Once again we will be running a social ride next weekend leaving from the Camel Farm at 9am.

Each group will have 2 ride leaders to show you the trails and make sure everyone sticks together.

The Camel Farm is located here

Please remember to bring something to eat, something to drink, all the relevant spares and a good attitude.

Pea Gravel - Issue 3

Hi everyone, I've finally gotten around to finishing off the latest edition of Pea Gravel. In the latest issue you'll find a few stories about the Pemberton weekend, some excellent photography, a travel story and the latest news from the desk of yours truly, El Pres.

I'm hoping to be a bit less tardy on the next issue, and would love your help. If someone would like to write about the 6 hour and the next round of the XC series at the goat farm, that'd be awesome.

Thanks,
Greg

PMBC to spend $8000 on the GOAT FARM

Over the next couple of months you will notice some big improvements for the Goat Farm.

Jamie Campbell is building a skills section to the east of the shelter with funding from a lotteries west grant.

Paul Neve will be be helping Jamie with some of this project and building some awesome dirt jumps as part of the skills section.

On top of that, PMBC are spending $8000 of our club money on the GF itself.

This will be divided into 4 amounts. the first being $1000 for planting trees. $4500 for XC trails, DH and 4X maintenance stage 1. $1500 for trail maintenance stage 2. and $1000 up our sleave to re-prioritize at the end of the project.

This $1000 may go into planting trees, more maintenance, a pump track or the skills section. Either way, it will be spent on the GF.

This project has been about 8 months in the planning and the committee of PMBC are proud to be seeing it through.

Keep your eyes open for busy bees where your help would be greatly appreciated.

Exciting Nannup News

There's less than 2 weeks until Nannup and we have some exciting news!

Firstly, Speedlite Cycles will be asking the state's best to put their money where their mouth is. This round will see the fastest riders compete in a Top 30 shoot-out for cash prizes. With around 30 riders competing in the Elite Class alone so far this year, this should prove to be a hotly run contest.

Secondly, PMBC will soon be taking delivery of an upgrade to the timing system. Riders will be notified of their times on a live display immediately as they finish their run. Now you'll know exactly what you need to do on your second run to come out on top.

Race info can be found HERE, and don't forget to REGISTER ONLINE.

See you on the hill!

Tumbulgum - Final Announcement - Cash Prizes & Registration

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

We're now less than a week from Tumbulgum. The track is ready and has the tick of approval from some of WA's best riders. Even Sam Hill has been down to test and will be racing in preparation for his assault on the World Cup. Get ready for more of the biggest jumps than you will see on any track this side of the country.

Online registration has been well utilised so far. The option to pre-pay through the MTBA website closes on Wednesday night but you will be able to use the online pay-on-the-day form right up until Friday afternoon. Check the first Tumbulgum announcement on the front page for the links. We have decided that due to many people not realising our initial move to accept only online registrations we will be taking entries on Saturday. If you make the decision to race at the last minute you're in luck - this time!

XC round 1 Jarrahdale Wrap Up

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Today’s event was obviously very successful despite the hold up with number allocations at registration. We were simply overwhelmed by the massive number of late entries on the day. So if you can, please plan ahead and enter online by Thursday night, this saves us time, and it saves you $10 plus speeds up the proceedings dramatically.

Anyway, apart from the small time delay the day went well and all competitors needs to be congratulated for enduring the dust and the heat.

Once again, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the following people who made this event happen.

Mark and Jenny Wardle from “Rock and Roll MTB” and Jenny’s family. The prizes supplied were fantastic and the free BBQ and drinks were a massive bonus. Well done.

Ben McGrath and Mark Wardle for the awesome track.

Simon Coates from Cannondale and Shotz, thanks for your support and prizes

Ian Gray our Money Man

Gabby and Scott Littlefair for your help and First aid support

Tumbulgum - Sponsors, Prizes and we need volunteers!

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

We're only a few short weeks from the first (and most exciting?) race of the season. Now's the time to give everyone a little more info!

MOST IMPORTANTLY we need volunteers. Due to the nature of the track we require more marshals than usual. If you're planning on spending the weekend spectating then I'd ask that you consider helping us out. Each volunteer is provided with lunches on both days, and we will be covering your gate fee plus one extra. No experience is necessary and we will provide everything you need. If you can help please email me at dh(AT)perthmtb.asn.au.

Kalamunda Circuit. Special trail building days for you.

Special trail building days for you
We have taken on board the fact that a lot of riders have some difficulty being able to attend trail building days due to other commitments and we know as we have the same issues living in this busy world.
So get some of your mountain bike crew together, pick a date or dates that suits you and your friends, contact us and we will see what we can arrange. It would be good to have a group of 5 or more but there is no minimum limit, we want you to be able to participate in this fantastic community project.

You can contact us on kctrailbuilder@iinet.net.au or 0405 121 959

We hope to see you on the trail.

Cheers

Murray
