Just been down the scenic this morning and the majority of the track for tomorrow's chocolate fish race is good to go with some changes to track.
If however we get this rain tonight and tomorrow that's expected we will have to cancel again. So if you wake up in the morning and its raining stay in bed and keep warm! I will also but a post up when i head down to set up at 8.

Hi all, got a pair of pants with integrated liner, size S, as per the link below. Two years old, good condition, no longer needed. If anyone wants them, let me know.

We need to do this in our area.
The council is only obligated to act when the larger part of our community speaks out.
We also need to collectively get together, be it, Bikers, runners or walkers and put forward a submission for this facility as a general requirement.
Doing this separately doesn't have the impact or persuasiveness of a large group.
A loop around Timaru would be great for all, plus smaller facilities, eg (pump tracks & short MTB trails) dotted throughout the city linking specific parks and recreation spots would be great to encourage the younger generation to get outside and become more active.

Big thank you from Eds Crew, Year 1, Outdoor Rec, to Cam for looking over some of our bikes last weekend. Our trip was awesome and we all made it home in one piece.
