Cycling and Mountain Biking in Mudgee

Here at the Horatio we are big fans of cycling, from cruising around the streets of town, to venturing out among the vineyards and beyond, there is no shortage of terrain to pedal in our diverse & beautiful region. Mudgee Common is just west of the town centre and has some seriously good single dirt tracks crafted by the good folk at Dirt Art, with trails to suit all levels of riders.

A group of local riders got together with the Mid Western Regional Council to create a series of trails from easy rides around town, to long distance dirt tracks that meander through paddocks, river flats, farmland and vineyards for cyclists who want to mix business with pleasure - so you can get your daily dose of cycling, whilst taking in all the beautiful sights and sounds of Mudgee region. The book of 20 trails is worth checking out, and is available for free download from Mudgee Regional Council.

For some next level off road Mountain biking, you have to head out to Mudgee Common and check out some of the awesome new trails the guys at Dirt Art helped to develop in conjunction with the Mid Western Regional Council and Mudgee Cycle Club. Most of the tracks are detailed on Trailforks, and there's a great forum on FaceBook to touch base with local riders.
