Port to Port MTB Race is a 4 day MTB multi-stage endurance race in New South Wales, around the Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie and Newcastle region. You’ll have access to challenging climbs, thrilling descents and all the best single track they could find in the area, combined with some spectacular scenery.

Port to Port is held as a race, but is seen as more of a ride, with many riders returning each year to attend.  The course doesn’t require a high level of technical difficulty, which means that as long as you’re reasonably fit and have some MTB skills, you’ll be good to enter!

195km of riding and 3,000m of climbing in total, spread across 45 to 60km each day; the Port to Port keep things interesting with a mix of fast flowing single trail, farm tracks, testing hill climbs and groomed downhill trails – many through private land that can only be ridden during the event.
