A great dirt loop around Canberra: “Canberra Centenary Trail without the suburbs” is made up of the Bicentennial National Trail (BNT) and the Canberra Centenary Trail (CCT). The route avoids crossing the suburbs. New loop rides in the north and south follow cross links reviewed by CyclingGravel recently.
Interesting ride possibilities
Consider cutting across Canberra to loop back to the start. Two links (see maps below) show how this is possible mostly on dirt tracks. “Southern Canberra ridges” is most effective. For more about these links read the ride reviews.
