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!
