We’re already very excited about 2018. The opening of Maydena Bike Park, a shuttle-accessed gravity park just 1:15 drive from Hobart, has us dreaming of brake burning Whistler-esque descents that are, as yet, unheard of in Australia. The Maydena Collective Membership Program launches this week which offers lifetime park memberships with a load of exclusive benefits.


Why so excited?

We visited Maydena earlier in the year and what really struck us, was the size of that hill! 820 vertical metres from the town centre to the summit bar and cafe makes Maydena the tallest bike park in Australia. We won’t be riding to the top, either. A year round shuttle service delivers riders to the summit, where they’ll have 30+km of gravity fed trails to choose from on opening day, with another 90km planned over the coming years.

Imagine the airtime on an 820vm descent! That’s twice the elevation of Mt Mystic in Bright.

The bike park is being designed and built by Dirt Art, a company founded in Tasmania, who carry a lot of credibility when it comes to gravity oriented trails. The Hero Trail in Bright’s Mystic Mountain Bike Park quickly got our adrenaline pumping and Thredbo’s All Mountain Track showed us how a fun, flowing descent can just keep going and going. Keep in mind Maydena will be 200m taller than Thredbo, so we can’t wait to experience the variety of trails that Dirt Art create on such a canvas.

Maydena Bike Park is offering a limited number of lifetime memberships to their ‘Collective’. Astute riders who appreciate the epicness of Maydena have the opportunity to secure deals and special offers covering everything from a merch pack to uplift discounts and a VIP shuttle queue. Collective members can feel good too because their investment will help fund even better trails come opening day, which is scheduled for January 26th 2018.

A quaint little town, with something exciting brewing in those hills!

If you live in Tasmania or can see yourself heading there on a regular basis, we think the Maydena Collective memberships are well worth checking out. Find more details in the official press release below, including how you could be in the running for the ‘Golden Ticket’.


Maydena Collective Membership Program Launch

The Maydena Bike Park is a large-scale, year-round gravity-based bike park, located in stunning wilderness in Tasmania’s Derwent Valley, a 1:15 hour drive from Hobart. The park is being developed by renowned trail building company, Dirt Art. The park will provide a year-round uplift service, accessing an eventual 120+km of gravity-based trails.

Simon French, the man behind Dirt Art and some of Australia’s best gravity trails, proudly showed us his biggest project yet.

Maydena Bike Park is pleased to announce the impending release of the park’s highly- anticipated membership program, the Maydena Collective. The Collective program replaces a traditional season pass system with a unique lifetime membership program, which offers a large range of discounts and special offers. Collective memberships are available only in limited numbers, and once sold out the offer will not be repeated. Available at both a Premium and Standard price point, priced at $449.00 and $249.00 respectively, memberships provide a lifetime of discounts for the member with no ongoing membership costs. A full overview of membership inclusions, additional details and terms and conditions are available at www.maydenabikepark.com.
