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‘? Check out what other events are on that weekend here, including the ‘re-imagined’ Floriade!
Rocky Trail Event Line-Up
Rocky Trail’s Superflow is “Racing the way you Ride”. This will be run under the new Rocky Trail Async Racing(TM) banner. One of three race days and specific start slots to pick so that our rider field spreads out.
Ride up at your own pace. Drop in with your buddies on each others tyre or leave a space to pin. It’s about doing party trains, railing berms and SENDING IT!
This event will be run on a figure eight race track at Sparrow Hill & Kowen Forests and
under the new Rocky Trail Async Racing(TM) format across 2 days and with time start slots.
Each half of the figure eight has its own mat start – you can have a break in between laps to self-support as spectators and supporters are not allowed in the start area.
This is cross-country endurance lap racing at its best! From the first time between the tape to people that have spent a lifetime training for power output, we have you covered when you line up at the Rocky Trail start line!
“A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink.”
This is Rocky Trail’s women’s only MTB and trail running race.
Be ready for an event that is loaded with the kind of electrifying energy, which is created when strong women get together to race and let their female spirits soar!
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.
Enjoy your time in the Capital!
