So you got a new bike but not sure where to ride.
Here is some little spots for you to check out.
The Lysterfield Mountain Bike trail network is one of the most popular riding destinations in Victoria.
Located near Narre Warren in Melbourne's East it has riding for everyone.
The Peninsula offers excellent mixed trails within the Arthur’s Seat State Park as well as an extensive roadside trail network which has been featured in International press. Visiting the local amenities, cafes and winerys via these roadside trails is a delight. The officially sanctioned mountain bike trail network with in the park offers everything from gentle green grade trails, right up to black diamond high skill for the adrenaline junkies.
Blores Hill Mountain Bike Park is a magnificent area of natural bushland just a few minutes North of Heyfield on the Tinamba-Glenmaggie Road. Set on approximately 50 acres of land managed by Parks Victoria and maintained by Gippsland Mountain Bike Club, Blores Hill MTB boasts an array of trails specifically designed for mountain bike riders. There are many trails of different styles and difficulties, ranging from beginners to the most experienced with many features including, jumps, bridges, rocky outcrops, technical elements and flowing trails throughout the beautiful bushland.
You Yangs Regional Park – 55km south-west of Melbourne and 22km north of Geelong – is fast becoming a Mecca for mountain bikers. The Park boasts a fifty-kilometre network of purpose-built tracks of varying length and levels, from easy open dirt roads to tight, technical single-track and an extreme downhill not for the faint hearted.
BUXTON MTB PARK
Buxton Mountain Bike Park is situated approximately 100 km north east of Melbourne. There is approximately 20 km of purpose built mountain bike single track in the park that can be ridden in a number of different length loops. The trails are ridden in one direction and are signed accordingly.
The trails are characterised by gentle climbs and fast flowing descents. When ridden with care, the majority of trails are suitable for riders of all abilities, but when ridden faster, the tracks are more challenging.
Double this up after a lap of Buxton, not far from Marysville, the 10km loop called Granite Grind that starts and finishes in the main complex car park. There's less flow, more rocks and more technical challenges than at Buxton. The loop starts uphill, finishes uphill, and has some sections in between that would intimidate beginners, challenge intermediates and keep the experts interested.
The Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail is an iconic 40 km recreation trail for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The trail follows the path of the historical railway line through the stunning Yarra Valley starting behind Lilydale Railway Station and finishing in the Warburton township.
Upon first look there doesn't appear to be much going on out here, but after some exploration we have found some Gems.
North of the store you find the hills, we are at the side of the Dandenong Ranges of Gembrook and Emerald after a climb, or simply ride the rolling hills of Beaconsfield and Harkaway.
To the South we have some flat windy loops that will guarantee to make you strong.
Pop into our store or give us a call for more information.
