It's been awhile since we've had some updates here, so I thought I'd give everyone a preview of what's in store for this year.
We've got two XC social rides planned in the next few months, they are as follows;
Sunday 19th May - Silvan
Meet in the overflow carpark across from the park at the bottom of the reservoir. Stonyford Road. Allow enough food/water for about 3 hours of sweet singletrack.
Sunday 23rd June - GWS Anderson Scout Camp, Dickie Rd, Officer
Tired of the same old trails? Then come for a ride with us at Officer Scout park and experience the highly rated tight & twisty singletrack, venue for a round of the VES last year, and home turf for the Fat Tyre Flyers. All welcome.
Burn the Fat Race Day
Last year's "Burn the Fat" 6hr enduro was a huge success, with everyone loving the trails. Whilst the Fatties haven't got a round of the VES this year, we are still planning our own "special" race day. This will be a little different to previous offerings, with a stand alone singlespeed only mini-enduro (~2hrs), followed by the main event (3hr enduro) in the afternoon. The course will be shorter than the one provided last year, but it won't be easy. Look out for some crowd pleasing new trail features near the transition area. Also planned for this day are a couple of time trial hill climbs, one for the gearies whilst the SS race is on and then vice-versa in the afternoon. We may even start the riders in pairs for some extra excitement! Date for this is still TBC, but looks like Saturday 5th October. Pencil it into your diaries (or phones now I suppose). The singlespeed race is part of a 3 race Victorian Single Speed Series, with another two races in regional Victoria.
