    Default Good places for riding in canberra?

    Hey guys
    Recently i bought a bike with the intention of getting back into riding, more specifically downhill/trail riding, but i am lost for places and find it hard to get back into riding. I live in northside canberra but dont know where to begin my search.

    Of course there is mount stromlo but that is too far out of the way, mount ainsiley was my first place but had no lucl please give me some ideas/suggestions! Any help/tips will be much appreciated
    Thanks, Jesse

    Of all the places in Australia that are stacked with places to ride, Canberra is it for me. Do you have transport to get your bike to a track or are you riding from home?
    There is so much riding at Stromlo at Majura Pines, you are very spoilt for choice.

    Do yourself a favour and get over to Majura Pines. Google it for all you need to know.

    last weekend at least, a lot of Majura was closed off.

    bruce ridge looking a bit scrappy with trees down and lingering puddles. still fine for a run though :)

    kowen is fine, just muddy patches

    haven't been to stromlo for a few weeks.

    plenty of choices in Canberra. Stromlo, Bruce Ridge, Majura Pines, Old Tuggeranong Road Pines, Canberra Centenary Trail ( North loop from Forde down to Hall has a good flow section)

    Jerrabomberra, I know it isn't Canberra but it's still close.

    And Kowen/Sparrow too.

    And Isaacs Ridge once the new gravity trails open, if that's more your style.
