Alice Springs and the Red Centre give those who love to tackle the terrain on two wheels a massive playground of open hills and sublime single-track to choose from.
With an expanding network of trails in all directions, you can hire a mountain bike (or bring your own), take a more gentle route exploring the historic sites on a bicycle or gear up for a world-class biking event by registering for Outback Cycling Easter or The Redback.
Outback Cycling, located at the Telegraph Station and in the Todd Mall, offer sound local advice to get you started on your mountain biking or cycling adventure. If you look at what the locals are riding – those in the know ride bikes with tubeless tyres with lots of sealant. A mid-level tread tyre with good sidewall protection gives you a good balance of easy rolling, traction and protection from the rocks. A modern and full-suspension cross country/trail bike is perfect for these trails. Remember when riding in the Red Centre, carry more water than you normally would.
