Trails

MTBA as the governing body for mountain biking in Australia has a role to play in the provision of advice and support to clubs and key stakeholders involved in the facilitation and development of MTB trails.

Project Update – National MTB Standards/Guidelines and Professional Certification Framework

The idea to develop Australian standards/guidelines around the sustainable design and construction of mountain bike trails was raised with the mountain bike community by the MTBA CEO at the 2014 Australian MTB Summit held at Mt Buller.

At the 2015 Australian MTB Summit a project working group was established to investigate the options and methodology to develop national mountain bike trail standards and a professional mountain bike trail building certification framework.

Members of this initial working group are:

  •  Louise Wallace (former President WAMBA)
  • Craig Stonestreet (Director, Natural Trails)
  • Craig Meinicke (Director, Touchpoint One)
  •  Marty Krieg (Principal Consultant, Ediacara Consulting)
  •  Simon French (Director, DirtArt)
  • Denise Cox (Operations Manager, MTBA)

By November 2016, the working group will aim to have investigated a range of options to deliver national mountain bike trail standards/guidelines and a professional mountain bike trail building certification framework.

The results of these investigations and consultations will be presented to the MTB community at the end of the year.
