2014 Jafakids Muster

Our annual Muster has been and gone and it’s great to have new faces riding with us.

If you missed our Muster and would like to join please get in touch via and we’ll set up some trial rides with us.

Your first ride might be at a lower level than you are used to riding at – but that’s to ensure that we get you safely into the forest and out again. Once we’ve seen how you ride over two hours we’ll be able to put you into the right group the next time.





Mid-winter social evening and special presentations from our 2 World champs representatives.

Everyone is invited that is a member of the club or a parent of a member.
At the business end of the evening we will hold our AGM and we will be voting in a new committee but we will also use the event as a bit of a get together with videos and presentations from the older club members. Harriet and Peter will doing the special presentations and will also be selling some home baking to raise funds for their World Championship campaign so please support thier efforts. We will also have some drinks and pizza so don’t worry about dinner.
We hope that this will serve as an informal introduction and update for members new and old and bring the younger and older members a bit closer. The emphasis will be on fun for the kids whilst the parents sort out the business of the club (and also have fun).
I would advise all that can make it to attend as it is everybody’s club and we need everybodys input.
The venue is Western Springs Garden Community Hall, Main Hall, 956 Great North Road. and the time 5.30 to 7.30 next Wednesday the 2nd of July.
Please let me know if you can attend it will be good to see you all in normal clothes without helmets(unless you really do want to wear your bike gear). Obviously there will be no ride this Wednesday.
