Mountain Biking in Australia
"Discover Mountain Trails in Australia"
Rugged Terrain and Picturesque Rides
Australia has had a big following of mountain biking for quite a few decades. Tour de France winner Cadell Evans famously grew up racing mountain bikes and attributes his endurance to this event.
Allocated Mountain Bike Trails can be found all over Australia with some highly developed 'runs' catering for those just starting out, those just looking for a fun ride up through the skill levels to the highly technical trackes and downhills.
Some Trails even have chair lifts and/or utilise snow filed ski lifts for getting to the top of some hair raising runs.
