Riders hit sum­mer fun trail

Pilbara News - - Sport - Amanda Ewin

While many of us find an ex­cuse not to ex­er­cise out­doors in the Pil­bara sum­mer, a large num­ber of mem­bers of the Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club are still tak­ing to trails on the Kar­ratha hills for fit­ness and fun.

Once a month through­out sum­mer, the BMBC mem­bers meet to ride a set course of about 5km for up to an hour as part of a Sum­mer Se­ries com­pe­ti­tion.

The ride in­volves each rider choos­ing how long and how fast they want to ride, with the aim of hav­ing plenty of fun with no time com­po­nent or pres­sure.

In last month’s event, a bunch of in­trepid riders blazed through a trop­i­cal thun­der­storm that ap­peared from nowhere.

How­ever, de­spite the wind and rain, they were still smil­ing as they crossed the fin­ish line and en­joyed so­cial­is­ing af­ter the event once the rain had stopped.

There is still time to dust off your bike and join the Bur­rup Moun­tain Bike Club riders for the last Sum­mer Se­ries ride of the sea­son on Sun­day, March 5 at 5.30pm.
