Bikes for sale

There are two newly-listed bikes on the For Sale pages.
The first is Kian's Trek Superfly mountain bike and the second is Foley's Scott Foil road bike.
Both are a bargain!

Riflebutts Working Bees postponed

Last Sunday's working bee had to be postponed due to the dreadful weather and the next scheduled one (we've just found out) is Father's Day. So two new dates will be announced soon.

Confirmation that disc-brake road bikes are now legal

After the press release we quoted last newsletter, here is the link to the Cycling Australia website confirming the new regulations.


A new organisation called as ‘Ride4Rescue’ is running a charity mountain bike event known as ‘Capital2Koszi’. 
They raise money for 2 charities; RestoreOne Cambodia and ADRA Blossom Vanuatu - funds raised go to support wages for teachers in rural Cambodia and provide sex education to girls in Vanuatu so they can make better choices.
The first event happened in March this year and was so successful it'll be an annual event.  They have spots for only 30 riders with just 11 spots left for next years ride (26th Feb - 4th March 2018)
It begins at the steps of Parliament House in Canberra and rides through the beautiful snowy mountains to finish on the top of Mt Kosziosko five days later.
To find out more about them, their ride and the charities they raise money for go their website.
