 Scrabble Scavenge Social Ride – Saturday 3 March, 10am

To celebrate bike week come and join us for a fun social scrabble scavenge! Suitable for all riders and age groups, collect a scrabble tile at each of the checkpoints along the course, the more laps you do the more tiles you’ll collect! Best word at the end wins a prize. We’ll also fire up the barbie and have the esky cold. This event is open to club members and non-club members although we do recommend cycling insurance through MTBA.

Cost will be $5 adults and $2 kids.
Saturday 3 March, 10am at Penguin Mountain Bike Park.

Parking available, enter via the top boom gate on Ironcliffe Rd.

Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service would like to remind everyone that the Keddies Creek track is a walking track only, no bikes allowed.


We as mountain mike riders were very privileged to have been granted permission to use this track for our Cranky Penguin event.

We do not want to risk losing access to such a beautiful track to ride for our next Cranky Penguin event in 2017, so please refrain from using this track, and do what you can to let anyone know if you see someone in this area.

Thank you, and a very big thanks to Tas Parks for the use of this track for our Cranky Penguin Marathon.
