The All Terrain Cycles Good Sport Awards were presented to Damian Grundy, for organising and handicapping this season’s Dirt Crits, and will be presented to John Eisner, for handicapping the Summer Road Series (and also because we’ve all decided he desperately needs a pair of knicks that actually fit!)

Strategic Plan Discussion

Following on from the Strategic Plan Discussion at Presentation Night, the first meeting - More People Riding - will be held on Tuesday 1 May at 6pm at the Delatite Hotel.
See you there! And ask any others who might be interested.

All Terrain Cycles Gravel Grinder race 2…

will start this coming Sunday 29 April at 9am from outside Rodwell’s on the Buller Road. Registration will open at 8.30 and presentations of prizes, including the ATC voucher to the winner, will be held afterwards at the Mansfield Coffee Merchant.

Mansfield Tour

At the Presentation Night we held a discussion on the 2019 Mansfield Tour, particularly about how we plan to split up all the work necessary… so it’s not all left to just one or two.
Here is a first draft of a breakdown of the roles we need filled. Each role has it’s ‘busy period’ at a different time of the year. Most of the work will be computer-based, so you need to be proficient with emails and probably spreadsheets too.

We received a few expressions of interest on the night but this is for those of you who didn’t attend Presentation Night.
If the Tour is to go ahead in 2019, we need more of you involved. Have a read of the roles and then, if you can help, please email Bruce.

Two Up Ride

Anzac Day saw the second annual Two Up Ride held. Eleven MMBCC members set off from the Bot Park on a planned route of approximately 85km with plenty of gravel sections, as is tradition.
However, due to too many punctures taking too long to fix (Ian Conrick set a new world record for FIVE punctures in one ride!) this had to be truncated to about 60km.
