ANZAC Day

Grounds Use Update

If you are riding on the club grounds at any time all safety gear must be worn, no matter what and the cross country course is OFF LIMITS unless you have an instructor with you and all safety gear including VEST must be worn at all times as non-compliance will be taken as a serious breach, as you are not only putting yourself at risk but your club and committee as well. Under no circumstances are riders to use the main soccer fields for riding.

Closed Facebook Group

A closed members only Facebook group has been set up to enable the Committee and Instructors Panel to share updates and learning activities and members to provide photos, responses and videos of their progress. If you have not received an invite yet, please send a request here.

All activities will also be sent by email to for those members not on Facebook. Members who do not wish to post photo and video responses on Facebook, will be able to email these direct to the instructors.

Toilet Block Refurbishment

We were really grateful to have the opportunity to upgrade our toilets and showers in March 2020, this was only possible due to a recent Moreton Bay Regional Council Community Grant. A big shout out to Darren Grimwade and CJ Developments.
