"Bike Buller is by far one of my favourite events to do in the world!" Josh Carlson (GIANT Factory Off Road Team; Gravity Enduro World Series rider) 

“The Bike Buller Festival has to be one of Australia’s best events - challenging, diverse and rewarding racing on superb trails in one of Australia’s most beautiful settings.” Mick Ross, Co-Editor FLOW MTB. www.flowmountainbike.com

The Bike Buller is designed as a super fun mountain bike event for everyone! Racers can race, recreational riders can enjoy the trails and the scenery, non-riders can do their own thing and we can all get together to enjoy a good party on Saturday night. This is what riding is all about!
