Mystic Mountain Bike Park Closures

FOREST OPERATIONS ON ROBINSONS ROAD – TRAIL & ROAD CLOSURES

hvp_closures

This week HVP Plantations will be commencing a harvest road line operation within Mystic MTB & Flight Park. This operation will see the removal of some trees along the road edge in preparation for roading works that will ensure that the roads are ready for future haulage operations and safe for recreational users.

This a two stage operation; stage one will occur along Robinsons Road, stage two will occur along Moran Road – the time for each operations is expected to be less than a week and will run consecutively.

To support the Robinsons Road operation (stage one) the following trail closures will be in place; Flat Strap, Grevids Way, Caro’s Track, Fly by Night, Lars Link, Shady Lane, Gorilla Warfare, Rhys’s Pieces, Tree Hugger. Four Deers, Deer Stalker and Mystic DH. In addition the following road closures will be in place; Robinsons Road at Mystic Lane and Browns Road at Mystic DH crossing.

Trail and Road closures are an essential element in ensuring a safe environment for both contractors and recreational users. Following the instructions on the signs, the directions of the operator and staying outside the work zone at all times helps the operator to complete the job as quickly and safely as possible and as a result minimises the time that trails and access roads are closed.

Once the operation is complete HVP Plantations will inspect the area to ensure that it is safe for public access.

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.

Up DJ Opened!

Mystic MTB Park’s latest addition “Up DJ”, a meandering ascending trail with an A grade berm system, designed to provide a single track alternative to using Mystic Lane to access Hazledine Rd and sweet trails such as “Corkscrew”, “The Eiger”, ” Curtain” and “Avid Way”.

Lance movie

A great turn out for the new lance movie. And thanks to cloud nine for their generous donation to the junior athlete award! $280 raised.

Club Dinner Postponed

ACC Club Dinner Postponed. Unfortunately I’ve had almost as many replies from people who would like to come but they are not able to this Saturday. The restaurant requires a certain number to open and we are almost at that number.

So in the interests of everyone having more fun I’ve decided to postpone the dinner to a date that we can hopefully have the 60-70 people that would normally turn up.
Apologies if you’ve been inconvenienced. We’ll set a new date at this weeks meeting.

Regards
Aaron Smith
