Experience The Convict

Feb 12, 2024

The Convict 100, one of Australia’s longest running and most loved cross-country mountain biking events is on the horizon. In just under 3 months over 1,000 riders will descend onto the sleepy village of St Albans as it becomes the centre of the mountain biking scene for the first weekend in May.

2024 is shaping up to be a special year for the Convict. All three distances (48km, 67km & 100km) offer a fresh challenge for riders to conquer, while retaining the spirit of the event we all know and love. 

The challenge of the Convict trails remain: untamed and ungroomed. A journey out into the wilderness and away from civilisation, with views opening up across the Australian bush as you climb. Following the ridge tops, the trail rises and falls along the historic Convict Trail and Old Great North Road. Descending back to the valley floor you return to St Albans, cheered on by local volunteer firies. Finally making your way through the finish arch, a well earned finishers medal around your neck, and an ice-cold Mountain Culture beer at the third oldest pub in Australia. Now that is a race finish!

We look forward to seeing you there!
