Some of Melbourne's best
You Yangs & Brisbane Ranges
Located just 50 minutes from Melbourne the You Yangs is the city’s off-road bike riding mecca. The extensive network of trails offers family-friendly options if you’re looking for an introduction to mountain biking as well as more challenging and technical routes for more experienced riders.
The long haul (91km ride option) also takes in the stunning Brisbane Ranges National Park. A hidden gem of gravel – riders should expect challenging pinches and technical high speed descents. Throw in stunning rock formations and an abandoned gold town from the 1850’s and you’re sure to be rewarded for every one of those 91kms of riding.
