Welcome to the internet home of HMBA – the oldest MTB club in NSW. Formed in 1985, HMBA have grown to become the driving force behind Cross-country (XC) and Downhill (DH) racing and riding in the Greater Hunter, Newcastle and Lake Macquarie regions.


Welcome to the new internet home of HMBA. On this site you will find all the information that you might need about the club, its people, our events, the Awaba Mountainbike Park and riding with HMBA and in the Hunter in general.

The club hosts regular club XC and DH race rounds and the occasional social ride at the Awaba Mountainbike Park, located in the foothills of the Watagans just a short drive from Cooranbong.  We also have access to some other great riding locations that host HMBA for selected XC events throughout the year.  Check out the “Calendar” for details of all our events, and “Riding with HMBA” for details of these other locations.

The club is also able to help with training to improve your riding and build confidence for both junior and adults – please check out the information on our “Coaching and Development” page.
