Environment

One of the things that we are passionate about (not just riding), is the environment. Warrnambool Mountain Bike Club's recently completed a project at the Thunder Point Coastal Reserve as part of a Woody Weed Removal Grant. Many years of neglect at Thunder Point Coastal Reserve prior to the Warrnambool Mountain Bike Club's involvement, led to an explosion of woody weeds. The club, through a number of partnership and community programs has co-ordinating and participating in the clean up of the reserve. High on the hit list is African Boxthorn, Sweet Pittosporum and a host of other weeds from the site. Further, the Warrnambool Mountain Bike Club has been and active participant in Clean-up Australia Day. We and our partners are currently engaged in a number of revegatation projects within the thunder point reserve.
