General Discussion / Shipping bikes interstate
« Last post by TravG on November 25, 2020, 09:51:22 AM »
Does anyone have any experience with transporting bikes in interstate?  I’m unable to come down from Brisbane to Melbourne to collect my bikes from storage.  Is there a bike shop anyone knows of in Melbourne that could box up a mountain bike & CX bike and get them sent up north? 

Any help is appreciated.
Might have to swing past at 6 and see what gives..

Hey everyone,
I moved up here mid pandemic and finally my "bubble"
Allows me to get out to lysterfield and live up to my username

And a huge shout out to Terry for helping me sort out my Password issues
Not many out there that can do a lap of Lystie & stay within 5km of home.  The PV workers would barely be able to do a lap of the SMBC with the 5k now including your work place, if you count the PV compound in Reservoir Rd as their workplace.

Hi all, I'd love to hit some trails at Lystie now that a few of the trails are open but am looking for anyone who wants to join me (with social distancing and all) who is within the 5km bubble around the lystie trails. Cheers

Hi LDTR Club Members,

The LDTR AGM is coming up and will be held at the old Lysterfield visitors centre (formerly trail Mix) at 7pm on Monday 13th July. We will have a Zoom option available and capped numbers with whatever the COVD restrictions will be on the day. We will send an update closer to the date. All LDTR members are welcome to attend.

This year we are looking for new people to join the LDTR Committee. Sadly we are saying farewell to a few committee members this year, however this means that we have the opportunity to bring in new people, with a fresh approach. 

Being on the LDTR Committee means having a lasting impact in the MTB community around Lysty. We have over 450 members, and nearly 10,000 social media followers, making us one of the biggest MTB clubs in the country, and caretakers of the busiest MTB park in the country.

This year we are looking for:
Social Media coordinator. Someone with a passion for getting regular Social Media posts up, and coordinating content from the trail crew, events team and Social rides team. As well as answering inbound messages and comments on the posts.

Friday Fun & Lazy Loops Coordinator. For one friday a month across the warmer months, you will coordinate our long running FFLL series. Managing a small team of volunteers, organizing prizes, and setting up online regos. We've simplified the process immensely, so this will be a fun role to take on.

Working Bee Coordinator. organize our new monthly Working Bee's, with the assistance of the Head trail builder. The Working Bees general maintenance of the trails like clearing puddles and drains, and closing B lines. The Working Bees are a great way for people to volunteer their time at Lysty, without needing prior experience in trail building.

General Committee Member. Or you might like to join as a General committee member and assist the team Coordinators. The teams are Trail Build/Maintenance, Events, Social Rides and Skills Sessions, Admin (Social media, website, memberships etc) and Advocacy (getting more trails and features).

The LDTR Committee meets once every two months, and you’ll be required to attend at least 4 of the 6 committee meetings across the year. We hold the meetings at the old visitors centre at Lysty.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or you'd like to nominate for one of these roles.

I hope to see you at our AGM.

Tim - LDTR Club President.
