Dirty Dozen Tag Line

The people at Tourism North East are close to finishing off The Dirty Dozen migration. However, they are looking to add a tag line to the current logo.

They want to convey the message “ridden by locals, picked by locals – now it’s your turn”. Trying to squeeze this into a nice, short tag line has proved quite the task, so they’re throwing it out to a good old crowd source. Keep in mind the need to keep in step with the DD language. Shred, attack, MTB, rip. Trying to channel a 21 year old dude…

“The Dirty Dozen are a sweet selection of 12 MTB trails, handpicked by riders, for riders. Local riders have spent hours in the saddle, smashing and shredding trails all over Victoria’s High Country, and have chosen this tidy collection of rides. Over to you…”

Here’s one to kick things off:

The Dirty Dozen

Handpicked by the best.

It’s your turn to shred.

Winner gets a packet of bullets! (I will try and not eat them all!)

Safer Alpine Roads

After some online angst from non-cyclists in the community that appeared to resonate in December 2014, Michelle Kent and Jenny Griffiths  came up with the ‘Safer Alpine Roads’ project.  The project aims to create more understanding and respect in the community between cyclists and non-cyclists.  It will also clearly define appropriate driver and cyclist behaviour on Alpine Shire roads and will seek to get this message out to cycle tourists visiting our area.  The project would be jointly owned by the Alpine Cycling Club and Team Mount Beauty.
The project will engage an independent facilitator (the most significant cost for the project) to discussion sessions in Bright, Mt Beauty, Harrietville, and possibly Myrtleford, between cyclists and non-cyclists.  The outcome of these talks will be a community-owned  Code of Conduct we can put online and use to engage with accommodation providers, event managers, and Melbourne-based cycling clubs.  These are avenues we can reach cycle tourists.  In this way we hope to influence the behaviour of cyclists and drivers visiting our area.  We will also have some media coverage designed to humanise cyclists in the community.  Shepparton has done something similar with the media, and there are a few examples of Codes of Conduct we can use as starting points.
There have been discussions with many people since the idea was first proposed and it seems that cyclists and non-cyclists in the community believe there is a need for something like Safer Alpine Roads; the project is supported in principle by agencies and organisations who play a role in cycling in the Alpine Shire including the Council, the Police, VicRoads, the North East Road Safety Group, and Tourism North East.

ANZ Mortgage Introducer Program

At the AGM, Gina Luczkowski, club member and branch manager of ANZ Bright, handed over a cheque for $1876. This came from the bank’s Mortgage Introducer Program.
ANZ believe that they have a responsibility to support the local community. They recognise that clubs such as ours are integral to the viability and amenity of regional communities.

In order to achieve this, ANZ will provide a financial benefit to the ACC for any mortgage or business loan referred to by the club. This is completely confidential, the club won’t know who borrowed the funds or how much.
So, if you’re thinking of borrowing and would like to help the club at the same time, give Gina a call – 5732 5000
