Accomodation (for Coffs)

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I was hoping for some pretty lady to invite me to stay at her luxury villa with pay TV, jecuzzi and reverse cycle air con. But the more I think about that, the more I think I shouldn't hold my breath. Possibly it may be smart to organise a fall back plan.

Dirtworks Post-mortem

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

A very satisfying (for the most part) and somewhat eventful weekend at the Dirtworks. Plenty fun I think, although personally, I'd rather not experience this again (which is no-one's fault but my own).

My MB profile is here:

http://trail.motionbased.com/trail/activity/2662125

If you have a profile or time and want to share please do - I'll slap a table up, we had some cracking times so well done all!

For me, as I say on MB, "First 50 looking good, around 70Ks beginning to falter, last 20Ks - pure hell! Didn't eat/drink enough to keep the early pace going. Doh!"

Dirtworks camping

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I'll be camping at the 'works and it sure would be noice if we could rustle up a posse roun the camp-fire to eat beans and tell tall tales.

Any ol timers been an' done this previous like, send a smoke signal 'bout the wagon train arrangements (ie. if there's any chance of getting close camping spots and when you have to turn up to do so etc.)

WWS round 3 (8hr) 15th April - Anyone doing this?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

By the sounds of it round two was a mudwrestle... Is anyone going for round 3 and fancy either teaming up or just meeting up for it? I've not done an 8-hr before but I'm pretty keen to give it a go.

Here's the link: http://www.brightorangeevents.com/

Ta,

Careflight Classic Anyone?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I was talking with a friend about last weekend's speed run down The Oaks and he suggested we might like to do the Careflight Woodford to Glenbrook Classic.

Now - in the past I've said, "Bloody hell - $35 to ride down a trail I can do anytime!". But, since then have attended a few events and realise that the fun of the day is something not to be missed. I've also seen people flown off even fire trail - and anyone that saw Sunday's 60 Minutes story about Boy Wonder will realise what a critical role choppers funded by these sorts of events play.

The actual route is from Woodford station to Euroka near Glenbrook, and it's scheduled for Sunday June 24.

Anyone want to make a team (no limit on numbers, first two home decide the team time)? Or just go solo?

Entry forms are here for those who are tempted.

After having a SHITE day yesterday ( http://nobmob.com/node/1426#comment-2770 ) I had a REALLY GRRRREAT day today.
Cyclinic with Paul Rowney and Rob Eva, really cool. Too tired to write too much now, but, I can only recommend it. Well worth the money, and the blokes are really nice.

And i did it on my girlfriends 16kg old bike. Drift awaaaaaaaay!

Port 12 hr enduro

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

For those who are interested, a tribe of us has returned form a successful venture to the Port 12 hr enduro. What an amazing event, we definetly have some goals to achieve now. An absolutley perfect track with everything in it. 8+ ks long but realistically rideable by any standard. We will be planning a day trip sometime in the future, will keep you posted on that one. Results are up at http://12hr.hvmtbr.com/

The 4 boys from Rainbow Cycles did a four man team and smashed it. If they didn't break a chain, which reflected in their lap 9 split time of 36+ minutes, they would have won their division. Rowan from Bob Wallis had some painfull night issues but after a nice 2hr+ nap, woke up firing and raced solidly to finish high in the solo placing's of 8th overall. Terry Bernut from Corindi, had a great start before snapping a hanger and unfortunately couldn't find a spare anywhere. My brother, Michael Hawke, started his second ever race in the solo division on a loan bike which he had never ridden before and rode in hiking boots before he hit the pre-dawn wall and like Rowan had a nice little sleep. Like Rowan he awoke with flair and gusto and punched out some nice laps. He tired around smoko and decided to share his bike with Terry so they could both post a finish time and enjoy the awesome track.

So the Sydney 24 Hour for 2007 has finally been announced:

http://www.brightorangeevents.com/BOE_24_Main.htm

I've done this race for the last two years (once in a team of six, once solo) and am eager to go again - but not as a solo!

Does anyone want to get a team together? I don't intend to be super-competitive - just go out and have some fun.

MWMBT Race Day- St Ives 23-12-06

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Matt and I turned up for one of the Manly Warringah Mountain Bike Club race meetings, this one at St Ives. This was a great afternoon and something NoBMoB should join more often.

