Go deep into the heart of beautiful Olney State Forest and off the beaten track with Gravel Grit


Your next off-road adventure

Imagine the sound of your tyres crunching over the ground, the smell of dust hanging in the air or the feeling of mud splashing your legs with gravel riding.

The 2018 Gravel Grit edition offers two route options – from 67km to 76km – with something for riders rolling on everything from 700x28s to a full mountain bike get up.

Cyclists in The Watagans

Olney State Forest is a gravel mecca located just 45 minutes from Newcastle, under two hours from Sydney and a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of city streets.

Gravel Grit will take you off the beaten track, deep into the wilderness and straight to your happy place as you discover the roads less travelled.
