Isis Town and Country - - Sport - By JODIE DIXON

THE Isis Dirt Bike Club is ex­cited and look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a safe place to ride.

Club pres­i­dent Damien Tarda was thrilled when the club was granted land, post­ing it on so­cial media.

“We have fi­nally got the land for the bike club at aero­drome, ” Tarda said.

“The land and tracks need a lot of work to be done be­fore we can use them.”

The 50 acres on Aero­drome Rd was pre­vi­ously used as a dirt bike track in the 1980s.

Since then the land has be­come over­grown and the tracks are in des­per­ate need of re­pairs.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil has been sup­port­ing the club, its mem­bers and work­ing with the com­mu­nity to get the tracks back into op­er­a­tion.

“I would re­ally like com­mu­nity sup­port and help to get the dirt bike tracks open and safe,” Tarda said.

“I want Childers to be as ex­cited as I am when it comes to re­build­ing the land.

“The club are ask­ing for as­sis­tance to help clear and re­build the kids’ flat track, the scrub track and the en­durance track for the riders.”

Tarda and the mem­bers are look­ing to the Childers com­mu­nity for vol­un­teers and equip­ment for the re­build.

“The club will be ar­rang­ing work­ing bees to start clear­ing, as there is a lot of work that needs to be done,” he said.

“We need heavy ma­chin­ery and skilled trades to help clear the land.

“Our com­mu­nity will like what we have planned for the site and we hope oth­ers will join our pas­sion for dirt bikes

“We are also en­cour­ag­ing fam­i­lies to join up as mem­bers and to sup­port our club.

“Our goal is to get the track in ac­tion.

“It will take time and we hope with the sup­port of the com­mu­nity we will be in ac­tion sooner rather than later.”
