Four days of awesome trails through state forests, wine country, hinterland, national parks, coastline and mountain bike parks on Australia’s spectacular east coast; all part of the fifth annual Port to Port MTB cycling event to be staged in May.

The big change for this year is the replacement of the traditional Stage 1 at Port Stephens, bringing the Hunter Valley course as Stage 1 and a brand new ride for Stage 2, featuring the single trail of Killingworth, making the event logistics easier and more accessible for all riders.

A new start format and seeding policy determined by your finish on stage 1 will see wave starts for Stages 2-4 designed to spread the field and add to the overall ride enjoyment on the course for everyone.

At the end of each day participants can kick back and taste local eats, beers (or wine) and everything that Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Valley has to offer.
