Club round on the 22nd August

Hey all

Due to family, work commitments neither me or Skinny is available to run this round so I'm hoping someone is willing to stick up their hand to run it.

Timing is pretty basic and if it's not 100% spot on it doesn't really matter.

So if there are any volunteers let me know and we will go through whats needed. If not we'll have to cancel.

Friday Afternoon social/training rides

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Stappo is hoping to get a regular crew together for Training rides of a Friday afternoon. Meeting at the workmans club car park at 4pm

Riders of all abilities are welcome and there is a few beginners in the group already

The plan is to head out and up the drift.

It's an out and back ride and the first 5km is definately the hardest as the drift is a big challenge.
So beginners can turn back at any time while the more experienced guys push on

$30K Grant awarded to help build new DH

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

The Central Tablelands Mountain bike club is set to receive over $30 000 under the NSW sport and recreation facilities program

The money is to go towards the approval and construction of a new Mountain bike trail off Hassans walls into the lease held by Lithgow Pony Club in Sheedies gully.

This is great news, I'd actually thought we missed out as the announcement was delayed due to the sheer number of quality applications. The fact that we were successful shows that the State Government does take mountain biking serious as a sport"

Old bathurst rd final report to Council

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hey all it's been 3 months since Blue Mt councilors chose to go against the Council recommendation of formalising the Old Bathurst Rd DH track and have them shut down instead.

In that meeting councilors promised to conduct a new study into alternative locations with in 3 months.

A report is due to go back to council at the next meeting. We're expecting it to back up the finding of the original report, ie that Old Bat was the most suitable place for DH trails.

Anyway, one of the problems we had when it first went to council was that just 9 riders turned up to the meeting.

Lidsdale Logging latest info

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Just got this in my inbox

Hi Craig

This is just a heads up that the Lidsdale Forest (north of the Highway), is earmarked for harvesting in early Autumn in 2011.

While this does not affect your events planned this year, after Easter next year, there will be no activities or events approved in this area due to

Forestry Operations.

Hopefully, this lead time will allow you to identify some other potential sites. As a suggestion, if you able, there are large AO maps of each Forest available for purchase

8hr entries are open

Hey all the course I want to use is this one

it gives us about 10km

A little bit of work needs to be done as there are a couple of tree down across the track.
The climb up beside the fire rd to get to the northern fire trail needs a rake as does a few other bits.

IF anyone has time to get out there and just give it a bit of love please do. My weekends are tied up but I plan to spend a couple of afternoons or early mornings out there

Hi gang a couple of things on the go at the mo

1. 8hr Entries for the SRAM Singletrack Mind Series are NOW OPEN!

http://www.chocolatefoot.com.au/singletrack-mind...

Fi and Joe came up and got a bit of promo footage at the twilight on Tuesday (again I apologise to the DH crew for pulling timed run with out notice but if this goes off well it should be a good little earner for our club and funds generated will go away towards finalising the new DH trail)
