KMBC are proud to announce the 3rd edition of the MARGS MUSTER.
Once again we have booked out Wharncliffe Mill and have exclusive use of all
facilities and enmities. Wharncliffe have been generous enough to offer a stay for 3 nights and pay for two package.
We are excited to announce on the Friday night we will be riding the short distance to the New Margaret River Brewhouse (www.brewhousemargaretriver.com.au) for a Sundowner of socializing, eating and sampling there beautiful range of craft beers, (don’t forget to bring your night lights) then returning to Wharncliffe to sit around the fire pit and stare into the coals.
Saturday will see the return of our free bacon and egg breakfast to get us ready for the day’s activities. Adults and kids activities will be on through out the morning with talk of shuttles down Paper Trail and Big Pine being planned. The highlight of the day will be the 2nd edition of the Goobers Pool Cup. Registrations and a sausage sizzle for lunch will be held at the Hairy Marron where we will ride out to Goobers Pool to smash the MRORCA crew on their own trail.
That night the kids disco will kick off again and Goobers Pool trophies will be handed out to the winning club. (which will be us of course) We have found a local supplier of beautiful meats and we will cook up a storm on the BBQ’s with homemade salads to even out the carnivals feast. (Meals will be at cost price).
The fires will be cranked up and MTB videos will be playing as always.
Sunday will see kids coaching sessions. Adults can go out and explore on their own or join us for more shuttles. Rod Lakelin has been kind enough to guide adults around Middle Earth for all that want to join him. We have secured a late check out with Wharncliffe so the morning should be nice and crusiey.

The KMBC Summer Sessions have been going from strength to strength with the second round attracting 51 riders with a stack on new faces. The ladies of the dirt had a wonderful showing making up a missive third of the riders! The evening ride was using the long run down Gunjin, Judderbars and Alchemy. There was a lot of chat about bikes and gear pre ride with some showing off there new bike purchases like peacocks trying to attract a mate. The first run couldn't start without the long ride up Brand New Second Hand toward the top of Gunjin. Once reached many took an extended break to build back some energy to attempt the flowy descent.
Once again riders were able to ride as many runs as they could squeeze in between 6pm and 8pm, with a sneaky few heading off a touch early. Everybody managed to navigate the trails well, only a few unlucky ones having to change tubes after their runs.
The riding came to an end and food and drinks began suddenly out of nowhere the "bearded madman" smashed out a super fast run well past 8 o'clock leaving everybody cheering with a massive whip under lights over the final double! The crowd settled and the very lucky Darren Grimston managed to score himself the $100 NZO clothing voucher - www.nzoactive.com/au/ . The very generous riders dug deep and donated a heap of notes and loose change to the KMBC youth development scholarship fund. Thanks heaps guys hopefully this will help facilitate the next Jordan Prochyra or Sam Hill.
The final round of the Summer Session Series will be on Feb 10th with a double header on Scorpion and Feral Groove (Start/meet at Farrell Grove Carpark) entries are now open at www.kalamundacollective.com.au/pages/summer-night-sessions Be sure to pre register to not only be in the chance to win another $100 NZO voucher, but we will be limiting numbers for this round so first in best dressed.
Big thanks once again to all that were involved with special thanks to Peter the "SUPER" volunteer, Steve from WA Gravity Enduro for the use of the timing equipment and data collation, NZO clothing for yet another $100 voucher and Terry from Beeliar IGA for the great deal on the food.

So the first Summer Session has been run and it was a great turnout, with 42 riders hitting up the Goldie locks – 3 bears – Mercury Street run. There was a plenty of pre-ride mind games going on and a few rumoured small tweaks (to other people’s bikes/camaelbaks) before the first run, which most managed without lights.
The format, allowing as many runs as you like, seemed to not necessarily favour the fastest climbers with many posting there fastest run first up. The strong female contingent kept it pretty tight but I think had the most fun. After a few solid runs we all kicked back with a BBQ and a nice cold brevvie, whilst Frank Marzoli took out the $100 NZO clothing voucher ( www.nzoactive.com/au/ )
On Friday the 13th of Nov Dept. Sports and Rec. hosted the 3rd annual MTB Industry Day at the Camelfarm. Invities included representatives from WAMBA, Dept. Parks and Wildlife, DSR, KMBC, Silent Revolution and Shire of Mundaring just to name a few. Jason of Rock n Roll took us on a guided tour of our trails, while Ian Humphrey of KMBC answered all questions and explained different aspects of our network. Lots of ideas were shared on how to advance mountain biking in Western Australia and the future is looking bright for us all.
Thanks to Steve Bennett and his crew at DSR for organising a great day.
Kmbc would like to wish a champion of our club Tony Ratcliffe all the best for the future. Tony has made the decision to live in Manila. Whenever we needed a hand Tony was always there. To thank him for the hundreds of hours volunteer work we decided to throw a surprise ride/bbq for him. We thought we better dress him up for the occasion!!! Thanks to Phil, Graham (and the family) and the usual suspects. For all their help.
