Thursday Coffee Shop

The word is out.  Tomorrow's Thursday Shop ride is a coffee coup....   There is a debate if the ride will go STRAIGHT to the coffee shop OR go the length of Kirkwood first - Mr Anderson, we need your vote on this one.

Banana Man I hope you were at the shop to collect your bike this morning... it's no fun running on your own.

Sunvalley shops 4:45am.

The Trail Fundraiser

In Rotorua - MTB Heaven on Earth - the MTB Club have come up with the novel idea of a MTB Undie Run to raise funds to build more tracks (true story).

I'm sure this is something we could get going at the Saturday Afternoon Jam sessions or even the Dirty Rats ride on a Sunday morning...... So who's up for it??
