The Melrose Fat Tyre Festival is something special: organic, welcoming, laid back, this is what mountain bike events should be all about! The FTF and Melrose hold are very special to us, and if you make the trip there, it’ll have your heart too.

Beautiful trails, benched into the hillsides of South Australian pastures.

This June long weekend is the 15th Melrose Fat Tyre Festival, and they’re celebrating by giving the FTF a theme that reflects the values of the great Melrose community: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! That’s the theme of this year’s Melrose Fat Tyre Festival where mountain bikers and friends from around Australia will be getting together to celebrate Mother Earth on our bikes

Melrose has long been known for its chilled atmosphere and its inclusive nature

The Fat Tyre Festival and Melrose has long been known for its chilled atmosphere and its inclusive nature, where racing is secondary to relaxing, where the motor is overwhelmed by the pedal and the only fire of competition is the story around the campfire.
