TIME: Sign on 8am till 9.30am. to ride
LOCATION: AWABA - Main Carpark near the container.
COST: MTBA licenced riders $30. Add $5 for a social day licence if you don’t have an MTBA licence.

We will still need to hire a bus/troopie to shuttle. NO PRIVATE SHUTTLES ON CLUB DAYS.
Bring digging tools, gloves and wear appropriate clothing.

For riding, full face helmet, long sleeve / elbows.

Awaba downhill track is currently closed. The track has taken a beating in the recent storms, with a lot of the track destroyed by the volume of water that went through. The bottom, after Half Ways Down will be closed indefinitely (It is NOT SAFE). The track needs major work and we need a lot of helping hands. Four people turned up last week for the repair day and this is just not enough!!! The club will be outlaying money to hire in machines where appropriate, but in the meantime MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK so please come along on Sunday.
