Today marks our 5th birthday, and what a ride it’s been! We’ve been through a fair bit in these five short years, surviving floods, fires, and global pandemics, while hosting over 100k riders, several national and continental level events, and expanding our trail network to nearly 100 trails.
Thank you to our incredible team of staff led by General Manager, Rhys Ellis. Without our amazing team, MBP just wouldn’t be the same.
Thank you to all the land management and government stakeholders who have supported us in getting to this point (the list is too long!).
Thank you to all of those who have invested in and around the town of Maydena, particularly those who have moved here to live and ride with us full-time.
And lastly, a huge thanks to every single rider who has joined us over the past 5 years. A special mention to our many regulars, who have become a large part of what makes this place so special.
Take a look back through the years and how our network has changed, with a look into some of our iconic trails along the way in the video below.
Over the past 5 years we have progressively expanded MBP, adding dozens of new trails, new facilities, new products, and new services. While we have typically had a clear plan for all projects across these past 5 years, we have been forced to make rolling changes in response to a whole range of challenges (such as COVID-19!).
We expect 2023 to be a transformational year at MBP, with the hosting of our first EWS Global event, among many other exciting projects and developments.
We’ve been working hard on a 5 year master plan for MBP, which maps out our development goals through 2028. The plan is big, bold, and exciting. While we may not reach all our targets, we are committed to pursuing every project in the plan, which will be delivered internally, and through a range of new partnerships.
The plan will remain in draft form for the next couple of months, with opportunities for public comment opening up in the coming days.
