The weather blessed us, about 70 people turned out for the opening of the mountain bike trails in Nowa Nowa. Over 40 riders including lots of kids participated in the Pigs Poker race run by Gippsland MTB Club. Johnno, Lenny and the boys made sure it was fun for all. The tracks were well worn in by the end of it, and the riders said they love the tracks, especially no. 2. Gerard Callinan and Mark De Bono from ABC radio Gippsland rode them on the we t Thursday previous, and had a ball. See http://www.abc.net.au/gippsland/?ref=portal_m10 for photos and live footage. People are coming from all over the state and enjoying the MTB trails that are user friendly for all levels of riders. Most weekends in Nowa Nowa, more and more cyclists can be seen using the East Gippsland rail trail or heading to the MTB Park with bikes loaded on the back of the car. After the many monthe of design, planning and trail construction, it was very rewarding to see those happy faces enjoying opening day.
