Amber Gardner, CEO of Tourism North East says the dedicated ‘one-stop-shop’ website recognises the popularity of cycling in the region.

“The High Country has long been acknowledged a having the strongest cycle tourism credentials in the state, featuring three signature rail trails, the only internationally recognised mountain bike trails in the southern hemisphere, and the toughest and most popular cycling rides in the country.
