      For fast-flowing single-track, with some challenges, and great downhill runs, Canberra’s Sparrow Hill Mountain Bike Park is hard to beat.

      Only 11km from Queanbeyan on the Kings Highway, Sparrow Hill caters for all levels of social riding and cross-country racing on well-marked and maintained tracks.

      Mums and dads with kids who have distance limits might take on the family friendly 5km loop, while others with more developed skills and stamina can choose marked loops ranging from 16km to 40km-plus. The die-hards who just don’t know when to stop can put together a 50km run.

      For those who like to mix-n-match or make their ride fit a time limit, it’s easy to set your own distance by taking advantage of the numerous links to a variety of loops.
