Maydena closes but here’s how you can still support them

Maydena Bike Park has made the difficult decision to close its doors to the public due to the ever-changing COVID-19 pandemic. 

The announcement was made via Facebook on Sunday, 22 March informing riders that the popular Tasmanian trails would be closed until at least 26 September. 

There is however a way you can continue to support them.  

While trails will be off limits for the next six months, Maydena are offering some massive discounts on bookings after 26 September. 

- 30% off first 50 bookings 
- 20% off the following 100 bookings 
- 10% off all other bookings 

For those not ready to make a booking yet, they are running a special deal on vouchers/credits- $50, $100 and $200 vouchers/credits will have +10% added ($200 voucher will be bumped up to $220 value). 

Booking a MTB holiday to places like Maydena is just one way we can all support the industry through this very trying time. 

There will also likely be some brand-new trails for you to experience as well with a Dirt Art crew set to be sent in to work on new projects. This week will already see major upgrades of Skyline, Pandani and Big Hips.

You can read the full statement provided by Maydena Bike Park below: 

While we currently believe the risk to our staff and patrons is extremely low, we have made the decision to close following tomorrow. Our final day of opening this season will be March 22- we are open tomorrow! 

This virus is having a horrific health, humanitarian and economic impact on the world. We do not want to risk playing any role in making the situation worse. 

It is our belief that now is the time to socially isolate, take a deep breath and be ready to emerge stronger when this is all over. 

Tomorrow will be your last chance to ride with us until September 26th. If we don’t see you tomorrow, we look forward to seeing you in the spring! We’ll be announcing a whole host of events and activities for next season over coming days and weeks- stay tuned! 

All riders with bookings beyond tomorrow will be contacted- if you can please avoid contacting us. We are extremely busy working through this process. Any understanding in accepting a credit (with a 15% bonus credit and no end date) is greatly appreciated.

At 6:22am on Saturday morning a hardy group of riders climbed onto their bikes and set off on one of the most gruelling solo cycling challenges on Earth. Just 36hrs later they had to stop as the borders were about to be closed.
