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 6 or over! Junior riders 15 and over should pick a grade appropriate to their skill level, but don’t be afraid to challenge yourself !
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 and see what all the fuss is about – Course will be the same, but over a reduced time frame.

Spectators are welcome but please no dogs.
