Join us for a great weekend of test rides on the latest mountain bikes from Specialized, Canyon, Intense & Rocky Mountain. Find out first hand how the bikes ride and quiz their expertly trained staff with any questions you have about sizing, build options, or whatever else is on your mind.
Falls Creek’s backcountry trails provide amazing riding across the top of Victoria. Breathtaking scenery. Adventurous spirit. Fainters Track riders enjoy a Blue Dirt Shuttle from Mt Beauty Bakery back to Falls Creek. Shuttle departs Mt Beauty 1.30pm to get you back to the resort by 2.30-3:00pm – enough time for more riding or relax with a beer in front of the fire pit. Riders need to be self sufficient > ride packs, food, spares, water, tubes, etc. All social rides will have a ride co-ordinator (sweep rider). Maps will be provided for all riders so they can ride at their own pace.
Fainters Track (rated Black - 50km)
The big daddy of backcountry rides. 50km from Falls Creek resort to Mt Beauty. Advanced skills and high level of fitness required. Climb over five peaks, 4 of which are over 1800m. A half kilometre rock garden with a sheer drop over the edge. Technical climbs. Technical descents. Massive views. Take on the Big Hill Downhill on your final descent – a drop of 1,100m alone to Mt Beauty. FLOW Mountain Bike says, “The ride from Falls Creek down to Mount Beauty is a real life changer. Fainters Track must be one of the best backcountry adventure rides in the country. Blown away! ”. Departs from Village Bike Café Saturday @ 8am
High Country Huts (rated Green – 20km)
Enjoy a gentle 20km ride across the high plains along aqueduct trails and fire road. Suitable for beginner/novice riders and people who just love to ride through beautiful places. Stop at historic huts, view wild flowers and sprawling plains. Cruise through snowgums and watch trout jump out of the water in the aqueducts. Departs from Village Bike Café Sunday 24th @ 10am; returns back to resort at 12.30pm.
