Excitingly, Round 2 of our Cross Country series will be run by our Mountain Biking Brothers and Sisters over in Denmark ! They have chosen a great course, quite different from our offerings here in Albany, and it will be an excellent chance to ride somewhere new. Full information is below including rego link, so get on board now !
The Bikes and Beats Cross Country is back, with many changes from last year. This year we are going with a standard cross country format and combining with Albany MTB Club (2019 Club XC – Round 2 : Denmark). This year’s course is perfect for juniors and adults trying mountain biking for the first time, but will give a good work out for the more serious riders.
