Junior MTB and AGM

Hi All – only one week left of Junior MTB Club for the term – we have been hearing about kids arriving not dressed for the conditions (very cold and often wet and muddy) and bikes which need some work, please encourage your child to maintain their bike in a good working condition:

  • clean and dry the bike and all running gear especially after wet and muddy rides
  • lube chain
  • check brakes and gears are working properly
  • tyres in good condition and properly inflated
  • there are no serious rattles (pedals, handle bars, seats about to fall off)

If you need help servicing your bike, the guys at CyclePath are really helpful.

Junior Club rides will resume on Tuesday 4 October at 4.30pm.

You should have received an email from Jon Miller, Club President giving notice of the Club’s AGM – this is a great opportunity for all our members to meet other club members and have a say in the future of our club, and I would especially encourage people to consider being involved in the Junior Club sub-committee to ensure that our junior program continues to be strong into the future.

The roles on the various committees are:

Executive:

  • President
  • Vice-president
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer

MTB sub-committee:

  • MTB co-ordinator
  • Track works co-ordinator
  • Maintenance co-ordinator
  • Communications officer
  • Plus two floating members

Junior sub-committee (proposed)

  • Junior club co-ordinator
  • Plus up to five sub-committee members

For more information, or to nominate for a position on a committee email Jon Miller President@alpinecyclingclub.com.au or call 0420 572 660
A final reminder that the Junior Athlete Award will be presented at the AGM – applications close on 1 July – this award supports young riders in any discipline who are committed to cycling, it is not necessary for them to be an aspiring champion. I have attached an application form and would encourage any child aged 13 or older to apply for this award.

RAMBO MTB Race is coming up in Bright on Sunday 26 June and has a junior category – information can be found on the club’s website – we are still looking for people to help out as marshals, time keepers, first aid as well as BBQ master which we use as a fundraiser for the junior club program, so if you are around and can help out let me know.

Thanks for your support this year.

Jenny
