I'm sorry to be among those making the trip to the Fling this weekend, but for those who aren't:

Old Man's Valley Bike & Film Festival - THIS Saturday

Well we are into the last week before the festival. The trails have been groomed (thanks to the volunteers) and the new link is in. So it will be a great fun course. This is our chance to show the land managers that cycling is popular and we need facilities like this to stay. We are on the eave of the fate of these trails with Northconnex moving in next year. Will they get relocated? Will crossings be built? Well we understand its all up in the air.....

So please, help spread the word and come along to demo a bike, race or watch. register online or on the day (rego opens at midday). And, if you cannot come during the day then come along to the cinema under the stars and enjoy a drink with good company as we watch one of the best outdoor adventure films in recent years.

Race courses can be found at the following:
