The Wellington Mountain Bike club will be having a dig on sunday to get some of the Jawbone track track finished.

We meet at the brooklyn turbine carpark at 9:50 and head in at 10am. generally work to about 2pm-ish depending if we get stuff finished.

We dont mind any newbies and non memebers coming along to digs ,but we wont be letting 2wd through the gate so car pooling with 4wd's will need to happen.
Membership forms will be available too.

for more information abouit the club, long Gully and memberships visit the club website: http://www.wmtbc.org.nz/

you still havnt ridden the track yet have you?

Think your in for a big surprise :)

Reckon its the fastest track with the least amount of pedalling and the most features ive seen on any track , reckon the winning time will be just over 3 minutes.
gonna be hard to go reallly really fast !

Ricky are we going to run the "old arthritic bastards on Sundays sub world championship"?

PS I've been shopping at Rankin mart and have picked myself up some nice italian bling wheels , they are red so will give me a distinct advantage.
