MOUN­TAIN BIK­ING

A GREAT field of 40 rid­ers gath­ered at Brandy Creek for the Whit­sun­day Moun­tain Bike Club’s open day.

All rid­ers were given the op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore the trails, find out in­for­ma­tion about the club and en­joyed a free bar­beque.

To the de­light of all in at­ten­dance, the weather re­mained clear for the af­ter­noon.

The morn­ings’ show­ers left the track in a muddy state but all rid­ers had fun, re­turn­ing with big smiles on their faces and splat­tered from head-to­toe in mud.

The guided tour rides were a big hit with those new to the club com­ment­ing on the beauty of the Brandy Creek trails.

Ride Whit­sun­days joined the event and sup­plied 20 bi­cy­cles for rid­ers to test out on the day in­clud­ing some equipped with the lat­est elec­tronic sus­pen­sion tech­nol­ogy which was a real high­light for all.

With the moun­tain bike sea­son now in full swing, the cal­en­dar boats events for beginners and ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers.

Next weekend the Whit­sun­day Moun­tain Bike Club will be off to South Molle Is­land.
