Biking on the Goldie
The Gold Coast is becoming known for mountain biking with a diverse range of quality trails, each offering a unique rider experience.
From eucalypt forests to rocky groins and expansive vistas, you will be rewarded each time you hit the trails.
Bike hire and servicing
Or you can stop in on your way to the trails with your own bike for repairs and servicing and get the most out of your ride.
If you’re located closer to the beach, there are also a heap of reputable bike retailers.
Mountain biking is a fast sport that comes with risk. Riders should ‘session’ trails – evaluate each trail’s suitability for their ability and their bike’s capabilities. Always wear a helmet, and other safety gear as you deem necessary. Carry water, a phone, a map (or map app like Trailforks), a spare tube and tools, a pump and a first aid kit.
Some other useful tips:
AusCycling offers a free membership trial period and can offer insurance to riders.
It’s safer to ride with friends or a club such as the Gold Coast Mountain Bike Club.
