Reef to Reef is Australia’s newest MTB stage race taking place over four days in the heart of Tropical North Queensland.
Starting on the reef fringed Coral Sea coast this mountain bike stage race quickly heads inland across a network of trails through tablelands, hinterland, farm lands, MTB parks, and tropical rainforest before finishing back at the coast four days and 195 km’s later. Each day’s stage has its own unique terrain and character to keep things interesting with a mix of fast flowing single trail, farm track, groomed downhill trails and fire trails – many through private land that can only be ridden while racing the Reef to Reef.
