The dust hasn’t even settled from the fantastic long weekend and the running of the Tasmanian Titles and people are already thinking about getting back on the bike. The next round of the state series is 6 weeks away, so if you’re looking to get a bit of practice in, head off to Tim and Vonette Mead’s place on the 21st of March at Moina.
This ride is, by all accounts, not to be missed and will take you into some fantastic wilderness. Some beds are available, or bring a tent and camp. If you would like to go, contact Tim Mead on 0418 502 224 and bring a casserole or a dessert for the evening meal.
Each year we put on the Tasmanian Titles. It’s not uncommon to attract riders from the mainland for this event, there’s usually quite a few that take the leisurely boat ride into Devonport then cruise down to Mt Joy. This year, it’s different. Some of you may have heard of Alexz Wigg. Some haven’t. If you haven’t, Google him. If you have, you’ll know he’s a Scottish Six Day winner, World Junior Champion, World Youth Champion, the list goes on. And now, he’s going to take on our loose shale and big rocks.
Seriously, get excited over this, it’ll be great to see someone of his calibre competing down here. If you’re a rider and you want training, check the newsletter for the contact details of Craig and Phil, Alexz will be doing a training day on the Monday following the two day titles.
Get up to Mt Joy, drag your kids, your mother, your uncle, everyone and watch this. If you’re not impressed with the level of competition, I’ll personally refund your spectator entry tee.
Entry is free!
