Tired of the road? Escape the asphalt and explore new terrain with our gravel and mountain bike rides!

Looking for an alternative to traditional road cycling? Gravel riding has exploded in popularity, offering adventure and freedom beyond the pavement. At Sydney Cycling Club, we organise both single-day and multi-day gravel and mountain bike rides, catering to riders of all levels. Plus, we join exciting external events to keep things fresh.


New members are welcome to join gravel or mountain bike rides to see if they like the club. Rides are run at least monthly and are organised via the SCC Gravel and Mountain Bike Crew Facebook group (open to current members).


If you like the club and plan to attend mountain bike rides regularly you’ll need to become an SCC member. To join Sydney Cycling Club for mountain bike rides, register with AusCycling and when doing so select “Sydney Cycling Club” as your club.
Joining allows you to ride regularly with the club while also granting you additional benefits such as personal accidents and 3rd party public liability insurance. If you wish to race with the club ensure your membership choice covers this by selecting one of the racing membership options.

If you also want to attend SCC road or SCC gravel rides as well as mountain biking the joining process is slightly different. To find out more, select the link below.


Every year the club organises tours to amazing off-road destinations such as Canberra, Thredbo and Bright in the Victorian highlands. SCC members can find out more by joining the Facebook group. Non-members please contact our Of Road Secretary


Each year the club attends several gravel and mountain bike events run by external organisations. These may vary each year but our favourites are:

Convict 100 
A mountain bike race offering three race distances up to 100kms, held in St Albans. 

Thunderbolts Adventure
An overnight bike-packing adventure in the Barrington Tops. 

Clarke’s Gambit
two days back-to-back gravel rides of varying distances and challenging terrain in Nelligen.
