The committee has now conducted an initial start up meeting with Common Grounds and Parks & Wildlife representatives to kick along the project.
NBCC will keep you all informed as we progress the plan this year towards the build stage. Our aim is to complete up to 7km of Cross Country Trail. There are many hurdles to cross in the process, but we are confident of getting a positive result for the entire community to benefit from.
A big thanks to the City Of Joondalup and Parks & Wildlife for supporting this desperately need project in our Northern Suburbs.

Great News! City of Joondalup has recommended funding to NBCC for a Dieback study and Concept plan for the Joondalup Mountain Bike Park.
(APPROVES a grant of $19,305 to the Northern Beaches Cycling Club for their Dieback Study/Concept Plan project, subject to the club entering into a formal funding agreement with the City)
But we still need members support. Tuesday Night 20th Nov 7pm, City Of Joondalup Council Meeting. The funding will be announced and it would be an advantage to have our members there in club colours to support the proposed funding. Please! If you can spare a few hours to attend to ensure this gets over the line. I will be there along with Chris Howard. Please PM if you need to know more.

Well its done! Your NBCC committee has been working hard for the past 2 months preparing a submission for the City Of Joondalup Sports Development Grant. If successful, we will engage local trail designers to produce a trail concept plan for a dedicated Mountain Bike Circuit in the Yellagonga Regional Park. NBCC has applied for 20k to produce the plan and conduct site studies. This will then lead onto funding for construction in 2019. Its early days but we are confident of a successful outcome.

The Perth & Peel Mountain Bike Master Plan will be officially released this Wednesday 5th July 2017. This is a huge step forward to the development of a Northern Perth Based Mountain Bike Track. NBCC have been working hard behind the scenes along with DEPAW, Westcycle and Local Government to put forward a framework and concept plan for a 6km XCO sale trial in the Joondalup area. While the exact area needs to be fully endorsed by DEPAW, we look forward to the plans release next week. We will then move forward to secure funding for the concept plan. I will update our members on progress as we move forward through the process. Please feel free to ask any questions or if you would like to contribute towards the process.
