Nerang is 12-kilometres from Surfers Paradise, a few kilometres from the Nerang train station and home to over 1700-hectares of mountain bike terrain.
Nerang played host to the mountain bike events for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
For cycling enthusiasts there's much on offer. Load up the mountain bikes and enjoy the excitement of tackling 20-kilometres of designated mountain bike tracks through dry rainforest and open eucalypt forests. Trails range from the easy Casuarina Grove circuit to intermediate tracks through tall forest and rough terrain.
The most popular starting point is accessed by parking at the Nerang Velodrome on Hope Street and cutting through the middle of the facility (watch for traffic on the criterium circuit).
Expect a variety of fire trails with off-shoots of technically challenging singletrack through rock gardens, small drop offs and creek beds. Exploration is the key to find the tracks. There are lots of single tracks running off the fire trails so get out there and go hard. If you want to explore the area with someone in the know, go to the Nerang Mountain Bike shop in Nerang West as the Gold Coast Mountain Bike Club run a social ride most Saturdays.
