A Jour­ney Best Shared

PORT TO PORT TURNS FIVE

Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape - WORDS: ZOE BINDER

Port to Port cel­e­brated it’s 5th birth­day this year and it brought some fan­tas­tic trails to the party of over 400 rid­ers. For me, the at­trac­tion of moun­tain bik­ing all be­gins with the peo­ple who you do it with. This is with­out doubt the rea­son that Port to Port is such a suc­cess. The flow of the trails is equalled by the stream of end­less happy faces com­ing swirling around cor­ners, and through the twists in the typ­i­cal Aus­tralian bush set­ting. Not only is this a place where the elite of the sport can hit it out in a world-class race, but crowds of mates, mums, dads and peo­ple from all walks of life can come to­gether and ex­pe­ri­ence the to­geth­er­ness that is only felt through shar­ing a jour­ney.

A hunt for ad­ven­ture.

A col­lec­tive ex­pe­ri­ence.
