Incident on our trails over the weekend

It is with a heavy heart that we have to tell you about a panga attack by two men on Shaun Morris on Sunday morning, 25 Sept. Shaun luckily escaped with a minor injury, but this, of course, means that we all have to be that much more careful and vigilant on the trails. The attack happened at the bottom of Arrie’s Arrival, between Raithby and the Water Works. The committee will discuss the way forward at a meeting tonight, but you will understand that we do not have the resources to patrol our routes. PLEASE make sure you ride in a group if you venture onto the trails.

Somerbosch parking on Saturday 24 September

We received a request from Somerbosh. ¬†“Get Wine” hosts a wine show there on Saturday. Could the morning riders please park their cars behind the cellar as it normally gets quite chaotic in the normal parking spots? ¬†Please adhere to the request of our kind hosts.

Trail run at Dornier on Saturday 3 September

Iqela events is hosting the Cellar 2 Cellar trail run this weekend, on Saturday the 3rd of September. Part of their 20 km run will go through a small section of our single track at the top of Dornier. Please note that cyclists and runners will be sharing the same route from 08:00 until 11:30. Take care and be courteous to one another. They will not be using our trails next year.
