While Australia has historically had a strong reputation in Olympic cycling, it would be fair to say the country was not previously a place where casual cyclists toured. However, things have changed massively since the turn of the century, with Australia now boasting a network of cycling trails to rival anything you will find elsewhere. With that in mind, we have scoured Australia to identify our favourite cycling routes, starting with one which is approved by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA).

Vans BMX teammates Perris Benegas and Dennis Enarson may be separated by over 2,500 miles — the former calls Wilmington, NC, her home, while the latter resides in San Diego, CA — but the vast distance between their BMX-friendly hometowns belies their many similarities.

Here is all you need to know. - Aged just 11, Reilly landed a 720 over a spine then made his FISE debut in 2018 and has gone from strength-to-strength including a starring role in Drew Bezanson's Uncontained 2019-winning team.
