Maydena Bike Park is the destination on everyone's lips right now. The buzz around this place is massive, and with good reason: it's going to be off its head!

The Maydena Bike Park crew have been working like dirty trail building dogs, pumping out a huge amount of trail ahead of the 26 January opening date. As you can see, it looks ridiculously good. Moving to Tassie, anyone?

So what will be open come January 26? 

A lot! The first stage of the 20+ trail gravity network is just about complete, with the finishing touches underway in readiness for open day. This includes the first stage of jump trails, offering a wide range of jump options for beginner through to pro-line trails.

There’s been a lot of talk about the hand built nature of many of the trails, and come opening day eight or more hand built trails will be ready to roll, providing a more natural, technical trail experience.

Team, this place is going to be sick. Can you believe just how insanely good Tasmania has become for mountain biking in just a few years? It’s mind blowing.

In addition to all out gravity trails, there are two contouring link trails that will be completed for open day. These  allow the network to be ridden in a ‘trail riding’ fashion, taking longer to get down the hill, for those who may be a little overwhelmed by the massive 820m vertical offered in the park.

The multiple building fit outs are nearly complete too, which will house the park’s two cafe and beer garden. Plus a massive pump track will be in place, fully asphalted, of course.
