Sydney MTB (Mountain Bike) Riders was formed in 2011 to bring together mountain bike riders from the Sydney city area. The Club provides a forum to bring people together and share experiences, organise rides, host visitors and introduce them to local trails, and help raise awareness of both cycling in general and mountain biking in particular. It is Sydney city's first and only club dedicated to mountain bike riders of all ages, levels, experiences and riding styles.
The clubs goals are to:
Establish a group for mountain bike riders who enjoy riding in and around the city of Sydney, including some of the National Parks close by (legal trails only!)
Provide a forum for ideas and experiences to be shared with like-minded people
Help provide resources for both new and existing riders
Organise group rides
Raise awareness of riding in the city and advocate for more trail development
Most of all, to have fun!
If you’re interested in joining the Club, you can register for an account here. It’s quick and easy – and free to sign up. There are also various Membership levels for those who wish to participate in social rides or even races – all registered through MTBA as part of our official club affiliation.
If you wish to join one of our rides you can find most of them of our meetup page.
Sydney MTB Riders also run kids school holiday camps in conjunction with Sports Camps Australia.
About Mountain biking
Mountain biking is all about having fun whilst riding off-road. While it can take extreme forms, most riders enjoy riding well within their own limits and just being in the great outdoors. Our Club was made for all levels, from the extreme to the sedate. We have everyone from serious XC (cross-country) racers including Enduro and DH (downhill) riders through to families who like exploring the flat, open trails of Sydney bushland in a leisurely fashion. We are united by a desire to share our love of the sport with like-minded people, and to encourage broader participation as a way of building relationships among the community and seeing people make time for more healthy physical activity in their schedules.
If you haven’t tried mountain-biking (or ‘mtb’ as it’s often called), it’s probably much easier than you think. You also don’t need to spend a lot of money to get started. We have people who would love to talk to you about getting started, so consider signing up to our club on the site (it’s free!) and/or joining us on Facebook for some lively (and very newcomer-friendly) discussion.
