Mountain bike riders explore Brandy Creek trails for open day
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.
