Welcome to Dubbo MTB.
We are a growing club based in Dubbo, central west NSW. We run MTB races, build and maintain trails in the Dubbo and Geurie district and hold social ride days.
Check out the calendar for race and ride events. Stay up to date with our live Facebook feed on the About page.
You can find race results under the Events tab or click here.
This is some of the riding we do.
This is the Dubbo MTB Premier Event for the Year. This event is set to run on the 25th September 2016.
A Big Thankyou to Boost Juice for becoming the major sponsor this year.
We are keeping the same categories as last year with a couple more thrown in. We'll keep you posted.
The trail fairies are a work to bring you a better trail then last year.
We are going to offer some camping at the Geurie Showground which has hot showers and toilets on offer. There will be a cost involved. NO CAMPING at the event centre as we do not have permission from the land manager.
This a 28 event calendar, starting in August and rolling through to April.
It is a combination of races, stand alone events and social rides.
The Series offers riders of all levels a variety of race and ride formats across a broad range of conditions.
These are 2 or 3 hours in duration. They are generally held on the first Sunday of the month (but not in every case, check the calendar).
This popular format of summer racing begins in November and goes through to the end of March.
The races are held on Wednesday evenings, starting at 6pm.
They usually go for between 40 and 60 minutes.
Check out the calender of events for the Super Series Races below.
Developed for the 2014/15 Series, the GC has three grades (A, B and C grade).
Structured like a golf handicap, riders attempt to better their expected average lap time in each race of the Super Series.
Thankyou to all the riders, volunteers and sponsors for making our event. Race results can be viewed here!!!
This 300 minute (5 hour) race around the Homestead and Oaks Flat Trails was held on 19th July 2015. The Homestead and Oaks Trails are linked via a trail under the Scabbins Flat Bridge. This new link creates a 15.7km loop through Eucalypt and Cyprus Pine Woodlands along Arthurville road and the Macquarie River. We have been working hard on the trail to improve the flow, and at the same time we have left some technical features and some stem biting pinch climbs to challenge riders. We think you'll be impressed.
The Dubbo 300 was round 5 of 7 of the Evocities MTB series, Australia's richest MTB Series.
Location: 3km South of Geurie along Arthurville road. Geurie is located 25km East of Dubbo.

Why not try a social ride along Tracker Riley Cycleway on Saturday 18th July. You will take in the majestic Macquarie River, pass the Taronga Western Plains Zoo entrance, ride the newly created Dundullimal MTB trail. This ride is suitable for riders of all standard, short cuts available. Or, visit:-
Check out the elevation profile of the Dubbo 300 course compared to the other Evo Cities MTB trails. There is just as much elevation on this Western Plains trail though in more short sharp bursts.

New concept for 2014. The club has partnered with Zoo2oo Foundation to ride MTB for charity.
This social ride will leave Taronga Western Plains Zoo and ride to Geurie. There, we will ride the nearly 40kms of single track before returning to the Zoo for a well earned BBQ. It's a full day, about 100kms.
It is planned for October, so watch out for more information about this ride soon.
Held on the Sunday morning of the October long weekend for the last 4 years. However, this year the committee has decided to cancel the event. The reason being to give the committee a breather after the Dubbo 300.
In the past, this event offered riders of all levels either 60, 40, 20 or 10km options.
It is a race format, however, the wide and friendly fire trails at Beni SCA mean that riders of all levels could enjoy the day together.
This race has been proudly sponsored in 2013 and 2014 by:
