Due to the closure of the You-Yangs mountain bike trails No Frills Friday Round 1 will be posponed until the tracks are open again

Stay dry everyone!









Winter No Frills Friday

Yes, it's back - Winter No Frills Racing, this Friday night 14 June.

Check out the info on the Events page and we'll see you all there!


Young Guns great success!

The weather wasn't particularly kind to our group of Juniors heading off with Norm & Jess Douglas from MTBSkills for their skills session this morning.   It didn't seem to matter too much - they all seemed to enjoy themselves and learnt quite a bit about getting around the trails faster.

The BBQ lunch was pretty good for warming them up afterwards too!


Ride the Castlemaine IW course

Castlemaine Rocky Riders are taking a couple of GMBC'ers out to see the InterWinter course this Sunday 2 June

Meeting at the Theatre Royal in Castlemaine.

They're planning a quick coffee then riding out for a course demo.

Flick them a quick email if you want to go along



Young Guns program launch

GMBC are starting a YOUNG GUNS program and our first event is on Sunday 2nd June at the You Yangs.  Jess Douglas from MTB Skills will be running a junior skills session for 13-17yr olds, followed by a social ride and BBQ lunch.  

The best news is this is FREE for our Junior GMBC members.   So if you know a teenager who is interested in joining GMBC this is the time for them do it!     Places are limited so they need to join up and RSVP via the Contact page now to secure their spot and get a cool GMBC hoodie too!


InterWinter Rd1 done - here comes Rd2!

Were you there last Sunday at Creswick for the first round of InterWinter 2013??   What a perfect day (not a drop of rain!)  and fun Enduro laps around the golf course at the Novotel.    Check out all the results here!
So it’s time to get ready for the next InterWinter round – Castlemaine, at the Pineys on Sunday 16th June for an XCO (multi-lap race) and Super D (Individual timed short course).  


Need a race partner or social ride friend?

Our 'Team Mate Finder' had some teething problems, but it's all fixed now and ready to go! :-)

If you're looking for a team or partner for anything; VES, S.H.I.T.S, Club Events, or just a social ride after work or on the weekend, (maybe even a bit of internet mtb dating!) POST IT HERE!
The information will come up on the screen for public viewing, and people that are interested can login to find your contact details and hookup with you for whatever event you've advertised.
Give it a go - we think you'll find it very handy! :-) It's under the EVENTS tab.
