President excited what CCTRC has done and what is ahead
MOTORSPORT: Curtis Coast Trail Riders Club president Lenny Page is excited with what the club has to offer.
The club's next event, in what is a busy year, will be the annual Reloaded Trail Ride on May 18-19.
"It will be held at 913 Mount Hector Road, Ubobo," Page said.
"This is a two day recreational event open to the public which last year drew in more than 500 people.
"This event will have marked courses for peewee riders, beginners, open class and advanced riders from ages five years and up."
Other events in June, August and October would follow and Page said the club was gaining traction from afar.
"It is a local not-for-profit sporting organisation that formed over 20 years ago," he said.
"We received our certificate of incorporation in 2006 and have been operating as an independent legal entity offering recreational, competition, coaching and find raising events to off road motorcycle enthusiasts in the Gladstone region ever since."
Page said the CCTRC riders, volunteers and supporters come from right across regional Queensland and the club's events drew people in from as far as Townsville, Mackay, Winton and the Gold Coast.
"Our social media profile reaches as many as 6500 people," Page said.
"Our club is run by a small group of dedicated volunteers and our events cater for riders of every skill level from absolute beginners to national title holders."
The president has been involved with the CCTRC in the mid-2000s "I was a recreational trail rider and was interested in getting involved in a local club," Page said.
"After leaving the region for several years and returning with young children, I decided to rejoin the club. I was genuinely excited to hear that this small recreational club from humble beginnings had developed into a professional organisation holding state and national level events yet still offered beginner training days and held onto it's family focus."
