Rocky Trail Entertainment has had a love-affair with racing in Canberra for over a decade. Stromlo Forest Park holds very personal memories for the team – our founders got engaged there after an adventure race many (many, many) years ago and since then we’ve loved re-discovering the ever expanding trail networks in the Capital!
What makes Canberra such a cycle friendly city? Is it the designated bike lanes on the main roads, or the extensive network of bike paths weaving their way throughout the city? We reckon it’s the range of cafes and venues that position themselves as ‘bike friendly’, or the year-round calendar of popular cycling events, including Rocky Trail’s line-up for Canberra every year!
Why not make it a weekend getaway to the Capital with us? There are so many things to see and do off the race track. There are a lot of spots for ‘bike-lovers‘ in Canberra and why not go on a hunt for the perfect ‘Instagram Moment‘? Make the most of your stay and check out what else is on while you’re in town.
For travel and other Covid related advice please visit the ACT Government website. You obviously need to be allowed to travel to the ACT in order to race.
FIND MORE THAN YOU CAME FOR
Iconic national attractions; riding Mount Stromlo’s bike trails; sipping the cool-climate Shiraz. Canberra offers the peak experience.
It’s the best of Australia, brought together for you.
Embrace the cold!
Okay yes, Canberra gets pretty cold in Winter, we get that. So why not go with it?! Roasting marshmallows, foraging for truffles, making a snowman – these are things that you just can’t do in Summer people! Make the most of it!
It is the Capital after all…
The National Library, the National Film and Sound Archive, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery, not to mention the Royal Mint, Questacon, Parliament House (both old and new). Why not take the chance to take a journey through our history, our future, our legends, and find YOUR story? (Plus many of them are free entry – bonus!)
Live performances in the city centre, free film screenings, Roller Derby, the Canberra Comedy Festival, or how about a whodunit at Old Parliament House after dark?! There’s always something going on.
