Biking in Derby
Mountain biking in Derby
Derby used to be a prosperous town with the richest tin mine in the world but then suffered a disaster that caused havoc to the town. Nowadays, Derby is a mecca for mountain biking enthusiasts thanks to its premier mountain bike networks – Blue Derby.
Blue Derby – the star of mountain biking trails network in Tasmania and Australia – brings to you the legendary trails and world-class adventures. With more than 120 kilometers of purpose-built trails, Blue Derby has numerous singletracks from green to double-black that excite any rider with all skill levels.
It is the magnificent nature as well as the lovely and all-about-bike town that make Blue Derby even more appealing. People in Derby love biking as much as you do and they offer everything for your best biking experience here.
Let’s appreciate all the hard work that Dorset Council, Break O Day Council, World Trail, and amazing supporters that help built this incredible trails system, making such history and economic turnaround of Derby.
