Welcome to Bike Melrose

For fat tyre and thin, for the road or the mountain and everything in between, Bike Melrose have the low down on all things pedal powered in the Southern Flinders Ranges.

We are a membership based organization, working to create a world class cycling experience for our members. The continual support of our members helps us to grow and develop trails, infrastructure and the local community to support cycling ventures in the Southern Flinders Ranges.

The Bike Melrose team have been involved with bringing the cycling community together since our humble beginnings in 2002, when we went by the name of ‘The Southern Flinders Rough Riders Inc.”. We have spent a number of years, predominantly relying on the generosity of volunteers, working with the local community, generous land owners and passionate bike riders alike to create trails and promote the health and lifestyle benefits of cycling from our base in the picturesque town of Melrose.

Fast forward to 2017 and as interest in cycling grew within the community, so did the diversity of the participants and activities. No longer was the cycling community centered around mountain biking on the ‘rough’ and challenging trails that wind around the base of Mount Remarkable – we decided to embrace all forms of cycling – because here, if it’s got two wheels and pedals it’s sure to be a whole lot of fun!

Under the name Bike Melrose we now have something for everyone, big and small with an interest in powering their adventures through this brilliant part of the world on their own two wheels. We’ve got road rides, a pump track, a skills park and trails for every member of the family!
