Bruce Ridge is a relative newcomer to the collection of mountain bike trails in Canberra. While illegal trails have existed here since the 1990’s, it wasn’t until 2014 that local government endorsed the area as a legitimate mountain biking facility with signposted trails. This is a great step by the government, creating a great balance in the area between recreational users (cyclists and walkers) and the environment.
Bruce Ridge is somewhat smaller than some of the other areas to ride in Canberra, but arguably more accessible. And it definitely makes up for lack of size with a great little network of trails, suitable for all skill and fitness levels.
