    Mt Beauty and Falls Creek Shuttle Weekend 19th 20th JAN

    Hey crew,

    There will be a shuttle weekend on the 19th and 20th January shuttling Big Hill MTB park in Mt Beauty both days and there will also be a shuttle option to take you from Mt Beauty to Falls Creek or the top of Mt McKay to ride some of the amazing trails flowing back down to Mt Beauty for all those All Mountain/XC riders out there.

    This trip is limited to 20 riders so get in quick to book a spot. Bookings essential.

    There are 2 main trail routes we recommend you take from Falls Creek to Mt Beauty, each of which will take between 4-7 hours to complete and will see you climb to an elevation of 1885m (6184ft) finishing with an epic descent down to 365m (1,216ft) Total elevation drop of 1520m! These rides will suit intermediate to advanced riders only. There is a guided option or you can just use the shuttle to do it solo provided you have reliable gear, phone, first aid, supplies etc. Our shuttle will meet riders at a pre organised meeting point in Mt Beauty. For more info and specific details on these rides email: ride@bluedirt.com.au

    You can choose where you ride and on what day. I recommend doing one of the amazing All Mountain rides from Falls to Beauty one day and spend the next riding XC and DH in the Big Hill MTB park!

    1 day shuttles only: $60.00 per rider
    2 Day Shuttles only: $100.00 per rider

    Package deal: $250.00 per rider - Includes: 1 nights shared cabin accommodation, 2 days of shuttles.

    Hey guys and gals!

    If you have never ridden the trails at Mt Beauty, they are epic! There are cross country tracks that will test out even the fittest riders and there are DH runs that will leave your arms burning at the end!

    Here is a quick clip I found from last years VDHS round they held there:

    Absolutely awesome weekend was had on the trails. A big thanks goes out to all the riders who came along and tacked the Big Hill MTB Park and our incredible 'Fainters' 50km All Mountain ride!

    Below is a pic of the guys about to tackle the 'Fainter' ride on Sunday (The ride traverses the ridge line in the background!!)

    I saw the yellow bike at the mtb park on the saturday. We were in the area and I dropped in to check out the trailhead. Didn't have my bike with me unfortunately!
    The twenty-nine inch wheel.
