Southern Peaks

Event Information

Southern Peaks 50km – Presented by Act Belong Commit

Southern Peaks 37km – Presented by Impulse Cycles

Southern Peaks is a cross country MTB race over either 37km or 50km.

Starting at the stunning Maitraya Private Resort travelling over some of the most stunningly beautiful coastline the region has to offer. Maitraya Private Resort is normally closed to the public so, this is the only time you can ride around this beautiful pristine estate.

Thanks to the Dept of Parks and Wildlife the route then travels through more breathtaking coastal scenery to the highly anticipate Emu Point channel crossing where riders are ferried across surprisingly quickly! The route then travels through a variety of sneaky single track, gruelling climbs and the ‘hidden’ highlights of central Albany where the 37km riders finish in the Albany Town Square Event Village.

50km riders continue from the Albany Town Square Event Village delivering even more challenging climbs, steep descents and all round amazing views from the top of Mt Melville. Riders finish up back at the Albany Town Square Event Village for celebrations and well-deserved beverage!
