It’s not all about the bikes with DJ Kid Kenobi and Resin Dogs lighting up the event village throughout the weekend which is particlarly cool as kids under 10 they’re free when accompanied by a paying adult, so it could be a great day out for a family.
More details of the event are available at the mtb website at https://www.mtbworldscanberra.com.au/home/
