Mountain Biking Armidale & the New England High Country
Armidale and the New England High Country have some of the best tracks in Australia, with self guided information available at New England Mountain Bike Club www.nemtb.com.au, or expert advice from New England Bike Tours. Our favourite tracks are the Piney and Fat Tyre Farm, Robbers Run, and the UNE track.
