We're opening Coondoo to the max, although Missing Link and Bobsled still have some rutted and wet areas, so care is required (we'll get there).
Superbowl is fully open too; take care as there have been some changes made. We ask that riders respect the work that has been done and that NO NEW LINES be created; please stay on the trail.
Butterfly has had the least attention of late; it is now quite rutted following the big wet (and sadly has had a few moto's through it); it's rideable but care will be needed
Cabbage Tree Lane is also now open. The track has dried out significantly but there are still a few tricky areas so take it easy on your first lap to assess. Further work is planned ... thanks to the trail fairies for the repair work so far.
While the SCUM trails have previously stood up reasonably well, the severe weather of late has punished them. Consequently there is a great deal of repair work to do, this is hard yakka and takes significant time. Further trail maintenance / trail clearing times will be happening and we will need your help! We encourage you to attend to assist 'your club'.
Coondoo is now reaping rewards from all the hard work we've done. If you haven't ridden it lately, get out there and ride it. As Coondoo has been our priority our other trails - Superbowl, Butterfly and Cabbage Tree Lane - haven't received the attention they deserve of late and we have to ask for your patience and understanding as we work through our priorities.
Coming soon ... our 2023 calendar (check out our full 2022 Calendar for what it might look like)
Do you need to know what's coming up? Yes! We'll soon have our 2023 Calendar up for all to see (thanks for your patience ... for now check out last years to get an idea of what it might be like. Head to our calendar page for the full picture.
