It seems like an eternity since local riders met up to groom the trails at Old Man Valley. Well, the opportunity it on again on 13/5.

There's a lot of vegetation growth and debris on the OMV trails atm. The budget is running thin and so we need riders to get in a help with the basic maintenance. This will allow Synergy to work on bits they need to finish.

This is the trackwork session you don't want to miss, one word....Lumley’s!

We have the last round of our Summer 4hr Series on Sunday the 19th and we would like to use this trail. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s the trail to the right part way in the climb out of Max's Bridge.

This trail hasn't been used for some time because of major erosion but we have plans to resurrect it, this is the biggest job we have attempted in a long time.
