Share your thoughts on how the Adelaide Hills could be established as an international mountain biking destination and you could win a year of free access for your family to SA’s national parks.
Mountain biking is already a popular activity in the Adelaide Hills, with excellent trails suitable for all skill levels in spots such as the Eagle Mountain Bike Park, Sturt Gorge, Cobbler Creek, Fox Creek, Belair National Park and Cleland Conservation Park.
In March 2014, the South Australian Government committed to establish the Adelaide Hills as an international mountain biking destination. This would provide significant economic benefits to the hills area through improved tourism business opportunities and spin-offs in other types of outdoor recreation and sectors such as food, wine, accommodation and retail.
This plan is a large-scale vision that will bring together State Government departments, local councils, the tourism sector, business, sporting groups and the wider community.
To share your ideas on how it might be achieved and go into the draw for one of two Parks Passes, visit www.environment.sa.gov.au/haveyoursay/adelaide-hills-mountain-bike-trails before 2 March 2015.
