G'Day All, and welcome to the website.
A big thanks to Norm and Jess for the work in putting it together. The Forrest "Out Of Range" MTB club is currently being lead by a small but very enthusiastic group of local riders, through the site we hope to get the message out to all visitors in the area about what the club has to offer.
Currently there is a Sunday Afternoon ride / race on the third Sunday of every month, starting a 4.00p.m. from either Forrest or Yaugher Trailheads - details on the club blackboard opposite the shop.
Last month we started a Wednesday night ride, thanks to Jess for leading and Jeff, Holly and Roland for braving the cold weather to get out and have a go, even if Roland did decide to take the short way home! The next night ride is on Wedensday September 3 at 7.00p.m. leaving from the Yaugher Trailhead. Jeff has promised to show us some great spots to ride. A reminder will be posted on the club blackboard opposite the shop.Open to anyone who wants to have a go, just don't forget your lights.
The club is also in the process of securing a bike trailer and several sets of lights for use by club members, you can also hire a digital camera and video gear from the Forrest Neighbourhood House for a small fee, lots of fun and a great way to get those YOUTUBE videos on-line Finally, don't forget the next club meeting on Wednesday August 20 at 7.00p.m. in the Forrest Hall.
We look forward to seeing all current members there, and if in the area, feel free to drop in and say Hello. We'll even try to get Nettie to test out the new latte machine! Until next time, see you on the trails Roland Joint Secretary Forrest "Out Of Range" MTB club
