Apologies for the late notice, but after a quick review of the trails today following a week of solid rain, further hail and rain today and predicted strong winds and lightning it has been decided to cancel tonight’s race for chocolate. A make up race will be added after the last scheduled round this year. Please consider the trails if riding in or after heavy rain, we want them to be here for everyone to enjoy for a long time!
The web store is now open (it has been since the 7/10 but I’m slow on the update)! Closes on the 7/11/19, in time for pre-christmas delivery! Please head to the club merchandise tab for the details and link to the store.
GMBC are assisting Cycling Victoria to run a round of the 2019 VSCC MTB competition and we would love to have plenty of marshals to help out on the day! Morning and Afternoon slots are available (or both if you’re a legend), we are trialling the use of an online signup to confirm numbers and make the process more rewarding for you and the club! Follow this link to sign up.
Results from last nights L’Alpe d’Al (Round 6 WNFF) have been uploaded in the results section. We’re keen to hear feedback on whether this format (available in .pdf format by clicking the link) is to everyone’s satisfaction or if you would prefer it another way? We’re unsure at this stage whether it’s worth trying to upload the full results for people to trawl through (very much not worth it this time as there were no laps to record!) or whether the final summary will suffice? Unfortunately it’s unlikely that we will have any complex, yearly, searchable results able to be displayed due to technical and time constraints. .pdf or images is about as complex as we can manage unless you can provide us with the plugin to make it happen! PS please also let the UCI and every national organisation about this also because it’s lacking globally.
After many hours editing and deliberation we finally have a new website! We listened to your feedback and have hopefully addressed most of the (significant) issues with the previous (ancient) site. We’ve really tried to emphasise the events functionality of the site and have hopefully picked a plugin that keeps most people happy! The aim will be to have all GMBC events listed and managed on this site, with some news and photos on Facebook.
As the site is fresh and new there are sure to be some bugs and issues to iron out. Please test the contact functionality and let us know what the issues and problems are and what we should do to fix them! This includes incorrect information, functionality problems and broken links! Many hands make light work!
A huge thanks to Paul of Yates Design who has consulted and built the new site and carried over his work from a decade or more ago from the old site!
