This one's for all the lurkers out there: a reminder that Grary has posted up a Social Ride for newcomers and intermediate level riders at Mt Annan this Sunday.
Check the calendar for more details:
Many thanks for organising Grary.
So don't be shy guys, click the "change to show you're in" link on the calendar entry above and get out there!
Racing often takes a bit of a back seat here. We're a community site, mainly here to have fun, but recognition of some sporting feats in the world of MTB really have to be congratulated.
Over the weekend Jason English became the Solo 24 Hour World Champion... for the 5th time! For much of the race Jason was out front but victory was sealed a couple of hours from the end when he put in a two blistering laps, destroying all hope of a catch the second place rider may have been holding onto. Boom!
Special mention to Brett Bellchambers too, for taking out the SS category.
There are many new recreational riders online here, so for those that don't know, this event works as so: Midday on Saturday one steps onto a MTB. They ride round a circuit (this year in Fort William, Scotland) until midday Sunday. Non-stop. Solo. The rider to finish the most laps in the shortest time before that Sunday cut-off wins. Yes - 24 hours without a break - Insane!
Just a quick note to say that this morning I've gone through and given the ride profiles section a well overdue clean up. A filter has also been added so you can focus on just a specific area.
All profiles now have to be entered with GPS data. This means they all get a map and altitude data to users can see exactly what's what before heading out. There are more plans afoot that this is required for - stay tuned!
As always, this is a community site and everyone is encouraged to share their favourite routes through local trails. If you can add some pictures and encouraging words then all the better.

IMBA will celebrate its eleventh-annual Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (#TKMBD) on Saturday, October 4, 2014. This is a great opportunity for you to share your passion for pedaling with kids!
Details here: https://www.imba.com/kids
Of course this isn't restricted to North America though. Why not arrange your own kids ride? Don't forget to post it up in the caldendar.
Do you want a purpose built bike park on the Northern Beaches - one that is dedicated Mountain Biking? A plan is proposed for such a facility at Belrose Waste Management Centre after it closes soon, but...
Help is needed to get this plan approved. Can you help by emailing the local councillors and expressing your views? Just something simple that explains you are behind the plan is all it would take.
The next council meeting is 27th May, so these emails need to find their target before that date. If you could attend the meeting to show support all the better.
The councillor's email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
