Day 1

Collingwood and the Blue Mountains are all about adventure, so get set to feel your adrenaline pumping!  Pack your mountain bike, and head to Collingwood where you’ll check in at your accommodation and prepare yourself for the fun ahead.  First, head to Blue Mountain for some downhill riding.  The gondola takes riders to the top of the escarpment, where you can feel the rush as you careen downhill.  Cross country trails, camps and courses and bike rentals are also available! (Please check gondola times and trail conditions at the link below before heading out). Later check out the H1 Hummer Adventure with Ride On.  You’ll seek your thrills in a terrain park designed especially for this offroad master.
