Ride the Red Centre: upgraded mountain bike trails open in Alice Springs

Alice Springs is solidifying its reputation as a mecca for mountain bike tourism and outdoor recreation with the opening of nearly 100km of upgraded mountain bike and shared-use trails last weekend.

The Northern Territory Government’s $800 000 investment into the trail network in Alice Springs is part of the Mountain Bike Master Plan positioning the Red Centre as a world-class destination for cycling and adventure tourism.

The trail network on the west side of Alice Springs now meets International Mountain Biking Association standards and connects up to existing trails in the Alice Springs Telegraph Station Reserve with 22 distinct trails of varying difficulty ratings, whether on foot or on two wheels.
