Each month, we select three groups who are doing excellent things in MTB in Australia. We've recently DOUBLED the amount of funds we put forward - so now each month, we put $1,200 on the table, and we ask our customers to vote to decide who gets the funds.
Each group gets at least $300, but the group with the highest votes at the end of the month scores $600!
Check out the groups for February 2020:
Bushrangers MTB Club (QLD)
Our club was formed in 1993 and incorporated in 1995 when mountain biking (MTB) in Australia was in its infancy. Since then the club and the sport have gained popularity through advocacy and participation. The Bushrangers MTB Club is a volunteer-based organisation run by enthusiasts, for the benefit of promoting and supporting mountain biking across the region. We do regular rides all over Sunshine Coast and SEQ from Cooloola to Brisbane, in national parks, state forestries and council parks.
The Dollars For Dirt money will go towards supporting trail care activities in Parklands Conservation Park, Mapleton Forest Reserve, Sugar Bag, Tewantin State Forest and Ferny Forest (Beerwah State Forest).
