Your next off-road adventure

Escape the grind of the big smoke and let loose at this action packed weekend adventure. Imagine the sound of your tyres crunching over the ground, the smell of dust hanging in the air and the feeling of mud splashing your legs.

Gravel Grit Laguna offers two ride options, 67km and 76km, with something for riders rolling on everything from their trusty steel workhorse, gravel grinder or a full mountain bike set up. Take your next ride off the beaten track and deep into the heart of the Olney State Forest – NSW’s gravel riding mecca.

What's new in 2019

Gravel Grit Laguna highlights
Things just got a little more interesting…

The brand new weekend pass includes overnight camping, dinner at the Great Northern Trading Post, BBQ breakfast and more time to explore the roads less ridden through the beautiful Hunter Valley region.

As always, day trippers who grab a Sunday ride pass will enjoy a tasty feed, great riding and a whole lot of fun on the bike.

Olney State Forest

Olney State Forest is a gravel mecca located just 45 minutes from Newcastle, less than two hours from Sydney and a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the big smoke.

Gravel Grit isn’t your average Sunday bunchie. You’ll take a ride off the beaten track and enjoy some of NSW’s best gravel riding while fully supported by Team Bicycle Network.

Kudos to the legends at Flow Mountain Bike for providing some snaps from a recent adventure through the region.
