It may be winter, but if you pick your day then the riding can still be darn fine (as per the attached photo). Even if it is windy, cold and raining ... some of us can still find stupid reasons to go riding.
Looking at July's event updates, I'm super excited to see that the Dirt Devils MTB Club have kicked off their Cyclocross Winter Series 2015 with the next event (the State Champs) to be held on the 19th of July. For those in the north of the State, the Launceston Mountain Bike Club is organising another round of Winter Social Rides with their first ride to Ben Lomond on the 12th of July.
Also up north, Tbug has some interesting social rides coming up including a ride up Mt Barrow on the 26th July.
Rounding out the July events, for the runners this month there's the Glenorchy Fun Run and Endorfun's Russell Falls trail run.
Looking into August, we have the Ben Lomond Descent and the Winter Challenge multisport events coming up and looking further out dates have been set for another TasMudRun (September 20), the Triple Tops Trail Run Challenge (8 November) and the Convicts and Wenches Trail Run (March 13 - TBC).
As the countdown towards the Meehan Monster 2 continues, the Meehan Range Trail Groomers are holding regular work sessions including a trail building working day on Sunday the 12th of July where they will be erecting some new signage and doing maintenance in various sections of the range. They're always keen for more hands to help out, so check out their facebook page for more information.
You can view more details of all these events, and download Tassie Trails monthly one-page calendar from our major events page or via our google Events Calendar. This monthly update, with the updated print-format calendar, is also sent out each month as a newsletter if you want to subscribe. If we've missed any events, or you want to update or add something, then please get in contact. We're happy to promote any related activity.
To end this months update, if you've not already seen it, head on over to the Risdon Vale Bike Collective facebook page and check out their short video of the opening night antics. It looks good.
Until next month, ramble on ...
