Six-hectare mountain bike park opens in Sydney’s Northern Beaches
Sydney’s Northern Beaches Council has opened its $2 million Bare Creek mountain bike park in Belrose featuring 1.6 kilometres of downhill bike trails, flow trails, skills and dirt jump areas, a pump track, walking trails, a dedicated access road, as well as accessible toilets, water fountains, bike maintenance stations and onsite parking for up to 40 cars.
The NSW Government funded the project and will contribute to the annual maintenance costs while Northern Beaches Council will operate the park.
Bare Creek mountain bike park was constructed by acclaimed mountain bike trail builder Dirt Art and designed with help from local mountain biking advocacy and consultancy group Trail.
Council advise “the six-hectare facility is unlike anything else in New South Wales. We look forward to residents enjoying this facility as well as professional riders from across Australia.”
A staggering 80,000 metres3 of crushed sandstone finished off with a specialised clay to keep the track stable was used to construct the track.
The track is suitable for all levels with less experienced riders being able to start on the pump track and skills area before working through a progression zone and then tackling the advanced gravity trails.
