YarraBUG member Steve, with his Lysterfield MTB group helmet on, is
organising a MTB Trail Working Bee this weekend in conjunction with
Parks Victoria rangers. If you're interested in assisting with trail
maintenance at Lysterfield Park and meeting other MTB riders ( + free
lunch and limited numbers for a lift from the inner burbs), please
contact him by Friday 5/10: frm125_steve at yahoo.com.au
Craig Durkee and Ross Donnan are planning a three day ride from
Melbourne to Sydney to raise money for the Starlight Children's
Foundation. With the riders planning to cycle 950km over 72 hours, it
does sound a bit like an Australian-style Paris-Brest-Paris, but for a
great cause! Please read more about the ride at the link below.
Also don't forget if you're getting ready for Ride to Work Day or the
ATB, please make sure your bike is ready too. YarraBUG sponsors,
Abbotsford Cycles at Richmond Station provide excellent servicing &
repair for road bikes and the Bike Fix crew at Carlton Gardens on
Sundays can help you with basic repairs and servicing.
MTB Trail Working Bee, Oct 6/7. - Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th, 9 - 4 both

MYAMUGS - Multi-Use, Guarding Straps
Message from Rob Cassidy: We are a group of Australia National
University students who have formed a company, Mya, as part of the Young
Achievement Australia Business Skills Program. As part of this program
we have created a product, Multi Use Guarding Straps (MUGS). A large
portion of our sales has been to cyclists who use it to protect their
clothing by keeping it out of the chain. It is also used to help be seen
from the side at night because of the reflective material, we have three
different versions, one is an LED version to help make cyclists as
visible as possible. For more information please see the attached
brochure or visit our website www.myamugs.com
As a requirement of Young Achievement Australia Business Skills Program
we must liquidate our business by the 29/10/07 so please put any orders
in ASAP. We are happy to take orders from individuals or stores who want
to re-sell our product as we can offer a discount to stores. Please
distribute this to anyone who you think would be interested, we can post
Australia wide. I apologise if you are not interested in this email, it
is not spam and you’re not on any mailing list, you won’t hear from us
again unless you contact us.
Thanks for your help,
