Raise Money for an Off-road Hand Cycle

Perth mountain biker, Andrew, is trying to raise money for the Wheelchair Sports Association WA to purchase a customised off-road hand cycle which he and others with a physical disability can use on the trails.
 
Andrew broke his back riding in Queensland in 2009 and hopes to be able to ride the same trails with his mtb friends and rescuers later this year.

Mount Gunjin Update

The team from Dirt Art are back in town and the new trails up at Mount Gunjin are starting to take shape. The trail pictured above is the Blue jump and flow trail. Next week they will start to install the 13 steel and wood structures on the Black and technical Blue lines.
 
All up they should be fininshed in a couple of weeks when we can all start to enjoy these great new trails. I hope that you are excited as we are.

Please include the name of the rider, location, your name and any link to your photography website and/or facebook page. Discrete watermarks near the edge of the image are allowed.
