MMBCC News - 11 October 2011


Hi everyone ,


Road Racing.

Well the summer season has kicked off with the first road race which went well with not too many people feeling underdone!  Entries to Di for this week’s race on 0438 513 355 by Wednesday at 8.00pm please.  Also a belated congratulations to Darren Bakker for taking out the winter series - good effort when it's not always as enjoyable getting out when it's cold. Check out the photos on the Pictures Tab in News.

There is also a graded scratch race in Shepparton on Saturday 22 October starting at 10.00am for anyone interested. Go to /other-events for details.



Well done to Katie ,Tina ,Yully ,Uschi ,Tom ,Shannon ,Laurie and the rest of the Mountain crew for putting on a fun , inaugural 3 hour enduro at Riflebutts. The pairs format worked well and with a BBQ, beers, kids, families and luck with the weather, it was a really festive afternoon.

The Murray to Moyne committee have put out the following statement –

“The Recreational Riders subcommittee have decided not to organise a team for the 2012 Murray to Moyne Cycle Relay (31/3/12 to 1/4/12)
This decision was reached because of many factors including; the challenge to fill all places, fundraiser’s burnout, etc…
It can certainly be reconsidered if 16 keen and enthusiastic riders, who commit to raising some funds for the Mansfield Hospital, stand up to be counted!!!

Understandably the Hospital is disappointed as this event constitutes a significant annual community contribution. It enables them to purchase items that they would otherwise not be able to afford. Keeping this in mind we plan to continue to ride on trainers at the Cup weekend and Easter Saturday bush markets.

Any queries??? - See Jenny Lovick, Margaretanne Hood or Jen Sparnon.”
