Social Mashup Bike Rides
[RESUMING SECOND WEEK JANUARY 2019]
Remember how it felt riding your bike as a 10 year old? You and your friends tearing around the streets, parks, and trails on some big adventure?

With unusually consistent showers over recent months, club volunteers really laboured to keep the course trimmed and the tracks clear for the event. The trails were certainly in prime condition on the day and the success of the event is a huge tribute to their efforts. Continue reading “2018 CQ XC Series big season opener”
