Tasmania's Launceston Mountain Bike Club back in 2008 created an all-weather track just outside town for the multitude of races the club runs each year. Gravel was purchased and laid using an excavator courtesy of the Ground Effect Slush Fund.
Launceston boasts three riding spots near town: Trevallyn Nature Recreation Area; Kate Reed Nature Recreation Area; and Hollybank Forest. Plus it's only a 90 minute drive to the Blue Derby trail network. Follow the club on Facebook.
