Hi everyone. We’ve got the rakes and shovels out again but this time in cyberspace.
Today we’ve started building a bigger and brighter website to serve as a central hub for the Rockhampton mountain biking community.
We also aim to provide a central resource for visitors to the region who would like to try our excellent mountain bike trails.
Please be patient during this brief construction phase. We will be adding new content daily and hope to have the site finished in about two weeks.
We hope you like it – Stay tuned 🙂
