Black Hill being only minutes from the centre of Ballarat, is the spot for downhill in town. The tracks vary in level, and with so many sections, you can put together your own run to suit your abilities. All the tracks at Black Hill are push up runs, with a maximum 10 minute walk from the bottom to the start of the DH runs. So no need to organise a shuttle vehicle, just bring your bike and your gear and you are ready to go for the day.
