Mountain bike ride at Hollybank

Today I drove out to the Hollybank mountain bike park which is about 12minutes from Launceston.
I had never been out there on my bike so my mate Cameron and I went for a look, we are very much amateurs on bikes but looked at it as good cross training for footy. We had both done some basic riding out at the Kate Reed tracks in Launceston.
So close to town it is an amazing place for tourists coming to Launceston.
We headed 5.2 km up the Juggernaut track before turning around and coming back to the main base. The track was very good and challenging and was more suited to experiences riders, I managed to fall of the bike a few times and grazed my knee. Next up we took on the beginners track a 5km loop. This track was fast and certainly suited our level of experience on the bikes. Also terrific scenery riding through the natural forest.
We then spent 10 minutes riding on the skills track which we found to be good and also challenging in a way that can help develop your skills.
I highly recommend taking the drive out to Hollybank, it is so close to town, extremely well signed and all the facilities for a day out with toilets and bbq on site.
