About the project

Research has shown that many people ride a mountain bike for mental & physical health benefits. Mountain biking provides the opportunity for people to socialise and connect with nature. The activity of mountain biking needs natural areas and places to ride. Some mountain bike trails are shared use, used by walkers, trail runners and horses.

Many mountain bike trail networks have been damaged or impacted by bushfires raging across the country. Clubs play an integral role in the construction, maintenance, management and provision of these trails, in partnership with land managers and other stakeholders. This fundraising campaign will raise funds to assist affected clubs and their members to assess trail damage and work to reinstate & repair the trails and supporting infrastructure. A survey of clubs in the bushfire regions will provide details of what clubs need to help with this repair work when the community and land managers are ready. This may include trail maintenance equipment & tools (rakes, shovels, mattocks, clinometers etc) or hiring machinery to assist with clearing debris or repairing trails.
