Stromlo Forest Park is located only 10min drive from Canberra and is a world-class multi-use, recreational sporting facility available to both recreational and professional users. There is a purpose built event pavilion, which holds bathroom facilities, including showers, all surrounded by a vast network of mountain bike tracks to suit any level of rider!
This is a racing and riding weekend to bring along family and friends – we will be able to block off traffic from the pavilion area so that also the kids can roam around freely and have a ball on their bikes and running around. It's very family-friendly with a kids playground and we'll arrange for a few more surprises (we're thinking jumping castle, face painting...) to keep them busy and happy. There will also be short fun-races & competitions for them, but you still need to have someone there to look after them. However, we can guarantee you, they will be tired that night :-)
How to get to the event location:
