With over 44 km of purpose-built mountain bike trails, people travel from all over the country to ride here and with a top-class trails demand a top-class centre. Whether you’re after a new bike, a skills course, a workshop tune-up or an award-winning bacon buttie, just drop in and we’ll sort you out.
The map for the stages will be released before the race so you can pre ride all the stages in the day light. We understand that not everyone is as fit as a butchers dog so the stages will be open to ride on Saturday to allow the not so fit to have nice easy ride round all the stages.
There will be nice easy transitions times between stages which will return you back to vistitors centre at the end of the race and hot food drinks from the cafe.
The stages will be made up of the Red and Black trails and will follow the main marked trails to keep everyone going in the right direction and so we dont lose anyone in the forest. These sections are designed for mountain bikers who are used to physically demanding routes.
