Alternatively you can sign up for an annual MTBA membership – a portion of each membership fee goes to the Albany Mountain Bike Club, helping us run more events like this, and to purchase much needed equipment!
Open to anyone age 13 or over! Junior riders 15 and over should pick a grade appropriate to their skill level.
If you’re new to cycling, or a bit nervous about mountain biking, we are offering a shortened version of the race so that you can have a go ! Course will be the same, but over a reduced time frame.
Carpark off Serpentine Road, opposite Lion Street.
Please be courteous when parking, and pay attention to volunteers, and respect private residents on adjoining properties.
