During summer the mountain biking, downhill and pump track action is fast and fun. Take the summer bike shuttle up the mountain from Mirimbah and ride home at the end of the day. Or ride the new Alpine Epic Trail, which starts 2 km from MannaGum’s front door. If a more leisurely ride is your style, the rail trails around the Mansfield area are fantastic. Bikes for all the family can be hired at All Terrain Cycles (link), along with drop off and collection along the rail trail network.
The Australian Alpine Epic is the first IMBA accredited Epic trail in the Southern Hemisphere. Over a 40 km ride, it descends 1000 vertical meters from the top of Mt Buller into the valley below, finishing just by MannaGum.You can do the entire trail in one go or break it up into sections. Depending on fitness the trail takes between 4-8 hours to complete.
A summer bike shuttle takes you from Mirimbah store to the start of the trail. Bookings are essential.
