We have decided to push back the workshop on sunday to a 1pm start at Velo. This will enable DA to get in a few more hours of track work on the machine for us and also hopefully enable those unavailable in the morning owing to racing/riding to come along to the workshop.
Hope you can make it!
the rescheduled DirtArt trail building workshop will be occurring this weekend, on Sunday August 2nd from 10am til 2pm.
ACP have commissioned and are funding this trail work (200m approx) and workshop and any ACC member is encouraged to come along to learn some new skills. No previous experience is required. Please reply here if you can make it, to assist with catering requirements.
We will have an approx 1 hr “toolbox” meeting at Velo at 10am followed by a couple of hours on the new track DA will be constructing saturday, an extension to the “Jayne Link” towards “Bombsite”. After that a nice cold one at the brewery may be in order!
By all means head down Saturday to see the machine at work but please adhere to safety regs and stay well back!
Hope to see you on the weekend.
Our August MTB Meeting is on next Thursday, August 6th, 7.30pm at the Bright Brewery. Come along to catch up on all that’s been happening and what’s planned for the rest of the year.
Hope to see you there!
apologies for the late notice but the workshop planned for tomorrow morning has been postponed owing to an opportunity that has arisen to have the workshop run in a few weeks with the aid of a mini-excavator that will incorporate providing us a few hundred metres of new trail as part of the workshop i.e. at no additional charge!
It will also provide the opportunity to have training in the process of trail completion works following machine initial trail construction.
Sorry once again and if you have any questions please let me know.

John Woodman Memorial Handicap from Wagga to Albury
We have our annual Wagga to Albury road race on the 26th of July.
I was just wondering whether you’d be able to share the link on your website/Facebook page/Newsletters etc.
Given the gap in the calendar created by the cancellation of the 2 NRS races this provides a fantastic opportunity for a really solid hitout for some of the elite cyclists within your club. And given the nature of handicap racing those who aren’t quite so ‘elite’ will be handicapped accordingly!
It is an iconic race and one of the few 135km point to point handicaps left on the calendar.
Dirt Art have confirmed they will arrive in Bright this monday night. They will spend some time tues on the ground familiarising once again and then we will have a “knights of the round table” meeting tuesday night to discuss our thoughts on new track needs. We will meet at the brewery @ 6pm. We will have maps and the master plan there to assist with this of course.
Post this meeting, DirtArt will then get out on track to complete the detailed design work from Wednesday to Friday. I encourage anyone with time to attend all or part of this time to assist, provide input and learn. Saturday morning (8.30am – 1.30pm) will then be a workshop for members. This will be an opportunity for us to further our trail design & building skills. Please confirm your attendance for this.
