We will be looking at:

We want to know what you think will define Canberra as an exciting mountain biking destination and what features could be enhanced or created to improve mountain bike experiences.

Canberra is home to strong and growing mountain biking culture. Our region contains a unique diversity of trails that cater for everyone from professional mountain bike riders to first time riders wanting to improve their fitness.

You are invited to contribute ideas for creating a mountain bike trail network for our growing city. We will be considering existing mountain bike trail networks and thinking about their connectivity, identity and management. There will also be opportunities to explore options for new trails that enhance mountain bike experiences and consider our local environment and other users.
