The You Yangs Mountain Bike Club was developed as a not-for profit organisation to assist with the improvement and maintenance of the Mountain Bike Park, raising funds via Racing, Events and Shuttle Days.
The You Yangs MTB trails are not government funded. We have been building and maintaining trails since 2010. All work is done by volunteers, donations & dedication. Our ride days & events are purely fundraisers.
You Yangs MTB Inc want to advise our Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on 3rd November at 7pm due to Covid restrictions and ongoing lockdowns for majority of our members the meeting will be help online using Zoom.The meeting link will be emailed the weekend before the AGM to all current club members.The committee is reaching out to the club members, as we want to get new committee members on board and get some new blood involved. In order for the club to have a successful long-term future we are reaching out now.
