel – walk up from the finish of the downhill track.
