The Coaster – May 5/6

The Coaster returns to Roberts Creek May 5th and 6th this year. We have a full weekend of activities! On Saturday the XC Marathon takes off at 10am, showcasing about 50kms of fabulous Roberts Creek trails including some new single track we’re still working on.  If you’re not up for the whole shot try the Short Course XC with only 25kms. We offer 2 full feed stations and a racer recovery table at the end. Our pro racers will be compensated financially and everyone receives a fantastic Coaster beer mug featuring the wacky zany bike art of Sa Boothroyd.

Off the Edge bike shop is sponsoring a U12s race just after the marathon start that will see about 5kms of trails and lots of mud. A Run Bike race will take place in the main corral around 1pm.

The Sunshine Coast Equestrian Club is hosting a salmon BBQ and Red Truck beer makes a return. All on Saturday.

On Sunday May 6th the infamous Mach Chicken downhill race returns. Food supplied at the bottom of the course by the B Team. For more info and registration go to
