Had a working bee at the track on saturday morning, new track is starting to look great with grass starting to grow, bit more rain will help, next step is to cut the grass and compact the track, should be fantastic.
Took to the litte bit of goose left with the hoes and got rid of that.
For those riders that did it last year the course has changed quite a bit. the other thing we have done is turned the course around, so lst years downhills become uphills etc.
The new course provides excellent views of the sea and forseshore as you head towards it

Entry forms are now on the web site http://www.longbeachbikeride.co.nz, due to a bit of erosion and the earthquake some new track has been laid. Bring the whole family there is an event for everyone, :)
