Mountain Biking near Newcastle?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any decent mountain biking (XC or downhill) routes near Newcastle? Any local info would be really appreciated.... There doesn't seem to be much turning up under a Google search.

I seem to be talking to myself!! :daydreaming: But that's OK. Just in case someone does a search on mountain biking and Newcastle.....

 

Now found some information, which should guide any future Google searches(!):

 

Glenrock - in Newcastle

Singleton - west of Newcastle

Mt. Sugarloaf - downhill stuff

Awaba - cross country - Hunter Mountainbike Association

 

www.bikely.com - finds 12 routes in and around Newcastle - although 3 or 4 of these are mad routes - covering all of NSW.....

Hi my husband and I live in Merewether, orginally from the UK. My husband has found the tracks around Glenrock great and not tried anywhere else yet, as we arrived 6 months ago. Mt Sugarloaf looks fun and not for the faint hearted. Hope this helps a little? when do you move here?:biggrin:

We hope to be arriving ~7th May. We've got a week to settle in before work starts on the 16th May. It'll be a while before our bikes arrive though - they're being shipped groupage with Doree Bonner next week, so they will probably arrive sometime in September! We're staying in Maryville (right on the river) for the first four weeks and then going to look for rental properties.
