Club to host event in rider’s mem­ory

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Sport -

The Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club will host a me­mo­rial moun­tain bike ride for Matt Pen­ning­ton through the Kar­ratha Hills this week­end as part of their sum­mer se­ries.

The ride will start at 5.30pm on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 7, with sign-on from 4.30pm.

It will con­sist of a 4.6km course, start­ing from Hid­den Val­ley and fol­low­ing signs from The Ranges, the same course rid­den by Mr Pen­ning­ton the last time he rode.

Mr Pen­ning­ton had taken to moun­tain bik­ing re­cently and went out on reg­u­lar rides with club mem­bers.

He and Lawrence Smith died last month when their boat hit rocks at Mawby Is­land in the Dampier Ar­chi­pel­ago.

The pair had only met re­cently through a mu­tual friend and shared a pas­sion for spearfish­ing.

The sum­mer se­ries events are based around rid­ing as many laps of a set course as you can in an hour.
