Mountain bike riders will be challenged; “Must Watch Ride”
Right on our doorstep is a 2.5 km sealed, level bike track that will take you to Mogareeka Inlet and the Bega River.
Ride on over the bridge and you will find some great fire trails through Mimosa Rocks National park and the state forests.
One kilometre north you can access the Doolagharl mountain bike single track. These recently extended tracks now comprise 3 graded climbs and 3 graded descents. This is beautifully groomed flowing high quality sweet single track. If you want more head to the top of town and ride the 8 kilometres of flowing Fire Shed trails.
The Tathra MTB Enduro is a mountain biking odyssey that extends from the Doolagharl trails into state forests and the stunning Mimosa National Park. The event staged annually in March offers a choice of a 20km, a 50km and a 100km race. The event is a collaboration between the local mountain bike club (Wilderness Coast and Snow Mountains MTB Inc) and environmental group Clean Energy for Eternity (CEFE). Profits from the Tathra Enduro will go towards helping Tathra achieve its 50/50 by 2020 target through the provision of solar panels for local service organisations.
Tathra Beach House has been the starting point on a number of occasions for cyclists riding from the ocean to the top, Tathra to Kosciusko, a fantastic challenge. If you don’t think you could ride up, perhaps the return, Kosciusko to Tathra?
Tathra Beach and Bike with its remodelled premises, offers an expanded range of quality bikes to hire or purchase, along with a full mechanical workshop for repairs and servicing. An additional benefit for customers is shop’s test ride facility, giving clients the opportunity to trial a potential new bike on the local trails.
Held annually in the third week of January, the Tathra Wharf to Waves Weekend holds a mountain bike ride from Bega to Tathra Beach. Mountain biking enthusiasts can take on the 30km bush track from Bega through State Forest trails, over Dr George Mountain, through a pocket of the Mimosa National Parks – riding through some of the most breathtaking bush land scenery the Sapphire Coast has to offer.
The event finishes at the Tathra Surf Club where a BBQ and cold refreshments are available and major random prizes are drawn.
Among the prizes each year is the chance to win a state-of-the-art Tathra Beach and Bike Mountain Bike. Visit www.tathrawharf2waves.com.au
