Full Zip Jerseys - $90
Elite Bib Knicks - $140
Elite Knick Shorts - $125
Elite Skinsuit - $165 (for the CX freaks and track riders)

PMBC riders dominant at Pemberton Classic road race

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

While many of you spent the weekend in Northcliffe racing the Karri Cup, a handful of Perth MTB Club riders took on the Pemberton Classic Road Race. The Saturday afternoon Crit up and down the main st of Pemberton had a good crowd and great atmosphere for all those riding. The tight and technical nature of the course lent itself well to the skills of the mountain bikers who were able to use the corners to their advantage.

I received this Email from Bicycles for Humanity last night. Please help out if you can. A bicycle that you dont want any more may completely change someone's life in Africa.

If you dont have a spare bike to give, but enjoy working on bikes as a hobby, perhaps you can contribute to fixing some before they go on the boat.



I would like to introduce you to Bicycles for Humanity, one of Perth’s newest volunteer organisations, and being absolutely upfront, ask the Perth Mountain Bike Club to partner with us.
