The Albany MTB club is pleased to present the first ever race at the legendary Poikeclerup site!  Poikies has been spoken about in hushed conversations for many years but is set to burst into the public eye on the June Long weekend.  Please come and enjoy the venue as a competitor or spectator but be sure to bring your best behaviour – The club is currently working with the City of Albany to do significant development of Poikies and we want to ensure that we are welcome back!

PLEASE NOTE:
All participants and spectators are also required to follow all directions of event marshalls w/regard to parking and track access. Access to the closest parking area is 4WD only, but there will be space on the Poikeclerup access road.  Please keep the roadway clear for Emergency Vehicles, and drive slowly and courteously, as it is narrow in places.  

While this is a reasonably remote bush location, camping is NOT permitted and WILL be enforced by the City of Albany.  Two Peoples Bay Caravan Park is quite close, and offers reasonable tent sites and hot showers, and is only a couple of Ks down down the road. Kalgan River Caravan Park is also not far away, and there are numerous chalets and Air BnBs in the surrounding area.

Food & Drinks
Poikeies is a 25min drive from the middle of Albany, and at least 15mins to the nearest servo, so there will be Food (B&E Burgers, Hamburgers, Sausages etc) and Drinks available both days on site, but will be CASH ONLY.
