Monster weekend for South Coast United Mountain Bikers

It’s on again.  On September 22-23 the South Coast United Mountain Bikers, SCUM for short, are hosting their annual monster weekend of riding they call the “Flow ‘n Five Fest”.

The action happens at the famous Coondoo singletrack, in the Curumbene State Forest south of Nowra. 

The Flow ‘n Five Fest kicks off on the Saturday with a fast and furious Flow event over four short stages. 

This one is a great warm-up for regular riders, and a terrific introduction for those new to the sport who want all the thrills without too much muscle strain. 

Having whetted their appetite, on Sunday, it’s time for the big one, the five-hour endurance cross-country race for individuals and teams. 

All standards and age categories of riders are catered for and a big turnout is again expected.

SCUM have been busy for the past couple of months, adding some great new trail features, including the massive new berm, making sure all riders get maximum fun. 

Riders can come for one day, or both, with overnight camping available for out-of-towners. 

As usual with SCUM, this is a very family–friendly event and the socialising is likely to be just as enjoyable as the racing. 

Full information on this and all SCUM events can be found on our website (www.scum.asn.au).

Club members are proud to have built three cross-country trails that contain some super fun singletrack, a nice combination of fast and flowing and some tight and technical, all managed under a NSW Forestry occupancy permit.
