Port to Port MTB


The Port to Port is an annual four-day MTB stage race that is open to riders of all abilities, with a health motto, “it’s a ride, not a race” – although there is also an elite race with some big names featuring on the start line.

The event kicks off at the idyllic Nelson Bay Marina, and once underway riders are greeted by four days of sandy tracks, fire trails, testing hill climbs, fast single tracks and steep descents that take in the spectacular Hunter Valley and Newcastle Region.

Port to Port MTB is the sister event of Australia’s number one stage MTB event, the Cape to Cape MTB in South-West Western Australia so you can be sure it will be run to perfection.
