THE ALPINE ISSUE
If you’re planning a trip to the awesome Australian Alps this summer don’t miss our great guide to what to ride, where to stay and how to get the very best from trail time in Thredbo, Falls Creek, Mt Buller and Baw Baw. Whether you want downhill delights or cross-country excitement - we’ve done all the research, so you have more time to simply get on and ride.
Mountain biking could exist without mountains, but what visit to the mountains feels right without a mountain bike? Big peaks, deep valleys, long descents and panoramic vistas are inextricably part of what makes mountain biking great. Images and stories from high places draw us in, as bikes and riders are dwarfed by the scale of the landscape in which they play.
The Alpine Issue celebrates big mountains, and Australia’s alpine areas are alive in summer with people who enjoy the outdoors by bike and by foot.
Big rides in these places leave us more vulnerable but also reward the planning and preparation. Whether you’re considering a trip to one of the great alpine bike parks, or looking to put together something even more epic – read on and enjoy our Alpine Issue.
