Dam Dark 12 hr

Townsville, November 9 & 10

Forget everything you think you know about 12 hour racing. This event is a family one; non riders will have as much fun as riders! Here’s what we’re planning:

Four teams of four riders, everyone travels up to Townsville on Saturday 9th; sets up gazebo’s, picnic blankets, families and friends kick back enjoying the balmy Townsville evening enjoying the fun games and BBQ put on by the Rockwheelers.

Riders take turns at riding a 6km loop around the Ross Dam trails. When your turn’s over or you’ve had enough (one lap, two laps, two hours… it’s up to you & your team); pull up, grab a ‘cold one’ and have a rest – chat to other riders camped nearby or have a nap (BYO teddybear).

Please email the club whitsundaymtbc@gmail.com ASAP with details on which team you would like to join – none of the teams are full and when we say ‘race’ or ‘fast’ we mean fun!! We want you to be involved!!
These are the four teams we are entering:

Whitsunday Women of Dirt
All female team – just out to have fun, not too serious – ride as many laps as you like, rest when you want. Easy and fun.
South Molle Spokesmen
All male ‘fast’ team – a little more serious and a little bit faster than the others – but still out for fun!!
Airlie Beach Bicycle Brethren
All male ‘social’ team – a little less serious – probably a bunch of ‘dad’s’ having a nap and telling their wives how tough it was.
Conway CogRegation
Mixed ‘social’ team – a whole lot of fun – newbies encouraged, husband & wife teams – more fun than other nocturnal activities ;)
