Southern Peaks 50km
Southern Peaks 37km
Southern Peaks is a cross country MTB race over either 37km or 50km.
In 2017 the course started 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 travelled through more breathtaking coastal scenery to the highly anticipate Emu Point channel crossing where riders were ferried across! The route then travelled through a variety of sneaky single track, gruelling climbs and the ‘hidden’ highlights of central Albany where the 37km riders finished in the Albany Town Square Event Village.
50km riders continued 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 finished up back at the Albany Town Square Event Village for celebrations and well-deserved beverage!
Stay tuned to hear what the 2018 Southern Peaks course will entail!
