    Festival Information

    Event Overview

    The Greytown MTB Club is hosting its sought after Greytown MTB Festival once again this year in the surrounds of the agricultural town of Greytown.

    While this event is neither the biggest nor the toughest, or even the most lucrative it is certainly the best value for money. Set in picturesque country scenery, the varied terrain provides opportunities for mountain bikers of all ages and abilities. The spacious Beehive venue will again offer excellent camping facilities and ablutions over the weekend, with a number of food and beverage stalls available for hungry cyclists and their families.

     

    On both days we also offer a Family Ride of 10km and a Kids Fun Ride of approximately 3km to ensure that there is entertainment for all.

    For those unfortunate enough to only visit us for one of the days we do offer the rides to be entered individually.

    The rides on Sunday are part of the Greytown Classic which is a CSA sanctioned event.
