Australian Elite U23 Rider James Maebus in conjunction with Fat Tyre Flyers has organised an event to celebrate the use of the 2006 Commonwealth Games Course in Lysterfield, Melbourne.

The idea for a social ride on the site of the March, 2006 Commonwealth Games began when the free tickets issued to spectators wanting to view the MTB events up close sold out. That's right; there was a substantial number of tickets up for grabs but, I guess you could say every man and his dog got onto the bandwagon for Commonwealth Games events. This said a substantial amount of the MTB community were set to miss out on the chance to seeing the beloved events. So Maebus, along with FTF and Parks Victoria will be running a Social Event. Not a race; a Social MTB ride from Belgrave to Lysterfield.

Maebus spent much of 2005 organising this event from scratch and is set to introduce a new element to the ever-evolving form of MTB riding. The ride will incorporate a 2.5hr led MTB ride in small groups, all the elements of a race atmosphere, Sponsors, Prizes, Show bags, BBQ / Drinks and a whole lot of fun on December 17th.
