Mountain Bike – 50km

Date

Sun 29th, Oct

Race Brief

7:30am

Start Time

8:05am

Picture yourself taking on a mix of flowing single track, up-hill challenges and quick downhill runs through the Colquhoun State Forest. A hidden gem of East Gippsland, the Colquhoun is largely untouched and promises some of the best natural landscape in Victoria. Whatever you do, don’t expect to travel a clear line in this forest – at times you still need to create your own path.

Choose from the 25km, 50km or 100km Mountain Bike event, all with a balance of trail styles to provide entertainment and challenges along the way.

Step it up a notch, and take a double lap of the Colquhoun starting and finishing at Forestech off the Princes Hwy.

You can expect a mix of local treasures, descending roller coaster dips and rises, log jumps, natural stump holes, a & b line jumps, bermed corners, and timber bridges which will grant you a pathway over the forest’s many gullies. You’ll also find a fuel station on course to keep you hydrated.
