SCUM is now registered with the NSW Government's Active Kids Program. Vouchers can be used for club and MTBA membership; unfortunately they cannot be used for individual events entry fees.

When will I find out if SCUM will assist me with funding?
If you are successful in gaining a place in the Willo Camp, please advise SCUM via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you are aware. Once the SCUM Committee know how many junior members will be attending, we will advise how much we can contribute. Our aim is to support all riders as much as possible.
Please note: The Willo organisers will determine who attends the camp. Places are limited and a reference from the SCUM committee does not guarantee your acceptance.
Novice events cater for anyone new to Mountain Biking. If you want to get out there and have a go without feeling the need to 'race' then this style of event is right for you. Previous participants have included mums, dads, brothers, sisters, young and old; anyone that was keen.
Novice events coincide with each of the XC events and take in some of the best bits of each trail. They are short and sweet with a few of the bigger lumps and bumps excluded. Each Novice event runs in a marathon style with the course closing after the 30 minute mark, riders can do as many laps as they want or can in the allocated time (the overall riding time can therefore vary - can be up to approx 45 minutes).
Kudos to Mason Mawer & Scott Woods for coordinating the Novice events, plus all of the extras that regularly lend a hand; we can always use more help though so don't be frightened to put your hand up.
