Maydena's Gravity Fest Event is nearly here


If you're planning a trip to the Apple Isle, April 27-29 would be a good time to go, to coincide with Maydena Bike Park's first ever Gravity Fest Event.

The Canyon Bikes Ultimate Flow Challenge, SRAM Air DH and Krush Oz Tech Assault are just some of the events to be held over the three days, with Friday night reserved for a pump track chellange and Saturday night for a whip-off comp.

The event closes out with The Summit afterparty - a night at Maydnena's amazing Eagle Eyrie, 1100m above sea level. There's food, bar and a DJ, and tickets are available at Maydena Park.


And if you're worried about the cooler weather affecting the event, rest assured the park is doing everything it can - it's even flying in gravel with a helicopter to weather-seal its trails!

Event entries are available for the full event, or individual event days, with entries closing Midnight April 23rd. Enter now by clicking here!

"You can bring any bike .... So long as it's made from steel, has downtube shifters, and an '86 model or older." That was the general jist of the eighth annual Noosa Strada Bianche, an inspiring event held in the glorious environs on the weekend of August 11 & 12.

In this fascinating article Bicycling Australia contributor Stephanie Constand details the rise and rise of young German sprinter Pascal Ackermann ... a rider sure to be going shoulder to shoulder with Australia's Caleb Ewan over the next few years.

Now less than two weeks away, more than 1100 riders are expected on the start line of the Noosa Classic, Bicycling Australia's first Gran Fondo Cycling event for the Sunshine State of Queensland.
