Now in it’s 6th year, the Gravitate Tropical MountainBike Festival again sets out to provide a truly unique take on the Mountain Bike Festival.Since it’s inception as a ‘reunion’ for the original ‘Great Northern Hill Tribe’ – who set out to determine the Australian way of MTB life – Gravitate has moved on to expand over all regions of Tropical North Queensland and incorporate multiple clubs and voices who together for 2016 will be hosting 2 exciting weekends of events and activities catering to all disciplines. The icing on the cake for 2016 sees Gravitate run alongside the Internationally acclaimed Croc Trophy event with participants able to take part in a ‘Taste of the Croc’ – experiencing a sample of the multi-day course for themselves.

On the calendar for 2016, Gravitate Tropical Mountain Bike Festival is hosting the following events between the Cairns Mountain Bike Club, Mareeba Mountain Goats and D.I.R.T Club (Port Douglas).

A glimpse of years gone past…

Vintage bikes, if ever we thought we were being complacent with 8″ of travel under ourselves these days.. Racing these beasts down the trails sure made us think.. ‘what were we thinking’?

We’ve had meandering All-mountain rides through the tablelands, day/night pony express battles, pump track racing, dirt jumps and possibly Australia’s first ever true, natural dirt-bowl jump, Dirt Jump james, Pump track racing and kids skills days to name a few….
