New Kingborough Mountain Bike Park
News

A new MTB park is being constructed down near the Kingborough Sports Centre.

Their is a sketch map of the proposed single trail on the counter at Treadlies, and some tantalising posts about the upcoming tracks from DirtArt on both Pedalbite.com and also on their facebook page.

According to the posts, the park will have 2km+ of single track flow trails developed in a series of loops, providing numerous different loop options.  There will be two short descents in the network, one of which will have more of a jump/berm focus.  The focus of the network is on skill development and fun. 

There will also be a jump park in stage one, with stage two development of a pump track and skills park, along with potential to develop more singletrack as well.

The eventual aim is to tie the network in with surrounding shared-use trails to link to Mt Wellington, Snug Tiers etc.
