Dirty Molle Done

Better late than never… we’ve been busy running the Dirty Molle so our newsletter has taken a bit longer to get out, but read on to hear all about how things went over on our Island Escape and check below to see what events are still coming up!

The second annual Dirty Molle Island Escape saw more than 40 participants descend on Airlie Beach last weekend to take part in the two-day camping trip that includes rides on the mainland and on South Molle Island.
The trip started with the WGW; 15 keen riders took on the challenge while the rest of the group travelled to South Molle and set up camp.
Once all the riders arrived we went on a short ride to Balancing Rock – this was one of the highlights’ for organiser Chris.
On the Sunday morning riders jumped on their bikes and headed over the island on a 14km ride that took in two stunning lookouts and the gorgeous jetty at Bauer Bay.
The event attracted riders from Moranbah, Mackay and Townsville. Check out the photos on our Facebook page. You don’t need to have a Facebook account to view the images. www.facebook.com/dirtymolle

HUGE THANKS go to Sam & Michael Sorley, Bob Clanfield, Leigh Smith, Jason Whitham, Dave Morris, Justin Lyons and Nick Wynne-Jones who not only make the event possible but make it really special!!

Climbing up around the corner and seeing 30+ riders kicking back on this awesome rock-face, chatting about mountain biking and really enjoying the Island and the experience was amazing!

It’s also fantastic that after four trips to the Island the trails can still delight and surprise me! Chris
