14 Dec MEMBER IN FOCUS: ALBANY MTB CLUB
Albany MTB Club, as the name suggests is based in Albany and currently has 130 members, which has been growing quickly over the past few years.
Nick Walls is the new club President for this year and along with the committee of 14 people, they have been very busy driving local events with the overarching goal to get a trail network built in town. Albany does not yet have any sanctioned trail networks and Albany MTB Club is working very closely with the City of Albany, State Government departments and the local community to have a Mountain Bike specific trails network constructed.
Despite this, They have managed to successfully run 3 club XC rounds and 3 DH rounds, a 6-hour XCM and also handle the Southern MTB Festival each year since 2014.
Albany MTB Club is very positive about the future of the sport and the benefits it will bring to locals and also to the region of Albany.
Joining is easy, just jump on their website HERE. They also have a very active Facebook page which keeps people updated with local events and social rides etc.
