Our first event of the year is fast approaching. This 6 Hour Metrogaine follows on from the highly successful “LaneCoveRivergaine1” in February 2015.

In 2016 we continue the journey down the river from De Burgh's Bridge as far as Stringybark Creek in Lane Cove.

We are also looking for a few extra on-the-day volunteers, if you can help out for a few hours prior to the start at the rego area or help directing cars please contact Ted [email protected]

Calling for Volunteers in 2016

Our sport depends on people contributing time and energy to the organisation of our events. See the volunteers' calendar and if you’d like to put your hand up, or know more about roles please get in touch with Dale at [email protected], or contact the event organiser.

Not ready for a major role, how about helping out as an assistant to the registration team or event organiser?

We are also looking for an E-newsletter contributor to coordinate these e-bulletins.
