Closed Public Holidays – Going Riding

Seeing as the Government in its infinite wisdom has decided that we “NEED” a public holiday for a football match, TRC will be closed on Friday…….

So come and join us for a social group ride on the awesome Plenty Gorge Trails instead! All levels welcome, but there will be some difficult sections that beginners may need to walk.

Meeting at 8am on Queens Gardens (Back of University hill estate Bundoora) For some ‪#‎madskids‬ for approx 2hrs. Then we might try and find a caffeinated beverage.

Please bring your own supplies of water, food and spares.

Yeti Cycles’ story begins all the way back in 1985, when company founder John Parker decided to sell his 1928 Indian motorcycle in order to buy the materials necessary to enter the world of mountain bike frame building. After a few years building frames with the Herting brothers (Chris and Eric), and Frank ‘the Welder’ Wadelton, Yeti moved from California to Durango, Colorado, where they remained until relocating to Golden in 1999. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing, and there was a period in the late ’90s when the future of the company was uncertain, but Yeti managed to soldier on, relying in part on the dedication of their loyal customers, a contingent of riders known as the ‘Tribe.’

In addition to maintaining a band of rabid followers, Yeti has also always had a strong focus on racing. The list of former team members is a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ of mountain biking’s best. Tinker Juarez, John Tomac, Missy Giove, Myles Rockwell, Kirt Voreis, Jill Kintner, Aaron Gwin, Sam Blenkinsop – there’s never been a shortage of world-class athletes on Yeti’s roster, and the tradition continues today with Jared Graves and Richie Rude battling it out on the Enduro World Series circuit. The competitive spirit carries over into the workplace at Yeti as well, and the daily lunch time rides often escalate into race-pace sufferfests.
