Berri MTB group have mapped out a magnificent ride alongside the Murray River to lock 4 and Katarapko creek area. We have marked it with pink cloth at the moment but plan to put in pine posts. DENR have ok'd the course. Approx time 2 - 4 hrs. Excellent cliff views at bookpurnong sandbar, have a swim if hot, lock area is sensational, outdoor toilet facility available, log crossing to get to Katarapko Weir. Flat easy ride through creek beds and gum trees. Easier track for kids/family to lock and back takes approx 1-2 hrs. Berri is 2-3 hrs from Adelaide. Stay overnight at Berri Resort Hotel or Berri Riverside Caravan Park. We are designing other tracks for your enjoyment eg Katarapko Creek, full length, 4-5 hr ride. Calperum Station sand track 3-4 hr. We encourage MTB enthusiasts to come and enjoy the Riverland. Google Katarapko game reserve to see area. Happy riding.

The Adelaide Mountain Bike Club forum is pretty active, not just for racing but other riding too, so I'd recommend getting on there and finding some rides and riders.

Hi all!

I'm quite new in Adelaide and recently upgraded my Mountain Bike. I would like to discover places where to ride but also to meet people riding relatively in a regular basis. Are people meeting every weekend (Saturday/Sunday) in the Meeting Places? In which meeting places? In summary, how it works?

Thanks.
Jordi

Meeting & riding by Jordi (guest), 17 Jun 2011 03:18

Could maybe get her started with the WAGS rides lead by one of the girls from Adelaide MTB club, refer forum link below. There aimed at getting girls into MTB.

Prospect Hill around the Forestry HQ is pretty easy riding, you'll definitely get bored, but then you could zip up the hill for a few laps of the Prospect Hill XC race track after, the trail crew have been busy cleaning it up so it's good to go.
Refer Prospect Hill Map 2 for Forestry HQ area.
Refer Prospect Hill Map 1 for XC race track.

Could get her onto one of Welshie's skills days. http://www.escapegoat.com.au

Thanks Jonny, I'll have to look into that one, a lot of Mt Crawford is legal so I'll have to check that bit out. Not all of the Heysen trail is illegal for bikes, just the good bits. :-)

Join the revolution… www.samba.asn.au (South Australian Mountain Bike Association). We need all the help we can get for better access.

hiya! i finally bought my girl a MBike, she is learning as not yet confident, where would be the best tracks/place to take her so she can get better and i can too have some fun. it get boring sometimes as i want to go hard n fast, leaving her behind, ending up annoying! i want her to learn fast!..
so where would be the best xc trail, not crowded either!

Thanx

basic challenging trail for girlfriend by pnut (guest), 07 Jun 2011 22:11

There's a short 4.4km trail from Centennial Drive to the top of Mt Crawford. The 2.2km climb looks OK and well worth what must be a scream of a 2.2km descent. Has anyone ridden it? I know its not strictly legal as its part of the Heysen Trail but as I'm not from Australia I think it must be time for a bit of European revolt and surely "after dark everywheres legal". Also are there other routes that could be added to the summit climb?
Thanks

I was hoping to write up a little shameless self promotion about my site mytrails.com.au

It's all about getting people outside and active by sharing trails with the rest of the Australian cycling community. You can either upload or draw your trails in the browser and then share them how ever you wish. (or you can keep them private). It's very easy to do. It also has many features that rival it's competition.

If anything I'd love for you to just take a look and let me know what you think otherwise it's free to use.

The url is: http://www.mytrails.com.au

Before you pass this off as spam I'd like to say that my site is completely free and will always be free forever. I'm asking for nothing apart for your feedback. I only wish for this site to be a good resource for anyone who wishes to be adventurous and explore different parts of Australia.

PS: My Trails is also running a competition where you can win a bike computer (funded by yours truly) :D

SAMBA by sambasamba, 11 Oct 2010 10:38

Hi Guys,

I've received heaps of good feedback and have spent the last month implementing the most popular requests:

- Ability to draw your own trails (for people without GPS devices)
- Fullscreen mode
- Location search & Trails close by (you'll be able to see other trails that are close to the area you're looking at)
- Overlays: Youtube, Panoramio, Wikipedia and Webcams
- Descriptions for trails
- Other Bug fixes

As this site is still very new I'd love:

1. People to upload/draw their trails to share with others.
2. Any feedback about the site - good and bad. (any features you'd like to see).

Looking forward to your trails and comments.
