Formed in 2009, MAD is a group of passionate mountain bikers who love to ride off-road.

We are a friendly group of all ages and abilities keen to encourage others into the sport – we aim to cater for everyone whether it be racing, skills sessions or social rides.

Rowallan Park is the home of the Mad MTBC. Through a land use agreement with Mackay Scouts Group we have built 15km of expertly designed single-track. The trails aim to cater for everyone from the novice to experienced rider. We have plenty of up and downhill sections, jumps, bumps, switchbacks, rock-gardens, sweeping berms, tricky trees to ride around and through, as well as a-line and b-line options to keep you on your toes. Look for the signs on Glendaragh Road north of Mackay.

To ride at the park on your own time you must be a member of MTBA, and preferably the MAD club ;-). Please see the membership tab on this website to see our many membership options. There is a fee of $3 per person per day. You will find a sign-in station on the road into Rowallan Park. Please put your $3 in the honesty box, write your name on the whiteboard and make sure the flag is up. When you leave please remove your name from the list and, if you are the last to leave, put the flag down. These measures are in place for your safety, please respect them.

Dogs are not permitted at Rowallan Park.