Matt and I both signed on as Group C. I was well placed in this group as I finished last in both our races. You know I couldn’t believe these guys didn’t stop every 100 metres or so for me to catch up, bastards.

Guess who was the stand out winner in both our races? yes it was steroids Matt. I told you all I was right.

Jokes aside Matt really kicked ass, so much so that he has been up graded to B division. I recon he would give the A's a run for their money!

Urban Polaris anyone?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

It appears that there is not nearly enough discussion about the Urban Polaris this coming weekend. Is anyone else going along?
Its really a great fun event so if you have the weekend free you should look into it.

Short Track Racing

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

So there's a few of you racing (riding?) the Highland Fling, but for those that think that 100km is a bit to far (or those whose legs are still spinning after the Fling) there's short track racing at St Ives Showground the following weekend. See www.mwmtb.com for more details.

Even if you're not racing it's worth while to come & have a look with virtually the whole track visible from a view spectator spots and the action will be very fast and furious.

PS If you pass a guy on what looks like a road bike with only one gear at the Fling say hello!

Bikes come to the streets, tracks, forests and parks of Canberra in Australia's biggest one day MTB navigation event. Its fun, it's different and it's a great way to plan a route around the nation's capital on two wheels.

Check it out at the Wild Horizons Urban Polaris home page

Interested? Post here. Looking for a partner? Post here. Well worth doing and a great intro to this type of event, loads of fun.

I can't see there is a team of teams entry category this year - but if there is make sure you put in NoBMob!

Highland Fling NoBMoB Group Attendance

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Hi All,

With only 4 weeks to go I for one have been quite slack.

I’m yet to enter or book accommodation.

Can all those either booked or about to let each other know what their doing, both distance and accommodation?
We are a group after all Smiling

Last year we stayed at the Bundanoon Hotel but it was a bit noisy at our end of the pub, but the hot shower after was nice.
Christine suggested tents, which I'm ok with as it was across the road from the event.

Let's get a group list going.

I’m not back riding until the first week of Nov. Good training I know. (Bloody Social Calendar)

Hi all,

Received this today - might be of interest to some members - in support of a NSW charity.

Northcott Disability Services, an organisation that supports children and adults with disabilities across NSW has officially announced its Vietnam Cycling Challenge for 2007.

The Vietnam Cycle Challenge is the adventure of a lifetime starting in Ho Chi Minh City and finishing in Hanoi. In just two weeks participants will experience remote rural villages, stunning coastlines and the ancient tombs of the Nguyen dynasty all by mountain bike.

The challenge allows participants to experience Vietnam over two weeks for around $70 a day says Northcott Fundraising Manager Judy Lewis.

C'mon MTBikers, time to show your skills!
Come and enjoy a day out with some mates and participate in the 2nd AROC Adventure Race of the season at Narrabeen Lake. Adventure Racing combines orienteering on foot, kayak and most importantly, MTB, for some good times and team work.
You will be out there between 2.5 and 5.5 hours according to how fast your team can navigate around the course. You will ride, run, paddle and maybe even swim in multiple short stages with estimated maximum distances being: Paddle 4km / Run 10km / Bike 20km.
Teams are made up of 3 people who complete the course together (sorry, no relay!). You can enter as a mixed, male or female team.

Angkor Wat Bike Tour

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Dear NobMob,

Join bike advocates for the first Angkor Wat Bike Tour and win a free trip to Cambodia!

Bikers from all over the world will gather to experience the stunning Angkor Wat ancient temple ruins while supporting Village Focus International (www.villagefocus.org), a non-governmental organization working in Southeast Asia. I hope your group's members will consider attending. The participant who raises the most sponsorships will win a round-trip ticket to the event.

The 80 km course will give participants a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the temples as they once were, free of the traffic of the 750,000 tourists who now visit annually. Participants can expect to be joined only by the locals living in the forests around the temples, who will be cheering the bikers along.

Highland Fling

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hello!
One of my friends said he is doing the Highland Fling in November...now, whilst I have no intention of riding 100ks I was wondering if anyone had been down or was going down - I believe they also have a 50k ride and thought I might go down and suss that out for trying it next year...however, I haven't heard of it before - any inside information would be great!
Thank you!

MEEE
