The majority of the trails in Mystic Park are built and maintained by Alpine Cycling Club volunteers over many years with funds raised mostly by club run events.
The land that Mystic Park is located on is leased by HVP as a working pine plantation and is managed by Alpine Community Plantations for recreational use. Alpine Cycling Club have a seat on the board of Alpine Community Plantation, however we are a separate entity and the club is not involved in the day to day decision making and financial administration of ACP.

The Alpine Cycling Club is ever-evolving to offer it’s members more. If you’re contemplating an MTBA race licence, find comfort in the fact that we’re planning on running/contributing significantly to 11 mountain bike events over the next 12 months, the Inverted Enduro, 8x Twilight Series, Bright 3hr & the Alfred 6hr. There are other events that could also enter the calendar, such as a Gravity Enduro (tbc). So for those that want to race mountain bikes, there’s value in your membership.
If you’re not fussed on racing but love hitting our local MTB trails there’s also non-racing MTBA licences available that will offer you insurances in case something goes wrong. Club membership that hold an MTBA licence also qualify you for passes into Mystic if they also meet the required trail maintenance volunteer hours (read above).
If you just like to go riding on the rail trail or love scaling some of the local climbs on your road bike we’re working hard to offer these members more too, with special club only organised rides, social events and the odd race (Tour of Bright & ACC Crits). If this sounds like you, you can become a club member via Cycling Australia
We want to make all forms of riding as a club member fun, social and bring our members together for some friendly banter, storytelling and good times!
