Mountain Bike Festival Program

Falls Creek Nov 19-20, 2016

Flowtown Grand Opening

Ignition celebrates the grand opening of Falls Creek’s newest trail “Flowtown”. Believe the hype. Flowtown connects to trails off the summit for a 10km single-track descent all the way down to the resort gates at Howmans Gap!!

Gravity Shuttles

Blue Dirt’s shuttle service is now extended to include pick-ups from Howmans Gap and the Village Bike Café in the resort’s centre. Ride any trail combinations you like. Get picked up in either location for a pedal free ride to the top. Repeat. Shuttles run non-stop 9am – 4pm both days. Click here for more shuttle information

Backcountry Rides

Falls Creek’s backcountry trails provide amazing riding across the top of Victoria. Breathtaking scenery. Adventurous spirit. Fainters Track and Timms Spurs 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 2.15pm – 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.
