There is will be cost of $5 per rider for non-LMBC or BA affiliated club members. This is for club public liability purposes, although the LMBC will pay for your first 2 social rides (only). Alternatively, you could join the MTBA as a social member for $45 or join the LMBC for $110. This will provide you insurance for Public Liability b) Professional Indemnity c) Personal Accident.

What you need;

• A bike that is in good mechanical order, with working brakes and gear shifters – it won’t be all downhill! If you are unsure, we can help you out and refer you to a number of great Launceston bike shops.
• Correctly fitting helmet, enclosed shoe and comfortable clothing.
• A drink bottle or three and perhaps a few snacks. There is also nothing better than a cold drink and snack waiting for you in the car!
• You may also want to have a spare tube, pump and tyre levels, just in case. If you are not sure how to change a tub, no worries. We can walk you through it!
