There are Clubs and activity companies who organise structured expeditions and rides through the summer months. See ski.com.au/activities for further information on these activity companies

Mt Beauty

Mt Beauty is one of Australia's most important mountain bike areas. Mt Beauty regularly hosts national competitions in both cross country and downhill. There is a network of tracks at the Mt Beauty Mountain Bike Park. But the surrounding hills are full of fire trails and other tracks to delight mountain bikers of all abilities.

Team Mount Beauty organises events, has links to other useful sites and is basically a group of enthusiats who love to promote mountain biking in the area.

Bikes can be hired from Rocky Valley Bikes and Snow Sports

Thredbo

Thredbo has a thriving mountain bike scene. There are several tracks down from the top of the Koscciuszko Express Chair. You must be certified before you can ride the chair. Some people called Raw NRG look after this. They also hire gear.

On a more sedate level, Raw NRG organise evening bike rides from Dead Horse Gap to Tom Groggin. This is almost all downhill on a sealed road for over 20 km, except for a couple of short uphills. They collect you at the bottom and bus you back to Thredbo. They also do other tours in the Park.
