      The Tathra Mountain Bike Club is a team of community minded matured aged enthusiasts, who hope to make Mountain Biking a readily available activity for locals and visitors to the area.

      The tracks were started in 2001 by Andy Johnson after he rode local wallaby tracks, the Bermagui Dirt Surfers Track and learnt about the IMBA standard of track design. After construction of the 'Poo Ponds' loop, Andy was joined by other enthusiasts Aido, Linda, Smurf, Stace, Jake, Steve, Charlie and Livi slept in the car. Track improvements and extensions led to the Fireshed loop, making 15 kms of hand-made single-track.

      In 2010, Matthew Nott (local surgeon and rider) asked if the track could be extended, to stage an Event - The Tathra Enduro. In short, the entire Tathra community helped - check it out - www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMviaVxzLGU

      Since then, Tom Park, another Track building nutter moved to Tathra. Under the philosity of 'not going to bed unless you are tired'. Tathra now has approx. 53 kms of track including 45 kms of hand-made sweet flowing single-track. All of this is within 5 kms of the beach and Tathra's town centre, meaning - ride from your accommodation and hit the water after the ride.
