In fact, browsing Cycling Trails Australia feels more like sitting down with a new Aussie mate for a chat than surfing the internet.
The site supplies details on 12 epic bike adventures in Australia with an ‘ in-depth, full-on, all-you-need-to-know, but not-complete-hand-holding, and somewhat informal, guide to the local trail conditions.’
Lastly, Cycle Trails Australia tells you what it’s likely to cost.
The site includes helpful summaries of each of the 12 suggested rides. As an example, here’s the overview for the Jutpurra National Park ride from Kalkarindji to Timber Creek, Northern Territory:
Great rugged 4WD track riding through remote country in the heart of the Jutpurra (Gregory) National Park for those liking some solitude. A challenge for those who appreciate, and are prepared, for the really tough mountain bike stuff. Maybe two 4WDs a day traverse the track in the short time it’s open each year. Not many others out there at all. The ownership of the national park was returned to the aboriginal people and the park renamed in May 2010 but has been leased back to the government.
More details follow plus a useful route map of each trail.
This site is well organized and the great photos make it a pleasure to browse.
Cycle Trails Australia is perhaps the best starting point for information and inspiration on biking Australia. Have a browse and get inspired for your epic outback adventure.
